STARS ALIGN IN SPRINGFIELD FOR SEASON 22 OF "THE SIMPSONS"

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Hugh Laurie, Halle Berry, Ricky Gervais, Daniel Radcliffe, Jemaine Clement, Bret McKenzie, Mark Zuckerberg, Mike Scioscia, Martha Stewart, Paul Rudd, Rachel Weisz, Cheech & Chong, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Alyson Hannigan, Danica Patrick, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Joe Mantegna Among Guest Voices for Upcoming Season

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Hugh Laurie, Halle Berry, Ricky Gervais, Daniel Radcliffe, Jon Hamm and Martha Stewart are among the guest voices in the upcoming 22nd season of THE SIMPSONS premiering Sunday, Sept. 26 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

In "Elementary School Musical," the season premiere episode, MARGE (Julie Kavner) sends LISA (Yeardley Smith) to a performing arts camp where artsy counselors (guest voices Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie of "Flight of the Conchords") and fellow musically inclined campers (guest voices Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley of GLEE) inspire her to embrace her creative side. After she returns to Springfield, Lisa becomes restless with her ho-hum suburban lifestyle and catches the first bus to Sprooklyn in hopes of reconnecting with her inner hipster.

This fall, British imports Hugh Laurie (HOUSE) and Daniel Radcliffe ("Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince") provide guest voices in the 21st annual "Treehouse of Horror XXI" Halloween spook-tacular. Later in the season, actor Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") voices an FBI supervisor in "Donnie Fatso"; and Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, baseball legend Mike Scioscia and sports writer Bill James all lend their voice talents to "MoneyBart." Lifestyle guru Martha Stewart spreads holiday cheer as herself in "The Fight Before Christmas," an episode that also features live-action puppets.

Additional guest stars stopping by Springfield this upcoming season include actors Kristen Wiig ("Saturday Night Live"), Paul Rudd ("Dinner For Schmucks"), Rachel Weisz ("The Lovely Bones") and Alyson Hannigan ("How I Met Your Mother"); NASCAR driver Danica Patrick; comic duo Cheech & Chong; and NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Additionally, Joe Mantegna ("Criminal Minds") returns as FAT TONY.

Now the longest-running comedy in television history, THE SIMPSONS immediately struck a chord with viewers across the country as it poked fun of itself and everything in its wake. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and the family members have become television icons. The series features the voice talents of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman is the animation house.
