Henry Albert "Hank" Azaria (April 25, 1964-) is an American actor. Ever since 1990, he has voiced many secondary characters from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', and has done several notable roles that prompt a HeyItsThatGuy response.

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 Kwik-E-Mart clerk Apu Nahasapeemapetilon; the "Sarcastic Middle Aged Clerk" who sounds like Charles Bronson; smug, fat nerd 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; and many more minor instances.

He also voiced Edward Brock/Venom in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' and Bartok the bat in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}''.

On the side of live action appearances, Azaria's has performed in more diverse roles, which include:
* Jay Nichols in ''[[Series/HermansHead Herman's Head]]'', which he considers an OldShame, along with fellow ''Simpsons'' voice actress Yeardley Smith.
* Nat the Dog Walker in MadAboutYou
* Phoebe's scientist boyfriend David in ''Series/{{Friends}}''
* Alan Marciano in ''Film/{{Heat}}''; perhaps best known as the slimeball surprised by Creator/{{Al Pacino}}'s improvised ''[[MemeticMutation "Cause she got a GREAT ASS!"]]'' bit.
* Agador the houseboy in ''Film/TheBirdcage''
* Kahmunrah in ''NightAtTheMuseum Battle At The Smithsonian''
* SimonPegg's JerkJock nemesis Whit in ''RunFatBoyRun''.
* The Blue Rajah in ''Film/MysteryMen''
* Ed Cochran in ''Series/RayDonovan''

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.
