In my apparent continuing quest to interview all the great voice actors living today (because they are the most fun, okay?), I now bring you my interview with the talented and Emmy-winning Maurice Lamarche, a.k.a. The Brain, Squit, Kif Kroker, Morbo, Lrrr, several Futurama robots, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dizzy Devil, Yosemite Sam, Mr. Freeze, Victor von Doom, General Var Suthra, Mortimer Mouse, Chief Quimby, and more.
It was a real pleasure to speak with Maurice, who I’ve been listening to in various guises since I was a wee thing (I was a big Inspector Gadget fan as a child; and then with Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Futurama being amongst my other favorite shows through the years, I guess I’ve pretty much been listening to Maurice all my life!). It was also great to see him do many of his excellent voices and impressions both during the interview, »

Murder Police is Dba: dead before arrival.
Fox has killed its new animated comedy before the first airing. The series, about an inept detective and his cop co-workers, was set to star Jane Lynch (Glee), Chi McBride (Pushing Daisies) and Phil Lamarr (Futurama).
The cancellation comes on the heels of other animation-related Fox news: the record-setting renewal (Season 26!) of The Simpsons, a fifth-season order for Bob’s Burgers and American Dad‘s move to TBS next season.
TVGuide.com reports that execs were displeased with early cuts of the show, but may try to shop it to cable networks. »

The folks at "Murder Police" have an important homicide to solve -- their own.
The animated series, originally picked up by Fox for 13 episodes, won't air on the network after all, TV Guide reports. Instead, producer 20th Century Fox TV aims to shop the series around to cable networks.
Insiders tells TV Guide that Fox execs weren't happy with early cuts of the show, resulting in the show losing its spot on the net's 2013-14 schedule. As such, the studio will begin the hunt for a new precinct for the law enforcement-skewering series once more complete episodes are available to screen for the potential buyers.
"Murder Police" is built around an inept detective and his co-workers. Phil Lamarr ("Futurama") voices undercover cop Donel, while Jane Lynch ("Glee") plays Justice, a detective and working mother. Will Sasso ("MadTV"), Chi McBride ("Pushing Daisies"), Pater Atencio ("Key and Peele"), Justina Machado ("Welcome to »
You know what I love about Baltimore Comic Con? It’s all about comics.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love going to cons that also put a lot of focus on media guests. As you can tell if you’ve read my column, I have a great time attending panels about Battlestar Galactica or Warehouse 13, or interviewing the cast of Psych, the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (coming soon!), or the voice actors behind Animaniacs or Futurama. But sometimes, it’s nice to go to a comic con that’s still all about the comics – and that’s Baltimore Comic Con.
At Baltimore Comic Con last weekend, I did one of my favorite things to do at a comic con – which is to simply wander Artists Alley for much of the weekend, looking at everyone’s art and comics offerings, saying hi to some brilliant friends, and meeting some new comics folks. »

Fans of A&E's Western "Longmire," there's some potential good news about a Season 3.
On Thursday (Aug. 29), executive producer John Coveny tweeted the sturdy-rated series was renewed for a Season 3. "Thanks to the 5 million plus weekly fans (live+7). Young and older skewing alike," he writes. "The call just came in: Season 3 for #Longmire is a Go!"
Before you start celebrating, however, it should be noted that the network has yet to confirm the renewal. A Season 3 is likely, thanks to Monday's Season 2 finale and its season high ratings, but let's not put the cart before the horse, as they say.
More TV news and notes:

When I heard about Family Guy’s crossover with The Simpsons, my face made what you might call a grimace. I’m not a huge fan of Family Guy; it makes me laugh, certainly, but I could never get behind its particular brand of humor the way most of the show’s fans have. And The Simpsons are such a classic series in my mind that imagining their world meshing with Family Guy’s was not a pleasant process. Now, what does work in my mind is a crossover between The Simpsons and Futurama, which, and thank God for making this possible, is happening. I feel like this is a decade in the making.
Even though Futurama is coming to an end on Comedy Central – technically its second series finale as it’s been canceled once before by Fox – its seventh season finale won’t be the last time we see Bender, »

Appearing in their annual “last Comic-Con panel ever,” the creative talent behind Futurama once again delighted the audience with their own particular brand of off-center hijinks. Gathering the entire voice cast together for the first time, the team treated fans to a table read of the first act of the series finale, followed by a screening of the fully-finished second act. Unfortunately, the third act will remain behind the veil until the finale airs on September 4th on Comedy Central. Until then, be sure to hit the jump and check out our panel recap as this may very well be the last time we get to see Futurama at the Con (though I’m hoping another network will once again swoop in to rescue the beleaguered comedy series). Head writer David X. Cohen and creator Matt Groening introduce their "guests": John Dimaggio, Phil Lamarr, Lauren Tom, Maurice Lamarche, Tress »

Executive producer Al Jean announced at Comic Con on Saturday that both "The Simpsons" and creator Matt Groening’s other baby "Futurama" will team for an episode of the former to be recorded next month.
The story involves Bender arriving in our present to kill Bart because something Bart is about to do will change the future for the worse.
