Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein Move from 'Portlandia' to Springfield for ‘The Simpsons'
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein will soon find out if they can put a bird on it in Springfield too. The Simpsons has tapped the dynamic duo of IFC’s Portlandia to guest star on an episode, entitled The Day the Earth Stayed Cool, that will air next fall.
Fred and Carrie will voice characters who are part of a “cool” family which moves in next door to The Simpsons from Portland. In the episode Homer will try to be friends with them, but Marge will remain skeptical about being that "cool."
Simpsons executive producer Al Jean said the Portlandia stars are "the best thing to come out of Portland since everything our show took out of Portland," including Portland native and show creator Matt Groening.
