Daniel Radcliffe will voice a vampire caled Edmund in The Simpsons' Twilight spoof

Daniel Radcliffe is replacing Robert Pattinson in Twilight - in Springfield at least.

The Harry Potter star is to voice R-Patz's character Edward Cullen in the latest Halloween episode of The Simpsons themed on the teen vampire stories.

The spoof episode, called Tweenlight, sees Lisa fall in love with a mysterious new student called Edmund, who also happens to be a vampire and his father is Count Dracula.

The pair's romance blossoms, and they leave Springfield for Dracula-la Land - leaving Homer to come to their rescue.

Simpsons producer Al Jean said: "Daniel was very excited to do The Simpsons."

As well as the Twilight spoof, the show will also see Hugh Laurie lend his voice to the show.

He will voice a castaway called Roger, who Marge and Homer rescue while they are on a second honeymoon.

The episode is set to air in the US on November 7.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
