The Simpsons Archive: Dan Castellaneta Interview (1994) (897 words)
Castellaneta's voice is thin and reedy over the phone, and when switches into character mid-sentence, the distinction is startling.
Castellaneta, who graduated from Northern Illinois University and has done radio spots on WXRT, was living in Chicago when he got his break while working for the Second City improvisation troupe.
Castellaneta has only seen Simpsons alum Conan O'Brien on his Late Night show once, but he maintains that O'Brien, who wrote and produced several Simpsons episodes, is a funny guy despite the talk show's lukewarm reviews.
Dan Castellaneta Profile (1525 words)
Castellaneta was a cast member on Ullman's comedy sketch television show when the producers made plans to include short cartoons by Matt Groening about a family called the Simpsons.
Castellaneta landed the role of the father, Homer, but the voice he used in those early short cartoons is barely recognizable as the Homer everyone knows today.
Castellaneta and the other cast members record the voices for each episode before the animation is done, so they have to picture in their minds what the scenes will look like on screen.
