Sutherland will play a version of Jack Bauer, the character from his hit series "24," "Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean told TVguide.com.
"It's Jack Bauer now — no longer working," Jean said. "So he goes to Springfield because too many people are trying to kill him. He befriends the Simpsons, but then one of the guys who wants to kill him sees him on YouTube after he foils a robbery at Moe's Tavern."
Other guest voices that will be heard next season include Emmy-winning "Glee" star Jane Lynch, "Coraline" author Neil Gaiman and Academy Award-nominated actor Andy Garcia.
"The Simpsons" airs Sundays at 8 PM ET on Fox.
