Exclusive Photos: The Simpsons Poised to Send Anderson Cooper Back to the Future

Anderson Cooper The SimpsonsAnderson Cooper truly will go anywhere for a big news story — even the year 2043.

The CNN fixture will play himself in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons partially set three decades into the future, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The story finds Lisa befriending a girl who is her match in every way, except one: she’s a conservative Republican. “They end up running against each other in the second-grade election,” explains exec producer Al Jean. “And then we flash to the future where they’re [engaged] in an actual presidential debate — and Anderson is the moderator.”

So, what does a 75-year-old Cooper look like? Not much different than the current 45-year-old version, turns out. Says Jean with a laugh: “He has that sort of luck that even 30 years from now he’ll look the same.”

The episode is slated to air in December.
