FOX has announced that it plans to do a three-minute live segment of “The Simpsons” for its May 15th episode.
The character of Homer Simpson, voiced by Dan Castellaneta, will take fan questions during the episode where he’ll discuss topical subjects. The segment will air live on both the East and West Coast broadcasts.
Showrunner Al Jean says the segment will use a motion capture technology in which Homer’s voice and motions will be depicted in an animated scene talking about things he “could only be saying live on that day.”
FOX is urging fans to tweet their questions using the hashtag #HomerLive beginning Sunday, May 1st through Wednesday, May 4th.
