LOOK BART IN ANGER.

Byline: By JULIAN BROUWER in New York

FOUL-mouthed funny man Denis Leary is to become a Simpsons character.

Leary - whose dad John and mum Nora were born in Ireland - has a reputation for having a short temper.

And he will send himself up in the cult cartoon by taking a leaf out of actor Russell Crowe's book by flinging a telephone into a lake during a celebrity golf tournament.

"Denis has been desperate to get on the Simpsons for years," says an insider.

"He loved the episode in which his Hollywood friend James Woods made fun of himself and wants to do the same sort of thing. He wants to make himself look like an egotistical b*stard!"

He may want to paint himself as a bad guy on the Simpsons but in real life Leary is anything but.

To date, he has raised millions for the bereaved families of hero firefighters through The Leary Foundation.
