The Simpsons: 10 Secondary Characters Voiced By Hank Azaria

17 April 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

The bulk of The Simpsons’ expanded universe is voiced by four people: Hank Azaria, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, and Harry Shearer. Each has their main characters they bring life to every recording session, but each also is asked to provide distinct voices and personalities for another dozen (or several dozen) characters. And no one is asked to do that more than the star of such films as The Birdcage, Mystery Men, and The Smurfs, Hank Azaria.

Hank Azaria is not just the voice of Springfield residents Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Chief Clancy Wiggum, and Moe Syzslak: he is credited with voicing more than 200 Springfieldites since his first appearance as Moe (redubbing the voiceover originally done by former cast member Christopher Collins) in “Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire.” Some of those characters are one-offs, meant to deliver one line and then move on; some were created as one-offs, but were brought »

Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #23: Godzilla (1998)

28 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 7 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Roland Emmerich

Starring: Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno, Maria Pitillo Hank Azaria, Kevin Dunn, Michael Lerner, Harry Shearer, Arabella Field, Vicki Lewis, Doug Savant, Malcolm Danare, Lorry Goldman

Plot: A large lizard, mutated by radioactivity, arrives in New York.

It was only a matter of time. Hollywood itself had never been too fond of the ‘man in suit’ approach to cinematic monsters, but once technology caught up with the genre it was time to unleash Godzilla in the Us. On paper it made sense. A massive dinosaur-like creature destroys New York. With the success of Jurassic Park, surely bigger would easily be better. This was demonstrated in one of the film’s many great teasers as Godzilla »

10 Stars Who Turned Down The Simpsons

28 January 2014 10:01 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Hit animation The Simpsons is best known for its dysfunctional family Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, but it isn’t just these five that make the show as popular as it is today.

Literally hundreds of other characters make up the comedy, from school teachers, bar dwellers, schoolyard bullies and even mob bosses and attempted serial killers.

Voice actors Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer lend words to most of these, but Springfield has also been frequently blessed by celebrity guest appearances throughout its two-decade-long run.

Some of the most famous stars from the world of music, film and television have appeared on The Simpsons over the years, whether in a recurring role afforded to such stars as Phil Hartman, George Takei and Kelsey Grammer, or a one-off.

The likes of Mel Gibson, Ron Howard, Stephen King, J.K Rowling, Bryan Cranston »

Which 'Simpsons' character Won't die this year? Hank Azaria drops a major clue

22 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Fans of The Simpsons are on edge this year, as executive producer Al Jean teased back in October that the axe will fall on a character in the season 26 premiere. The only clues? The character has appeared more than twice on the show and is voiced by an actor who won an Emmy for playing the role (or roles).

While everyone scrambles to place their bets on the identity of the unlucky victim (the latest in a long line of offed characters including Maude Flanders, Fat Tony, and Bleeding Gums Murphy), Hank Azaria dropped a major clue about the Springfield »

The Simpsons: 10 Greatest Deaths (So Far)

19 January 2014 8:16 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

This fall, the Simpsons are to kill off one of their main characters.

Last October, show producer Al Jean revealed the shock plot to bump off a long-serving Springfield resident in Season 26 of the animated comedy.

Like Johnny Tightlips, however, Jean was reticent when asked who may bite the bullet in 2014.

All he would say was that the Simpsons character to die is played by an actor who has won an Emmy for their role, which doesn’t exactly narrow things down considering Dan Castellaneta, who voices Homer, Julie Kavner, who does Marge, Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart, and Yeardley Smith, who lends Lisa her words, all also voice numerous other characters.

Even though the Simpsons maintain the status quo, in that things stay pretty much the same from one episode to the next, this is by no means the first time the writers have elected to kill »
