At the Simpsons panel at Comic-Con, it was revealed that they have a part already written for Dwayne Johnson. He just has to come on board.
"We actually have--I don't know how much we can say here--but there's a story with Lisa and the Rock, but yeah, we don't know where it's going," said writer Carolyn Omine. "We're hoping the Rock will hear us, or if anybody knows the Rock...tell him we want that."
Smith could not visibly hold in her excitement. "I've only been saying this was a good idea in every interview I've done for the past two years!" She mentioned when asked in interviews if there's a guest star she'd love to have on the show, she keeps insisting on Dwayne Johnson.
"Rock if you're out there, we have a great part for you," said writer Matt Selman. Selma even jokingly asked if "he can smell what the show is pitching."
It's interesting to note that while The Simpsons have had guest voices from icons in pop culture to rising stars, in the world of wrestling, there's only been one: former WWE Hall of Famer Bret "Hitman" Hart. Stone Cold is credited in a Zorro movie but doesn't actually appear on the show.
Speaking of pop culture icons, at the beginning of the show, there was an introduction to a fake new streaming service called Simpflix--which might give the implication of something else--but parodied some of this generation's biggest shows like Watchmen, Pen15, and Marvel Mrs. Maisel.
