Hank Azaria

A versatile actor whose voice may be more familiar than his face, Hank Azaria was born April 25, 1964, in Queens, N.Y. He attended Tufts University in Medford, Mass., and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. TV and stage work led to Azaria's film debut in a small role in Pretty Woman (1990).

At about the same time, he began a long association with the TV classic "The Simpsons," providing the voices of Chief Wiggum, Apu, Comic Book Guy, Moe Syzlak, Cletus and other residents of Springfield. His many TV credits include the telefilm Tuesdays with Morrie, opposite Jack Lemmon in his final role.

On the big screen, Azaria has been seen in Celebrity, Mystery Men, Godzilla, America's Sweethearts, The Birdcage, Along Came Polly and Dodgeball. In 2005, Azaria played Sir Lancelot in the Broadway musical "Spamalot," based on the cult film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
