Daniel Radcliffe as Dracula's son on 'The Simpsons' in 2010

Self-proclaimed ‘The Simpsons’ fan and former ‘Harry Potter’ star, Daniel Radcliffe, has been confirmed to appear on the 25th season of Fox’s hit animated comedy.

Radcliffe previously lent his voice to ‘The Simpsons’ in 2010 for the ‘Treehouse of Horror XXI’ episode, in which he played the vampire son of Dracula.

He is such a fan of the show, however, that he’s been invited to return.

“I had the pleasure of meeting him after one of his performances in 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', and he is one of the people who actually listens to 'Simpsons' DVD commentaries,” Al Jean, ‘The Simpsons’ executive producer tells Entertainment Weekly.

“Also, he was terrific,” he adds.

Radcliffe will return as Diggs, a weird older boy that Bart encounters. Diggs has a passion for falconry and is described by Jean as “a combination of Holden Caulfield, Finny from ‘A Separate Peace’ and the kids in ‘Lord of the Flies’- only a little more screwed up.”

Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, Eva Longoria, and Elisabeth Moss are also confirmed for ‘The Simpsons’ 25th season.
