Starting Lineup of Guest Voices Includes All-Star Athletes Tom Brady, Warren Sapp, Yao Ming, LeBron James and Michelle Kwan
In THE SIMPSONS post-Super Bowl XXXIX episode, "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass," after Homer inadvertently performs a wild crowd-pleasing dance at a local carnival, he is hired by several prolific sports figures - including Tom Brady, LeBron James, Warren Sapp, Yao Ming and Michelle Kwan, guest-starring as themselves - to choreograph their victory dances. After his dances prove successful, Homer is tapped to choreograph the Super Bowl halftime show. Panicked the night before the event, Homer enlists the help of his neighbor, Ned Flanders, and together they put on a nonviolent, deeply meaningful half-time show that America chastises for its blatant display of decency on THE SIMPSONS immediately following Super Bowl Super Bowl XXXIX Sunday, Feb. 6 (Approx. 10:00-10:30 PM ET/7:00-7:30 PM PT) on FOX.
