A producer for The Simpsons has revealed brothers Liam and Chris Hemsworth, plus Hugh Jackman, all turned down guest-starring roles on the sitcom. Al Jean recently revealed that the FOX animated series had approached the three Australian actors to voice a character for the series – but they all declined.
Indeed, they had already written a part for the Hemsworth brothers, making it more of a kick in the teeth.
“We tried to get the Hemsworth brothers but they passed,” he told News Corp. “We wrote a part for them, but they said no.”
“We also asked Hugh Jackman and he passed as well, so we tried.”
