In order to say you’ve really “made it” in the world, you should really have a cameo on Fox’s “The Simpsons” on your résumé. Now is looks like CNN’s Anderson Cooper is getting his chance.

“Simpsons” star Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpson) tweeted a photo of herself and Cooper, adding “3 lines never sounded so good.”

TVLine has the scoop on Cooper’s role:

The story finds Lisa befriending a girl who is her match in every way, except one: she’s a conservative Republican. “They end up running against each other in the second-grade election,” explains exec producer Al Jean. “And then we flash to the future where they’re [engaged] in an actual presidential debate — and Anderson is the moderator.”
