When it was first announced that Daniel Radcliffe would be spoofing his former Harry Potter pal Robert Pattinson via The Simpsons, we were, naturally, very excited.

And now that Fox is giving us a first look at the actor's toothy transformation, well, the episode can't come soon enough…  

In The Simpsons' annual Treehouse of Horror episode, airing this year on November 7 and titled "Tweenlight," Radcliffe lends his voice to Edmund, a vampire who, much to the dismay of Homer, falls in love with Lisa.

And while it hasn't aired yet, it's probably safe to say that poking fun at Twilight won't be nearly as controversial or dark as last night's extended opening title sequence that was created by noted UK street artist Banksy.

In what is believed to be a dig at reports that the show outsources a large portion of its animation to South Korea, the clip takes us inside a sweatshop where workers are seen producing animation stills and various Simpsons-related merchandise in quite a disturbing fashion.
