The voice cast on "The Simpsons" are really getting up there
Harry Shearer is 69, Julie Kavner is 62, Dan Castellaneta and Nancy Cartwright are 55, Hank Azaria and Yeardley Smith are 48. Marcia Wallace, frequent guest star as Mrs. Krabappel, is 70!
You can particularly hear the old lady coming out in Kavner's and Wallace's voices these days. How much longer can this show go on? They've had an amazing run with the original voice cast - would they ever replace one of them?

So? It's their life's work and has made them rich and comfortable.

They didn't replace Phil Hartman. All the characters he did were retired.

Internet says Marcia Wallace is dead at 70 today. Still unconfirmed, but I wonder how the show will handle it.

The woman who voices Edna died. I guess this was the surprise death they were talking about, since she was so sick. RIP.

Cancel this out of date thing already.
Having said that, let's have some Hank Azaria appreciation

the actors are all replaceable and in fact, a few years ago, during contract negotiations, they were all threatened with being fired because they wanted too much money. As it stands now, the main stars get $350,000 per episode, which doesnt include royalties, dvd's, residuals, etc, etc.

The show remains a pale, soulless money machine for all the talents involved. Most people I know stopped watching about 10-15 years ago. The former show runner admitted how bad the show had gotten in an interview last year.
Hank has a nice beefy butt in that pic. He also has an adult eating disorder and a ton of body issues, resulting from growing up as a fat kid. Oh, and being a closet case. I don't think he's aging that well. But he used to be hot.

You all sound like Comic Book Guy. R.I.P. Carol Kester/Edna Krabapple.

Are the ratings actually still good for this old thing?
