Jennifer Tilly to make cameo appearance in The Simpsons

Saturday, 17 March 2012

The list of people to have had cameo roles in The Simpsons is an illustrious one and the name of Bluff Europe columnist Jennifer Tilly can be added to it.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the one time Bride of Chucky helps Lisa brush up on her hold'em strategy by appearing in a coaching DVD after Homer, not trusting the banks, puts all of his daughter's college savings into an online poker account (only Homer could manage to put a chunk of money onto an online poker site post Black Friday).

Executive producer on the show, Al Jean told, “It was a real pleasure to have the Bride of Chucky on the show. Only three people in the crew were mysteriously killed.”

Tilly isn't the only poker player to appear in a top US comedy. Erik Seidel made a blink and you'll miss it appearance in Curb Your Enthusiasm, while Antonio Esfandiari and Alec Torreli made it onto Entourage.
