Gal Gadot fails to impress Homer Simpson in cameo preview

Israeli actress to play herself on 30th Season premier of Fox’s hit animated sitcom, airing on September 30

Ahead of Gal Gadot’s first cameo appearance on “The Simpsons” later this month, Fox released a preview of the episode giving viewers a sneak peek into her role on the show.

The episode sees Homer Simpson and his friend and neighbor Ned Flanders holding auditions for actors after a group of Christian producers offer the Simpsons a movie deal.

In the preview, Gadot is seen playing herself, but trying out for the part of Lisa Simpson.

As she begins reading the script, Flanders cuts her off immediately and tells her she’s got the part. But Homer is not convinced.

“Wait, wait, wait. I know you were great in “Fast & Furious,” but what else were you in?” he asks with a straight face.

Gadot’s first major US acting job was in the fourth installment of “Fast & Furious” (2008), but she played a supporting character and is far more well-known for her Wonder Woman movies — a series which she, in turn, asks Homer if he’s ever seen.

“Whenever I see the DC [Comics] logo, I immediately fall asleep,” Homer replies, unimpressed.

The 30th season premiere of the Simpsons will air on September 30.

Gadot had indicated that she would be appearing on the hit animated television show in a Twitter post last February.

“I grew up watching the Simpsons and now I get to voice myself in an episode,” she wrote. “Stay tuned.”

The tweet included a short video of Gadot signing a poster covered in Simpsons characters.

The star, whose swashbuckling depiction of warrior heroine “Wonder Woman” made her a household name, has since hosted episodes of comedy show “Saturday Night Live.”

Gadot played the lead character in the 2017 Warner Bros. Pictures version of DC Comics action hero “Wonder Woman.” She has been signed up to star in the sequel to the movie, which grossed a record-breaking $890 million at the box office.
