London, Mar 20 (ANI): US President Barack Obama and Brit actor Russell Brand are being considered for an appearance in American animated sitcom The Simpsons.

Executive producers James L Brooks and Al Jean hope that 47-year-old Obama will become the first president in office to appear on the show.

Wed love to have Barack on the show. No president has agreed to do it yet but well keep asking, the Sun quoted Brooks as telling TV Biz.

Were putting all the right signals out, he said.

Jean revealed that he found Brand, 33, to be very funny, and that the latter would not mind doing a show on him.

I would definitely be interested in writing an episode around him, he said.

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair had appeared on the show in 2003 while he was still in office, and the producers also hope ex-US president George W Bush will agree to appear in Springfield. (ANI)
