Apu will sling slushies at least until 2014.
Fox has secured a deal that will keep the core cast of “The Simpsons” voicing Homer, Marge, Bart, et al into the show’s 25th season.
Los Angeles Times sources indicate that while each of the six core actors are receiving nearly half a million dollars per episode for the current, 23rd season, they will only receive a quarter million per episode for the 24th and 25th seasons.
The cuts were reportedly made because declining ratings reduced the number of ad dollars the show can garner.
