  Pop Idol judge's nasty role in The Simpsons
Updated 30 April 2003, 07.58
Simon Cowell will play a nursery school teacher in The Simpsons
Simon Cowell is to star in The Simpsons as yet another Mr Nasty.

The sarcastic Pop Idol judge has landed the part of a nursery school admissions teacher.

His character treats the toddlers in the same way as Simon treated the Pop Idol stars - with some cruel put-downs.

Big star

The storyline is that the Simpsons are having trouble getting Maggie into a nursery school.

Simon's character is the strict guy they have to deal with to get the baby a place.

Simon's a big star in the US after the massive success of American Idol.

'Fun villain'

"Simon's very popular in the US," a Simpsons spokesman said. "We thought it would be funny if he played the nursery school admissions officer.

"There's a history in American television of people we love to hate - fun villains. But overall, I'd say he's liked rather than loathed."
