Dinner for Schmucks star Paul Rudd will be lending his voice to the 22nd season of The Simpsons. Fox announced the upcoming season’s slate of guest voices (which also includes Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan and House’s Hugh Laurie, among others) at the Television Critics Association press tour on August 2 in Los Angeles. Rudd will play Dr. Zander – a therapist who runs a “fathering enrichment class” that Homer must attend after being caught throttling Bart on a JumboTron. Rudd’s episode is slated to air in early 2011, according to Entertainment Weekly. The new season of The Simpsons debuts Sept. 26; Dinner for Schmucks is in theaters now!
