Entertainment Weekly announced that Daniel Radcliffe will be voicing a character named Diggs who befriends Bart on the upcoming season of 'The Simpsons'.

In an episode airing this coming season, Bart will encounter Diggs (Radcliffe), a strange older boy with a passion for falconry, among other things. “Diggs is a combination of Holden Caulfield, Finny from A Separate Peace and the kids in Lord of the Flies — only a little more screwed up,” executive producer Al Jean tells EW.

Radcliffe’s voice first graced the show in 2010’s “Treehouse of Horror XXI”, in which he played the vampire son of Dracula. Why did the producers bring him back? “I had the pleasure of meeting him after one of his performances in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and he is one of the people who actually listens to Simpsons DVD commentaries,” quips Jean.  “Also, he was terrific.”
