You don’t know everything about Moe. But if you’ll belly up the bar, The Simpsons has a story for you.
The animated Fox comedy will unveil a Szyslak-centric episode later this season, one that will delve into the gruff bartender’s family history. As executive producer Matt Selman hinted earlier this season, “It’s a Shakespearean family drama, set against the backdrop of a fading mattress store empire.”
One family member who had a big impact on Moe was his father, and EW has learned that the show has tapped Ray Liotta to voice the not-so-dear dad. Yes, the Shades of Blue star will play Morty Szyslak, who is described as a more cunning, evil version of Moe.

Liotta, who starred in Goodfellas and Field of Dreams , has been popping up on all sorts of comedies, with such recent guest credits as Great News , Young Sheldon , Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt , and Modern Family .
Moe’s episode — which airs in April — will also feature Debi Mazar as Minnie, Moe’s sister.
The season 29 guest roster also includes Ed Sheeran, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Rachel Bloom, Bill Hader, Shaq, and Norman Lear. Related Articles
