Gordon Brown rejects cameo role on "The Simpsons"

Britain's Gordon Brown has rejected a trip to Springfield – despite his image seems too dour.

The British prime minister said Tuesday he has no plans to follow predecessor Tony Blair in making a cameo appearance on the long-running cartoon series "The Simpsons."

Actor Yeardley Smith, who provides the voice for the show's Lisa Simpson - the gifted sister of delinquent Bart - has said she believed Brown should be invited to appear.

Blair recorded a voiceover for the show in 2003, starring in an episode in which the Simpson family visited Britain. The former prime minister is reputed to have delivered his lines in a single take.

"I think Tony Blair did that, I don't think that is for me," Brown said Wednesday, asked if he would consider a cameo role.
