- This article is about the character. For the guest star, see Dan Castellaneta.
Dan Castellaneta is an American actor, voice actor, comedian and screenwriter.
When the Simpsons were on a tour of the Fox lot in Hollywood, they saw Dan Castellaneta, the star of The Tracey Ullman Show, there and Homer asked him to tell a joke. Castellaneta warned him not to stick his head out of the tour tram what Homer immediately did, smashing into a statue of Mischa Barton.
Castellaneta was chosen to voice Angry Dad as he was able to mimic Homer. However, he didn't voice Angry Dad again in Angry Dad: The Movie because he ruined his voice screaming after he hadn't got paid for the show.
Castellaneta also worked as a comedian at a club in Chicago where Homer and Mr. Burns were there. They told him and other actors to act a scene featuring "a drunk millionaire at a Starbucks in Siberia".
