Ted Cruz Auditions for The Simpsons

Fittingly nails the Mr. Burns and Flanders impressions.

If this whole Oval Office gig doesn’t work out for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), he may consider a career in voice acting.

With the departure of voice actor Harry Shearer from The Simpsons, the self-avowed fanatic of the show teamed up with BuzzFeed to film an audition “for any part” he can get.

“I’ve been told many times, I have a face for radio and a face for animation,” said Cruz in the BuzzFeed clip.

Although his first two impressions — Ned Flanders and Mr. Burns — were (fittingly) spot on, his sub-par Homer and Lisa performances may hurt his case.
