The Simpsons season 32 premiere features Alex Désert as Carl Carlson

After a long history of The Simpsons with white actors portraying characters of color, The Flash’s Alex Désert will portray Homer Simpsons’ longtime colleague Carl Carlson in the season 32 premiere.

While it’s currently unclear whether the role is a guest appearance or a permanent roster change – long-running voice actor Hank Azaria usually plays the character Black – it suggests that The Simpsons is finally responding to complaints made in light of the 2017 documentary , The Problem With Apu, which called on Azaria, among others, to distance themselves from voicing non-white characters.
