THE SIMPSONS First Look: STAR TREK Alum Brent Spiner Gets Animated

Good News: STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION alum Brent Spiner will very soon be returning to his robotic roots thanks to an upcoming episode of THE SIMPSONS. Bad News: Well, aside for poor Lenny and Carl, who will very soon find themselves with a little too much time to spend at Moe’s Tavern, Mr. Burns’ decision to keep Homer as Springfield Power Plant’s sole human employee amidst a roomful of robots (voiced by Spiner) is most definitely not going to end well. Or at least that was the distinct impression we were left with following a first look at these just obtained photos from the upcoming March 18th episode of THE SIMPSONS appropriately titled “Them, Robot.” See for yourself, after the jump.

THE SIMPSONS airs Sundays at 8PM on FOX (Global TV in Canada) and features the voice talents of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Harry Shearer, Hank Azaria, Pamela Hayden, Tress MacNeille and more. Catch up on past episodes you may have missed for free online at
