‘The Simpsons’ creator to join ‘South Park’ cast as ‘Super Snitch’ character
The creators of the “The Simpsons” are coming on board to play a “Super Snick-like” character on the upcoming South Park comedy, Variety has learned.
Matt Groening, the creator of the popular animated series, will join the cast of “South Park” as a snitch, according to a source familiar with the project.
Groening will play “Snitch Simpson,” a fictional character who is part of a “super-villainous” group of characters and the voice of the show’s narrator.
The role, which is set to be revealed in the fall, will allow Groening to work alongside “South Street,” the South Park character who voices the narrator, and his fellow snitches.
The actor, who also voices the title character in the show, said he was excited to be working with Groening.
Groening’s character has already been portrayed on the show and on the big screen.
In the “South Side Story” episode, “I Am the Snitch,” the character was played by John Stamos.
The showrunner of the series, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, previously worked together on “Southland,” a cartoon-style series that was produced in 2013 and 2015.
In a tweet Thursday, the showrunner, Jon Favreau, tweeted a photo of a poster of “The South Park” characters with the caption, “Got a little bit of a gag in my office this week.
You should see the SNICK!
I am the Snick!””
South Park: The Stick of Truth” will air on HBO on Nov. 30, 2019.
