'''D'OH!!''' All right, let me try again...

'''Daniel Louis Castellaneta''' (born October 29, 1957) is an American film, theatre and television actor, comedian, voice artist and television writer. Noted for his long-running role as Homer Simpson on the animated television series ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', he also [[ManOfAThousandVoices voices many other characters]] on ''The Simpsons'', including Homer's similarly abusive, senile father Abraham "Grampa" Simpson, town drunk Barney Gumble [[note]](who sobered up in Castellaneta's first written episode "Days of Wine and D'oh'ses," then relapsed and was put OutOfFocus as of "I'm Spelling as Fast as I Can")[[/note]], DepravedKidsShowHost Krusty the Clown, angry Scottish school janitor Groundskeeper Willie, the JohnFKennedy-esque Mayor Quimby [[note]](complete with UsefulNotes/{{Boston}} accent, a large political family mired in sexual scandal and general debauchery, and [[ReallyGetsAround chasing skirts]] behind his Jackie O-looking wife's back)[[/note]], unlucky helicopter reporter Arnie Pie, Jeremy Freedman [[note]](formerly named "The Squeaky Voiced Teen"; a teenaged boy who can be seen slaving away at Krusty Burger, the local supermarket, either one of the two town's movie theaters -- The Springfield Googolplex or the Aztec Theater, and Phineas Q. Butterfat's ice cream parlor)[[/note]], Chespirito (the excitable, Spanish-speaking actor in a bumblebee costume who had his own sitcom -- [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome hasn't been seen much after season twelve]], though he did appear as an ancient Mayan on "Treehouse of Horror XXIII"), and ([[YoungerThanTheyLook allegedly]]) elderly IronButtMonkey Hans Moleman.

Castellaneta is also the voice of the titular character in ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'', Megavolt in ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', the Robot Devil from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', The Ventriloquist and Scarface in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' and the second voice of Genie from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', replacing RobinWilliams.

Born in the UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} suburb of Oak Park, Illinois, Castellaneta started taking acting classes at a young age. He would listen to his father's comedy records and do impressions of the artists. After graduating from Northern Illinois University, Castellaneta joined Chicago's Second City in 1983, and performed with the troupe until 1987. He was cast in ''The Tracey Ullman Show'', which debuted in 1987. ''The Tracey Ullman Show'' included a series of animated shorts about a dysfunctional family. Voices were needed for the shorts, so the producers decided to ask Castellaneta to voice Homer. His voice for the character started out as a loose impression of Walter Matthau, but later evolved into a more robust voice. The shorts would eventually be spun off into ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Castellaneta has won four Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for his work on the show as well as an Annie Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in the Field of Animation in 1993. Castellaneta has co-written six episodes of ''The Simpsons'' with his wife Deb Lacusta (season 11's "Days of Wine and D'oh-ses," season thirteen's ClipShow episode "Gump Roast," season fifteen's "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner," season 17's "Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore" and season 22's Christmas vignette episode "The Fight Before Christmas" and "A Midsummer's Nice Dream"), and was credited as a consulting producer between 2009 and 2012.

Castellaneta has also appeared on some live-action TV shows and movies, such as ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' (as a doctor who used Homer's "D'oh!" catchphrase when a surgical procedure went wrong), ''MarriedWithChildren'' (as a gay man who stays with Al after finding out that his husband has been dancing with Al's wife Peg in one episode and a casket salesman in another episode), ''{{Castle}}'' (as Rick Castle's judge friend), ''{{Reba}}'' (as Reba's boss who was fighting with her ex-husband over Barbra Jean), ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' (a local homeless man who steals Marshall's charts), ''ThePursuitOfHappyness'' (as the boss of a stock firm), ''ParksAndRecreation'' (as a public radio host), and ''Film/SpaceJam'' (as a random man at a basketball game).

It should be noted that, unlike his famous character, Homer Simpson (who indulges in doughnuts, pork chops, and beer -- among other things), Dan Castellaneta is actually a vegetarian, [[TheTeetotaler a teetotaler]], and a tai chi enthusiast.
