Hank Azaria Acts Out His Favorite Simpsons Character

Hank Azaria, who has worked on The Simpsons for over two decades, has picked his favorite character to perform from the show.

Azaria, who is currently promoting The Smurfs 2, in which he plays the evil wizard, Gargamel, has been using his vocal talent to bring the likes of Moe Syzslak, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Comic Book Guy, and Chief Wiggum to life for over 25 years.

Whilst being interviewed by Yahoo, Azaria was asked, “Is it 150 voices you’ve done on The Simpsons,” to which Azaria responded, “You know it’s something like that, but some of those had one line in one episode, so in reality it’s like 50.”

He was then asked who is favorite character to voice was, which saw Azaria state, in his own inimitable fashion, “I think to perform is Professor Frink.”

Azaria then stated that he holds an affinity to Moe the Bartender too because he was the first character that he ever performed on the show, before he confirmed that they are connected “on almost a weird level, to almost a sick level.”

Azaria isn’t one to pry away when he is asked to demonstrate his vocal efforts from The Simpsons. Recently, he announced the Dodgers starting lineup by doing impressions of Moe, Apu, and Chief Wiggum.

Unfortunately though, despite Azaria’s best efforts back in June the Dodgers still ended up losing to the Atlanta Braves, 8-1.

Azaria also voices the likes of Cletus Spuckler, Carl Carlson, Snake Jailbird, and Duffman too for the Fox comedy.

He is also an accomplished actor who will next be seen in Lovelace, a biopic about the infamous porn star Linda Lovelace, which stars Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, and Juno Temple.

The Smurfs 2 is released on July 31, and alongside Hank Azaria, it also stars Sofia Vergara, Christina Ricci, Anton Yelchin, and Neil Patrick Harris.
