D’oh! Tesla’s Elon Musk to Star in Episode of ‘The Simpsons’

Elon Musk already sports a pretty impressive resume as CEO of electric-car company Tesla and of private spacecraft maker SpaceX. Now the 43-year-old billionaire entrepreneur is about to top it off with a feature appearance in everyone’s favorite animated TV show, "The Simpsons.” Musk, not exactly a novice to the big screen, will play himself (or at least his voice will) in an upcoming episode in which he somehow leaves centenarian nuclear plant owner Mr. Burns bankrupt. "Simpsons" Executive Producer Al Jean made the announcement over the weekend at the Comic-Con International convention in San Diego, Entertainment Weekly reports. "Burns tries to kill him, and we reveal Musk's master password," Jean tweeted on Monday. Musk’s episode, which airs Jan. 11, will be titled “The Musk Who Fell To Earth,” according to jalopnik.com.
