'The Simspons' season premiere - 'The Falcon and the D'ohmanKiefer Sutherland lent his voice to 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) as a character reminiscent of his Jack Bauer days. Wayne is the new security guard at the nuclear power plant, but he has flashbacks to a much more dangerous past.

One flashback revealed the special CIA training he received, complete with circus strongmen, ferocious animals, Chucky and Kobe Bryant! But, despite his harrowed past and his resistance to befriending people in Springfield, Homer gets under his skin.

And then Homer needs saving when Wayne's past literally comes to town -- though we're not sure how he found it considering Wayne chose Springfield because it isn't on any maps. It was a fun episode, and a fun character for Sutherland. We loved the Korean animation re-enactment, and we're happy to see Nedna going strong!

Michael Cera'Arrested Development' and 'Superbad' star Michael Cera joins the long and illustrious list of stars who have recorded a guest spot on 'The Simpsons.' And Cera even got to play a potential love interest for Lisa.

'Simpsons' executive producer Al Jean told 'Entertainment Weekly' that Cera provides the voice for Nick, a seemingly gallant boy.

"He starts quoting Hemingway and she says, 'You're not a product of the Springfield public schools, are you?' And he goes, 'No, I come to Springfield for the food and the women.' So he talks a good game."

Sadly for Lisa, first appearances can be deceptive, and she starts to realize that Nick is "less than expected."
