EW reports that in the coming season, The Simpsons‘ news anchor Kent Brockman will hear from The Newsroom creator and showrunner Aaron Sorkin when Brockman has some career decisions to make. Warning – minor plot spoilers follow:



In the episode, titled “Four Regrettings And A Funeral,” Brockman weighs a transition from local news to big cable, and his potential choice is Fox News. As you might imagine, Aaron Sorkin has something to say about this. We’ll also see cameos from Joe Namath and Gordon Ramsay. I haven’t watched The Simpsons regularly for years, but I don’t think I’ll be able to resist watching this episode when it airs (on FOX of course) next fall. I’ve seen Sorkin cameo before, and he seems to have a good grasp on fitting amusingly into the show while also making fun of himself.

Will you be watching?

(HBO’s The Newsroom will return in summer of 2013.)
