In the Season 30 premiere of The Simpsons, “Bart’s Not Dead,” after taking on a dare, Bart ends up in the hospital. To avoid getting his mother Marge upset, Bart says for a moment he went to Heaven and met Jesus. When Christian producers hear of Bart’s story, they offer Homer a movie deal and of course, he accepts it. Bart eventually feels guilty and comes cleans but after the movie is finished.
Bart in the fictional movie “Bart’s Not Dead” is voiced by Jonathan Groff. He’s known for his roles on Netflix’s Mindhunter (Holden Ford), HBO’s Looking (Patrick Murray), NBC’s Glee (Jesse St. James), and One Life to Live (Henry Mackler), among others. Oh, and he was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actor for “Spring Awakening” in 2007, won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album for “Hamilton”, and was the voice of Kristoff in the 2013 Disney film Frozen, maybe you heard of it. The Simpsons airs Sundays at 8pm on FOX.
