Recovering alcoholic Russell Brand wants The Simpsons writers to make him a drunk when he appears on the hit show.
The comedian has been sober for eight years, but is desperate to relapse with cartoon boozehounds Homer Simpson and Barney Gumble when he records a cameo for The Simpsons later this year.

He says, “It’s true I’m going to be on The Simpsons. I was having an amazing birthday party… and then my agent says, ‘Oh, The Simpsons want you in an episode.’ Once you’ve gone yellow, you’ve made it.

“My ideal show would be where I have a cartoon relapse with Barney and Homer and get smashed out of my mind with them.”
