Gal Gadot auditions for role of Lisa Simpson

'Wonder Woman' star makes hilarious cameo on season premiere of 'The Simpsons.'

Apparently, Gal Gadot still has to audition. You'd think that wouldn't be the case considering the blockbuster success of "Wonder Woman" and the life-changing year she had in 2017. But in the animated world of Springfield, anything is possible.

The Israeli actress makes a cameo in the 30th season premiere of "The Simpsons," airing this Sunday night. In the episode's storyline, movie producers have decided to make a film based on the Simpsons' life and Homer and his neighbor Ned Flanders are determining which actors should portray everyone in the movie. That's when the 33-year-old Gadot walks in to audition for the role of Lisa Simpson, the precocious and perennial 2nd-grader who serves as the family's moral center.

Gadot recorded the voice-over months ago and announced the news back in February on Twitter, writing that she grew up watching 'The Simpsons' in Israel.


She joins the hundreds of other celebrities who have voiced cameos during the show's 639 episodes over the past three decades – including Elizabeth Taylor, Kelsey Grammer, Anne Hathaway and Ricky Gervais. This season alone, Gadot will join the likes of Tracy Morgan, RuPaul, Emily Deschanel and Jon Lovitz. The series is the longest-running sitcom in the United States.

"The Simpsons" must've sparked an interest in voiceover work for Gadot, the mother of two daughters. She'll next be heard in the upcoming Disney animated film "Ralph Breaks the Internet" which arrives in theaters on Nov. 21.


It's a busy fall for the actress who is wrapping up filming on the Wonder Woman sequel, and is in pre-production on two other films: "Red Notice," an action comedy co-starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and a Showtime TV series about legendary actress-turned-inventor Hedy Lamarr.
