Jerusalem, Sept 21 (ANI): ‘The Simpsons’ are heading to Israel in an upcoming episode of the popular animated cartoon that will be screened in 2010.

And their tour guide is going to be comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

According to Entertainment Weekly magazine, in the new episode titled ‘The Greatest Story Ever D’ohed’, Cohen plays an aggressive Israeli tour guide, who takes the family around during their church group tour of the Holy Land.

The executive producer of the show Al Jean said that Cohen’s character is “trying to get Marge to give him good grades on the comment card, and she goes, ‘You people are pushy,’ and he goes, ‘What do you mean, you people? You try having Syria for a neighbour! What do you have - Canada?’”

Meanwhile, Homer Simpson develops Jerusalem Syndrome and believes that he is the messiah.

“It’ll be a show that all faiths can come together and be offended by,” the Jerusalem Post quoted Jean as jokingly saying. (ANI)
