A new guest voice for the next installment of the Treehouse of Horror series has been revealed!
Neil Gaiman will appear in the episode, voicing the silent cat Snowball! He confirmed the news on his Twitter account.
I am on the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror this year. I do not play myself this time. Instead I voice a character who has not spoken before.

He hints it as a spoof to his 2002 novella Coraline, with Lisa as Coraline Jones, and Snowball will be Coraline’s sarcastic black cat, both adventuring in and out of a parallel dimension.
Gaiman also retweeted a tweet about another British celebrity voicing a character that have never spoken before, referencing Elizabeth Tailor voicing Maggie’s first word in the 1992 episode “Lisa’s First Word“.
Another brit takes Simpsons voice acting role for character that has never spoken. this is happening every 25-30 years now, unacceptable!
