The Simpsons Bring In Ray Liotta To Explore Moe’s Origins.

For an upcoming Season 29 episode of The Simpsons, it appears we’ll finally be meeting Moe’s Dad, Morty Szyslak. Given this is a pretty huge deal in the context of The Simpsons’ universe, they needed someone big to fill the part, and Ray Liotta (Field Of Dreams, Goodfellas, Hannibal) is the man for the job.

A first look at Moe Szyslak’s father, Morty.

Morty Szyslack is being described as a more cunning and evil counterpart to Moe’s somewhat odd, somewhat clumsy self. However, someone with similar DNA to Moe but evil? Doesn’t exactly sound like the greatest mix. As reported by EW, Liotta will star as Moe’s father in, as Matt Groening describes it “A Shakespearean family drama, set against the backdrop of a fading mattress store empire.” which will also star Debi Mazar (Goodfellas, Batman Forever, Empire Records) as the voice of Moe’s sister, Minnie.

The episode will air in April.
