Matt Groening to guest star as himself on Portlandia


The Simpsons creator Matt Groening is to guest star as himself in an episode of Portlandia.

Matt Groening will portray a disgruntled version of himself who sues Spike (Fred Armisen) after he creates an unlicensed “Bart Ska-mpson” T-shirt.

Groening was contacted for the role through another Simpsons writer, Matt Selman, who knows Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. A guest appearance on another TV show is very rare for Matt Groening who only really guest appears in obscure documentaries. Groening says that he has not acted since a cameo on The Tracey Ullman Show in 1988.

The episode he guest stars in, “Fashion”, airs tomorrow, 12th February!
