Hathaway has already done a “Simpsons” guest spot, playing a girl Bart falls for in an episode scheduled to air April 19. She’s now done a cameo on FOX’s other animated stalwart. Life & Style reported earlier this week that Hathaway, who earned an Oscar nod this year for “Rachel Getting Married,” popped into the FOX lot recently to record her scene, and we were able to get a few details on her appearance.
A network rep says Hathaway will be playing herself on the show, and the story has her presenting an Oscar (to whom, we’re not sure). Given the long production schedule for animated shows, it’s likely that Hathaway’s cameo wouldn’t air until next season.
Hathaway outed herself as a “Family Guy” and “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” fan on the Oscar red carpet — “any animated television series that’s geared toward a 13-year-old boy, I’m into it,” she said, setting countless fanboys’ hearts aflutter.
Her next non-animated role will be in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” She also just signed on to play Judy Garland in the biopic “Get Happy.”
