Dan Castellaneta, who’s best known as the voice of “The Simpsons” patriarch Homer, shows he has more tricks up his sleeve on “Baby Daddy.”

Castellaneta has booked a guest starring role on the ABC Family comedy, TheWrap has learned.

He’ll play Peter, a Las Vegas magician (who prefers to be called an illusionist), who’s headlining in the showroom of a second-rate hotel on the Strip. Slightly vain, Peter can do amazing tricks onstage, but he’s easily swayed by a pretty face. Enter Bonnie (Melissa Peterman) and a pair of handcuffs and things begin to go awry.

Aside from voicing Homer Simpson for about three decades, Castellaneta has guest-starred on FXX’s “The League,” TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland,” and NBC’s “The Office.” He also previously recurred on ABC Family’s cult hit, “Greek,” as Dr. Milton Hastings.

Catellaneta joins a growing list of Season 4 “Babby Daddy” guest stars, including Reba McEntire, Aisha Dee and Kelly Monaco.

In addition to Peterman, “Baby Daddy” stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry and Chelsea Kane. It was created and is executive produced by Dan Berendsen.
