Actors bring 'Simpsons' characters to life

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ever wonder what Bart Simpson would look like in human form?
The long-running animated Fox series "The Simpsons" is about to show you. The series will unveil a live-action opening sequence Sunday, 8 p.m. EST, a Fox spokeswoman announced Thursday. In it, the dysfunctional cartoon family -- Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa and Maggie -- will be seen as they would appear in real life, played by look-alike actors.
"I'm just amazed there are people who want to be known for looking like the Simpsons," said Al Jean, the show's executive producer, in a statement.
A team from British network Sky One created and commissioned the live sequence, which apes the long-running series' memorable opening shots: Bart writing on the chalkboard, Homer pulling the nuclear rod out of his shirt and Maggie and Marge at the supermarket, a Fox spokeswoman said.
"The Simpsons" was recently renewed for two more seasons, its 18th and 19th.
