** [[https://sb2tlopg.wordpress.com/2010/12/16/interview-with-dean-goss/ He nearly became the announcer/sidekick]] for the second season of ''[[Series/LetsMakeADeal The All-New Let's Make A Deal]]'', but [[Series/HighRollers Dean Goss]] got the gig instead. Imagine, in another world, Phil Hartman might've been the host of ''LMAD'' (as Goss was being considered by Monty Hall to be his replacement, only for syndicator Telepictures to cancel it instead, fearing not being able to sell the show without Hall).

'''Phil Hartman''' (September 24, 1948 -- May 28, 1998) was a Canadian-born comedian and actor famous for starring on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' from 1986 to 1994, [[note]]considered by many to be the show's second GoldenAge after fumbling around blindly in utter mediocrity from 1980 with Jean Doumanian's cast to nearly getting canceled in 1985 with LorneMichaels' return featuring a disjointed cast of semi-famous people and bizarre writing from writers who didn't know how to work with the cast on making them funny as a unit[[/note]] for his guest appearances on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' as incompetent attorney Lionel Hutz (who has a law office at the local mall called "I Can't Believe It's a Law Firm") and washed-up B-movie actor Troy [=McClure=], and for starring as Bill [=McNeal=] on the sitcom ''NewsRadio''.

* FamousLastWords: On a technicality, at least. His final movie role before his tragic murder was providing the English voice of [[CatsAreSnarkers Jiji]] for the english dub of Studio Ghibli's ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService''. In the middle of the film, Kiki starts losing contact to hearing Jiji speak to her. The last words that Jiji says before Kiki discovers that she can no longer understand him and the last words of Phil Hartman on film are "Kiki, can you hear me?!"

** This happened a lot with Hartman. He had wanted to re-create his Groundlings character, Chick Hazard, a private eye, both on SNL and on film, but it never got very far.
