Assange: Talk Show Host, Homer Simpson’s Neighbor, and Sex Symbol?

Financial woes still plague the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange.

The site continues to ask for donations due to blockades by major credit card companies, such as Visa, Mastercard in addition to Paypal, against Wikileaks.

More recently Assange was ‘scooped’ by his own publishers, Canongate, who released his biographical account of cablegate, unbeknownst to Assange.

Assange claimed that though the publishers and he had agreed to read the final draft for approval, he was never given the final draft of his book and was now forced to read it like everyone else, by buying it off the shelf.

Today The Guardian informs us that Assange is to host 10 half hour talk shows with visionaries and politicians on the Russian channel, Russia Today.

In addition, The Guardian announced that Assange will also voice a character who will be a neighbor to Homer Simpson in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.

Julian Assange appears before seven, as opposed to the regular five, Supreme Court Justices in the UK on February 1st and 2nd to fight his extradition to Sweden to face sexual abuse allegations against two women.

Assange recently revealed that he was the focus of attention of “hundreds” of besotted women who have turned up at his door; Chat show host, cartoon character, visionary, journalist and now sex symbol?
