On The Simpsons episode ‘Friends and Family,’ Mr. Burns hires all of The Simpsons (except Homer) to play a family virtual-reality game with him. While Mr. Burns plays the father figure, Homer gets to know his new next-door neighbor Julia. There’s a reason why he likes her (at first) — she acts just like Homer.
The new neighbor is voiced by Allison Janney. She’s known for her roles on Mom (Bonnie), Masters of Sex (Margaret Scully), and The West Wing (C.J. Cregg), among others. Janney is also recognized for her roles in the films The Girl on the Train (Officer Riley), Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Dr. Golan), Margaret (Monica Patterson), and The Help (Charlotte Phelan), among others. The Simpsons airs Sundays at 8pm on FOX.
