In the spooky episode, part of animated TV show's annual Halloween 'Treehouse of Horror' series, the 21-year-old actor plays a mysterious youngster called Edmund, a reference to Robert Pattinson's role Edward in Twilight, reported Contactmusic.
Edmund falls in love with Lisa but his vampire ways are said to be foiled when he takes a bite out of Simpsons patriarch Homer and becomes ill from the large amounts of cholesterol in his blood.
The episode is set to air in the US in the coming weeks as part of the Halloween holiday at the end of the month.
Author L.J. Smith is getting richer for one more of her books is adapted into a TV series by The CW. Smith is the author of "The Vampire Diaries" book series and she also wrote the trilogy "Secret Circle" which will soon be seen coming to life.
Like "Vampire Diaries", the book also has female lead character and takes on a supernatural theme. It follows 16-year-old Cassie, who moves from California to live with her mom in New Salem and falls in love with a mysterious boy named Adam. This plot is almost similar to that of Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" where teen Bella moves to Forks, Washington to live with her dad and falls in love with a 104-year-old vampire named Edward.
Premiering during October on Channel 106 within the DSTV bouquet, the sponsorship will see Southern Comfort adverts featured around each gripping episode and extending to consumer competitions.

In the UK, the partnership has proven very successful and we look forward to bringing this cult status mini-series back to South Africa."
Based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries novels by Charlaine Harris, the critically acclaimed True Blood has become a cultural phenomenon. The third season continues with a complex storyline and introduces new characters to the show's mythology.
