Happy Birthday Hank Azaria!

My top 10 favourite roles from him are:

1.) Moe Szyslak (The Simpsons)
2.) Apu Nahasapeemapetilon (The Simpsons)
3.) Chief Clancy Wiggum (The Simpsons)
4.) Professor Frink (The Simpsons)
5.) Comic Book Guy/Jeff Albertson (The Simpsons)
6.) Dr. Nick Riviera (The Simpsons)
7.) Carl Carlson (The Simpsons)
8.) Cletus Spuckler (The Simpsons)
9.) Superintendant Chalmers (The Simpsons)
10.) Snake Jailbird (The Simpsons)

Makes me a little sad I couldn't have put all of his Simpsons roles in a top 10 list but I guess this also shows just how much versatility he has in this one series.

Worst. Comment. Ever. Happy Birthday, Hank Azaria! His many roles on The Simpsons are varying levels of enjoyable to this day, and also the man's performance as Gargamel in those live-action Smurfs films is very good; I'd even call that an amusing mix of chewing the scenery and Ham and Cheese.

I'll say that Hank Azaria is a great voice actor. I liked his roles in the Simpsons and I dare say he's pretty good as Gargamel, especially in the live-action Smurfs movies. Yeah, I said it!

Happy Birthday Hank Azaria!

One of the most versatile VA's I've ever seen and is yet just as known for his live-action roles too. Seriously I can't believe that Hank is the man behind the voices of Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, Dr. Nick, Professor Frink, Carl, Snake, Cletus, Sea Captain McCallister, Superintendant Chalmers, Kirk Van Houten, Lou, Bumblebee Man, Luigi, Old Jewish Man, Duffman, Disco Stu, Drederick Tatum, Dr. Foster and Frank Grimes. Seriously that's incredible and he's also a pretty good voice for Venom and as bad as The Smurfs movies are...he is actually a good fit for Gargamel all things considered.

Funny enough I was watching a bit of The Birdcage last night, and he was hilarious in that, his character Agador Spartacus is basically his Simpsons character Julio if he was a maid.

anyways Happy Birthday Hank Azaria, He's hilarious in so many shows and movies and is one heck of a voice actor!

Happy birthday, Hank.

He really is a versatile actor, as the Simpson show proves. Moe Szylack is my most favourite role from him.

Same, Hank Azaria cracks me up as Moe:

"Moe, Moe, Moe! How do ya like me, how do ya like me! Moe, Moe, Moe! Why don't you like me, nobody likes me!"

@WrightWay I enjoy playing as him in the Road Rage game.
