Elizabeth Taylor has lent her voice to some recent episodes of "The Simpsons," and now the movie star is turning to another cartoon for her next role. Taylor has signed on for the role of Fred Flintstone's mother-in-law in the live-action film version of "The Flinstones."

"The part wasn't written with her in mind, but she was always the front-runner," Entertainment Weekly quoted a production source as saying. Taylor, by the way, hasn't acted in a motion picture since 1988's "Young Toscanini," which has never been released.Joining Liz in the prehistoric burg of Bedrock will be John Goodman as Fred, Elizabeth Perkins as his wife Wilma, and Rick Moranis and Rosie O'Donnell as next-door neighbors Barney and Betty Rubble.
