15 May 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Here’s the official description for "The Simpsons Guy": Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guest voice Nancy Cartwright) and his old-fashioned pranks; Lisa (guest voice Yeardley Smith) takes Meg (Mila Kunis »

‘The Simpsons’ Meets ‘Family Guy’ In First Crossover Images

12 May 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One first hit our screens back in 1989 while the other, sometimes called a ‘rip-off’, appeared only 10 years later. Hard to believe but The Simpson is 25 this year while Family Guy hits the ripe old age of 15. To celebrate such a milestone, the two shows will be delivering a highly publicised cross-over as both shows appear on the Fox Network in the Us. The episode ‘The Simpsons Guy’ will air in September and will see the Griffin family end up in Springfield and engage in wacky adventures with their counterparts. Marge and Lois will unite, Homer and Peter will bond (James Bond), Stewie and Bart will become friends as will Meg and Lisa. No word yet on the fates of Brian and Chris.

Although still extremely popular, neither show is in its prime and it could be argued that this is another desperate ratings grab. Each show has poured out the gimmicks in recent years, »

Homer goes hard-body in 'Simpsons' Lego episode

2 May 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — Episode No. 550 of Fox's "The Simpsons" was put together Lego brick by brick, in a CGI manner of speaking. Using computer-generated special effects, the town of Springfield and its residents have been reimagined in the style of the famed plastic toys for Sunday's episode, "Brick Like Me" (8 p.m. Edt). It's a tart title — a play on "Black Like Me," the book — for a sweet episode, one that combines CGI and the show's traditional animation to shake up Homer Simpson's world and teach him a lesson about parenting. Homer (voiced by Dan Castellaneta) has morphed from his familiar pudgy self into a real hard-body: a square-shaped, bullet-headed Lego man. He's still yellow, as are wife Marge (Julie Kavner), the kids and the rest of the town's inhabitants, but all easily and painlessly disassembled. Watch a trailer for the episode here: With the box-office hit "The Lego Movie, »

The Simpsons: “Brick Like Me” Review

1 May 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Simpsons will always be one of my favorite TV shows.  I grew up with it in its heyday.  The jokes still hold up (if you're on Twitter, I encourage you to follow @SimpsonsQOTD), and the show has firmly cemented its place in television history not just because of its longevity, but because it had an uncanny knack for timeless satire.  The joke, "To alcohol! The cause of and solution to all of life's problems," will always work, and it needs to because unless you're South Park or resort to shortcuts like Family Guy, animation can't move fast enough to catch up with the present times.   All of that being said, I haven't watched a new episode of The Simpsons in a very long time because I feel the show's quality has dramatically plummeted over the past 15 years.  So what happens when a long-running show meets a long-running toy line like Lego? »

The Simpsons: 10 Secondary Characters Voiced By Harry Shearer

22 April 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The bulk of The Simpsons’ expanded universe is voiced by four people: Hank Azaria, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, and Harry Shearer. This article will focus on the second main-voice actor who does not voice a member of the Simpsons’ household: a founding member of Spın̈al Tap and former cast member on Saturday Night Live, Harry Shearer.

Shearer has been on The Simpsons since the very beginning, voicing neighbor-ino Ned Flanders in the very first episode “Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire.” All told, Shearer voices over 180 characters in Springfield: 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 back time and time again; and some have grown with The Simpsons, both the TV family and the TV show.

These 10 Secondary Simpsons’ Characters Voiced by Harry Shearer are characters who rarely appear for »

Voice cast includes Dan Castellaneta as 'Homer Simpson', Julie Kavner as 'Marge Simpson' and Nancy Cartwright as 'Bart Simpson' and 'Nelson'.

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 »

'Say Anything' Cast: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

13 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You couldn't make "Say Anything" today. Lloyd Dobler would be standing outside Diane Court's house holding up his iPhone... nah, it just wouldn't work.

"Say Anything," which opened 25 years ago this week (on April 14, 1989), was definitely a movie of its time. In addition to that iconic moment where Lloyd uses his boombox to serenade Diane with Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes," it's the movie that made John Cusack into Generation X's favorite romantic leading man, as well as launching Cameron Crowe's directing career. And its countless cameos fill the film with faces that were familiar to audiences a quarter-century ago (blink and you'll miss Chynna Phillips, of Wilson Phillips fame, as Joe's new girlfriend) -- or those that were about to be, like future Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard (he plays a cab driver), Dan Castellaneta (on the eve of fame as the voice of Homer Simpson, he »

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'Anniversaries'

27 February 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Parks and Recreation" coming up just as soon as I want a banana made of spiders... "Parks and Rec" didn't have to open this season with a perfect episode like "London," but it sure helped, given that the previous season had started to show signs of aging. Similarly, we didn't need a great episode our first time out after the departures of Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe — especially since Ann and Chris were pretty marginal before they left — but it felt very reassuring to return from the Olympic hiatus with such a fabulous installment like "Anniversaries." It's not an episode that does anything fancy: no trips to foreign countries, no last-minute wedding ceremonies, not even a Macklin/Snakehole adventure. It's just a half hour where the stories and jokes are firing on all cylinders, and where everything neatly connects to everything else. Leslie is busy with »
