'The Simpsons' producers are hoping to sign the 44th U.S. President and the comedian to appear in a future episode.

"" had successfully secured a guest starring spot from former Prime Minister Tony Blair in 2003 but can it nab a favor from Barack Obama? The long-running FOX animated series has eyed the running U.S. President to join the show, providing voice for his cartoon character.

Should Obama agrees to this, then he will be the first president to appear on the show while in office. "We'd love to have Barack on the show," executive producers James L Brooks and Al Jean told The Sun's TV Biz. "No president has agreed to do it yet but we'll keep asking. We're putting all the right signals out."

The producers also want "very funny" British comedian who claimed his fame through "" and being the host for 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. "I would definitely be interested in writing an episode around him," Al said.

Not only that, the execs are crossing fingers for an appearance by ex-U.S. President George W. Bush.
