Kristen Bell Cast as Marge Simpson for Season 33 Musical Episode for ‘The Simpsons‘. During the 2021 Comic-Con@Home panel for The Simpsons it was announced that Kristen Bell has been cast as the singing voice for Marge Simpson in the upcoming musical episode: The Star of the Backstage. Executive Producer Matt Selman shared the news of Bell’s casting and that the episode is “like a Broadway musical of an episode with all original songs.” Many fans were a bit confused by the news, given the fact that we have heard Marge Simpson sing previously with her normal voice (provided by Voice Actress Julie Kavner), and Selman hinted that the episode is “different, let’s say.”
“Marge has amazing memories of being the stage manager of her high school musical, Y2K: The Millennium Bug, and decides to restage it with everyone 20 years later for one last show, but when her old high school nemesis comes to town, she realizes that her high school memories aren’t what she thought they were.”
He added, “The only place Marge sang beautifully was in her head, so she has a magical inside singing voice that only we can hear. When she sings, it comes out beautiful, like Kristen Bell.”
