Donald Trump isn’t the only conservative reality-TV star with interesting hair and dreams of becoming president of the United States: EW has learned that Ted Nugent will make a bid for America’s top office when he lends his voice to an episode of The Simpsons. In next season’s “Politically Inept, With Homer Simpson,” the famous rocker/hunter plays himself – as a Republican candidate for president who seeks Homer’s endorsement. (Homer, as it turns out, has become a populist TV pundit with his show “Gut Check with Homer Simpson.”) This marks the Motor City Madman’s first appearance on the animated Fox comedy, though he was briefly heard on the phone in season 19’s “I Don’t Wanna Know Why The Caged Bird Sings.”
