Neil GaimanMany of Neil Gaiman's fictional creations have been brought to the small and big screens in recent years and now he's set to join them. He's been immortalized with a guest spot on 'The Simpsons' as ... himself.

As reported by the BBC, the 'Sandman' and 'Stardust' author announced via Twitter that he "went to the Marge Simpson Studios," where he "recorded my part as 'Neil Gaiman', a British author."

Gaiman's character in the episode -- entitled 'The Book Job' -- would "probably be yellow", he continued. "Probably this is all I shall be remembered for," he joked.

Gaiman's appearance follows earlier 'Simpsons' contributions from fellow comic book authors Alan Moore, Daniel Clowes and Art Spiegelman. They had cameo appearances in a 2007 episode, entitled 'Husbands and Knives.'

We might be seeing more of Gaiman's mind at work on TV in 2011. Warner Bros is in the process of bringing Gaiman's 'Sandman' comic book series to TV, possibly with 'Supernatural' creator Eric Kripke at the helm. And Gaiman has also written an episode for the upcoming series of 'Doctor Who,' to be broadcast later this year.
