We KNOW someone's gonna die on "The Simpsons" next season ... and we KNOW Jennifer Tilly is tight with co-creator Sam Simon ... so when we saw her in NY yesterday, it was the perfect opportunity to pry for some inside info.

Tilly wasn't exactly ready to sell out her poker buddy, but she did tell us that the person rumored to be getting the chop is everyone's favorite Kwik-E-mart employee Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.

Apu is definitely a candidate ... according to Executive Producer Al Jean who teased, "the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character."

Vegas is also taking odds on the death ... with Sideshow Bob being the favorite, followed by Penelope Owsley, Krusty and Grandpa Abe.

If Apu does die, it would only be appropriate that he be buried next to the dead horse the show's producers continue to beat.

They think this is gonna keep the show alive? Have Bart come out, he has the voice of a post menopausal woman already, nobody would be surprised, it could make a good episode.

It's not Apu, they just built a Kwik-E-Mart in Universal Studios Florida. They're not going to design a theme park attraction around someone who going to be killed off.
