Simpsons episode feat. Tom Waits airing this Sunday

ANTI announced on Twitter Fox will be airing the episode of The Simpsons featuring Tom Waits on Sunday, January 6.


Back in August, TVLine announced Tom Waits would play himself as someone who helps introduce Homer to a community of survivalists but Waits wouldn’t sing in the episode, titled Homer Goes to Prep School.


From Fox.com:
The Simpsons “Homer Goes to Prep School” - 8/7c (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT)
ALL NEW HOMER PREPARES FOR DOOMSDAY ON AN ALL-NEW “THE SIMPSONS” SUNDAY, JANUARY 6, ON FOX
Tom Waits Makes Guest-Voice Appearance
Homer joins the “Springfield Preppers,” an off-the-grid survivalist group whose leader (guest voice Waits) has set up a top-secret retreat outside of town to prepare for the end of the world. But Marge grows skeptical of the group’s alarmist shenanigans.

Waits will not play himself. He will play a prepper named Lloyd.

Good episode. Waits was in his usual acerbic zone.

I thought he did a good job voicing the character, as well as any other "professional" voice actor. The Simpsons is just not a funny show anymore, though.

It was an okay episode with a couple of funny gags. Tom's part in it was a bit tentative in general and I do think that on this occasion the voice didn't match the face.
