Off to the Big Top in the Sky?
Hollywood is buzzing with the thought that one of the major characters on The Simpsons, Krusty the Clown, will be killed off in the show’s Season 26 premiere in September.
The show’s producer has promised that there will be a major death, and says that the actor who voices the doomed character has won an Emmy. That plus the title of the season opener – “Clown in the Dumps” – has everyone thinking it will be Krusty.
Krusty is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, who also voices Homer Simpson – and he has in fact won an Emmy.
Will it happen? Will Krusty shuffle off to join Brian from Family Guy in the cartoon cemetery? (Yes, I know, Brian’s departure was temporary.)
The producer says, “I didn’t say I was killing Krusty… I didn’t say I wasn’t.”
