    Tom Petty returns to King of the Hill

    Tom Petty will be returning to King of the Hill as the voice of \"Lucky\" in a few upcoming episodes.  These episodes are scheduled to air on the following dates:  March 16, April 20, and May 11, with two additional episodes yet to be scheduled.  Stay tuned to TomPetty.com for the latest information.

    Last September, Tom sat down with Ign.com and talked about his success on King of The Hill and how he got to be involved.  \"They called me and I came down and did a part for them. They liked the character and kept writing him in, and now he\'s been going on three years.\" Petty later went on to say \"I loved the show long before I did it and it was a complete coincidence that I got called, because it was really one of my favorite shows.\" He also said he felt comfortable with his character because \"I know who Lucky is pretty well. Lucky is very philosophical. He\'s a philosophical idiot.\"

    Petty goes on, praising his cast members, saying \"they\'re a fantastic cast.\" The others all laughed when he said \"It\'s intimidating because they\'re real actors,\" because as Pamela Adlon (the voice of Bobby Hill) put it \"he\'s Tom Petty and he comes in and he\'s intimidated by us!\" Added Petty, \"They\'re great people, and they made me feel at home. It\'s a privilege to work with them.\"
