'''Henry Albert "Hank" Azaria''' (April 25, 1964-) is an American actor. Ever since 1990, he has voiced many secondary characters from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', (the CurtainCall at the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'' credits him for more characters than any of the other actors, with a whopping ''ten'' roles!) and has done several notable roles that prompt a HeyItsThatGuy response.

Much like Creator/DanCastellaneta and Creator/HarryShearer, Azaria voices a lot of male characters that aren't voiced by other voice actors (like Creator/PhilHartman, Karl Weidergott, Chris Edgerly, or [[CrossDressingVoices any of the female voice actors who play boy characters]]) or a celebrity guest star. From ''The Simpsons'' alone, he notably voices: miserable, suicidal, {{Jerkass}} bartender Moe Szyslak; SurferDude career criminal Snake Jailbird; fat, incompetent town cop Chief Clancy Wiggum; Asian (Indian) Kwik-E-Mart clerk Apu Nahasapeemapetilon; the "Sarcastic Middle Aged Clerk" who sounds like Charles Bronson (his real name was said to be Raphael, according to the season 12 episode "Day of the Jackanapes"); smug, fat nerd/Android Dungeon store owner Jeff Albertson (better known as Comic Book Guy); Milhouse's loser father, Kirk van Houten; Duff Beer's macho mascot, Duffman; Homer's TokenBlack friend, Carl Carlson; the [[TheOtherDarrin replacement voice]] for Akira, the Japanese sushi restauranteur and, in season three's "When Flanders Failed," a karate teacher[[note]]GeorgeTakei was originally the voice of Akira on his premiere episode "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish" -- the season two episode where Homer fears he's going to die after eating Japanese blowfish that may not have been cut properly[[/note]] and many more minor instances.

Both in appearance and through his seemingly endless repertoire of exotic accents, he's AmbiguouslyBrown. He is actually an American Sephardic Jew. Also notably provided the TropeNamer quote for IdiotBall.

Jew (Sephardic Jews are the ones who can trace their ancestry from the Iberian peninsula [the peninsula containing Spain and Portugal] to the north part of Africa. Contrast that with Ashkenazi Jews, whose lineage is in Central and Eastern Europe).
