[asked how many characters on The Simpsons
(1989) he voices] I think I do about 12 regular characters but I've been able to pad the resume with God, The Devil and Hitler.
Appeared in This Is Spinal Tap
(1984) before being cast on The Simpsons
(1989). In the episode "The Otto Show," Bart and Milhouse go to a Spinal Tap concert. Shearer, as well as Michael McKean
and Christopher Guest
, all reprised their roles. This marked the only time on the show that a cast member reprised a film role for the series and makes Shearer the only regular cast member to have done so.
