  Simpsons creator gets star role
Updated 14 April 2004, 21.12

Homer Simpson and Matt Groening
The brain behind The Simpsons, Matt Groening, is to guest star on his show.

It will be his first ever guest appearance on the programme which has made him extremely famous.

In the episode, he will be "Comic Book Guy", who sweeps Bart's teacher, Edna Krabappel, off her feet at a sci-fi convention, whilst signing autographs.

The episode will be shown on US TV on Sunday night. In the episode, he will only be identified as the creator of his other series, Futurama.

The episode, called My Big Fat Geek Wedding (a joke on the real film from last year called My Big Fat Greek Wedding), shows Principal Skinner changing his mind about his marriage to Edna.

He gets what is called "cold feet", and Edna calls the marriage off. She then has a crush on "Comic Book Guy" at the convention.

Groening has appeared on the show before - but only in a framed photo on the wall of Comic Book Guy's shop.

This will be his first speaking part.

The Simpsons is now in its 16th series in the US.
