[ # ] Hank Azaria reveals the real voices behind his Simpsons’ characters
April 4th, 2017 under Howard Stern, The Simpsons

For 30 years, Hank Azaria has been doing more voices than anyone can count on The Simpsons and yesterday he revealed where some of them came from on The Howard Stern Show.

He told the Shock Jock that Moe the Bartender came from him doing a bad Al Pacino impression during a play with some gravelly Red the Bartender added in. Chief Wiggum is a “weird Edward G. Robinson” from the Film Noir cop days. Apu is a combination of kids he grew up with from India and the man he knew who worked the 7-Eleven near him in Los Angeles. Snake is someone he knew from college who really enjoyed his drugs. Comic Book Guy also came from his college days, he was his next door neighbor from Freshman year. Finally, Lou the Cop is a bad Sylvester Stallone impression.

Will we get any new voices from him? He said, “I think I have done every voice that I can possibly do. Every sound that I can make as a human being has been used.” Even though he says that, I am sure he will find a way.

The Simpsons celebrates it 30th Anniversary, of the first time they appeared on The Tracey Ullmam Show, later this month
