Harry Shearer of The Simpsons is practically a modern day Mel Blanc - the actor who voiced almost all of the Looney Tunes character for decades. Shearer - who turns 73 today - doesn't read lines for every resident of Springfield, but he does portray an astounding number of characters on the longest running American sitcom. In case you missed The Simpsons marathon this year...
Here's the complete list of his regular and recurring characters.
1. Ned Flanders
Funnily enough, Shearer doesn't portray any of the Simpsons' immediate family. But he does voice their dorky (yet allegedly sexy) neighbor-eeno Ned Flanders.
2. Charles Montgomery Burns
Springfield's maniacal nuclear tycoon.
3. Waylon Smithers
Mr. Burns' assistant and unrequited lover. This means conversations between the two of them are really just Shearer talking to himself.
