The Story Behind James Taylor's Appearance on The Simpsons



One of the best "The Simpsons" episodes is season 5's "Deep Space Homer" when Homer becomes an astronaut and goes on a space mission.

It features a scene stealing cameo by James Taylor including this great piece of dialogue:

" Listen Aldrin I'm not as laid back as people think.  Now here's the deal, I'm gonna play and you're gonna float there and like it."  

The writer of this episode, David Mirkin details working with his hero James Taylor, and worrying that Taylor might not like the script.
