Get ready, Gleeks. Your favorite high school singers, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley are all going to turn into ‘toons
You’re about to see the Glee trio of Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley as you’ve never seen them before – literally. Fox officially confirmed to Hollywoodlife.com that the trio will be appearing as cartoons on The Simpsons next season!
We first got wind of the network crossover from Lea, 23, when she tweeted the big news Feb. 16. “Recorded an episode of the Simpsons today! So cool!!!! Will let everyone know when it’s gonna air!” Well, we beat you to that, girlfriend, sorry! Cory, 27 was equally excited about his new gig. “Just recorded a guest spot for [the show]. one of the best moments of my life thus far.” he wrote on his Twitter page Feb. 13.
For Amber, who just turned 24 on Feb. 15, this seems to be a pretty killer way to celebrate! Between thanking fans for her b-day wishes, she let it slip that she was going yellow for the hit animated show. “I’m gonna be a simpsons character lol” she tweeted in reply to a friend on Feb. 12.
Its official kids, you’ve made it to the big time! Becoming a Simpsons character is a huge Hollywood rite of passage! We’re totes excited, aside from the painfully long wait ahead of us. Though the episode is already wrapped, its not scheduled to air until some time during the series’ 22nd season.
In the meantime, don’t have a cow, man.
