Dan Castellaneta

Birth Place: Chicago Illinois, United States
Date Of Birth: Oct 29, 1957
Voice Over Language: English

Trivia & Fun Facts:

Is strictly a vegan and doesn't drink alcohol.  

Birth name: Daniel Louis Castellaneta

Practices tai-chi.

At first for the voice of Homer Simpson, Dan tried to imitate Walter Matthau, but he had trouble with certain emotional registers and intonations with the voice, so he slightly changed the present voice of Homer beginning at the beginning of the second season of The Simpsons.

His voice characterization of Krusty the Clown on The Simpsons was based on Chicago television legend Bob Bell who portrayed WGN-TV's Bozo from 1960-1984.

In 2002, his trademark phrase "d'oh" from The Simpsons was considered valid, and added to the Oxford English Dictionary.

Has anyone else besides me seen the pilot episode of Dads, which aired on Fox, last year? Dan Castellaneta was in the beginning of that episode (as a voice over guy of course)

Big Simpsons fan so I love Homer. Also he does a good impression of Robin Williams when voicing the Genie.
