Hey, Jay! Better get the doughnuts ready


It's a pretty good bet that when a major new movie comes out, you'll find the star on a nighttime network TV talk show. "The Simpsons Movie" is no exception. Movie star Homer Simpson, who plays his animated self in the flick coming out July 27th, has been booked for NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Tuesday, July 24th.

It's being billed by NBC as Simpson's "only publicity stop." Be sure to tune in for the very beginning of the show. "Due to scheduling restrictions, the first time film star will be restricted to making a brief appearance during the show's monologue," said NBC's announcement.
