Untitled entries[edit]

that picture is seriously MESSED UP. --86.135.217.213 07:23, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Is it worth mentioning here that Dan also (presumably) appeared as himself on the most recent episode of The Simpsons? DJ Clayworth 20:43, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Dan also played in the movie Plump Fiction.

Personal Life: The portion of the article stating that Dan is a teetotaler had given me the impression that he has always abstained from alcohol until I watched this clip from the British Comedy awards show in 2005 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH4SSwFxPQY&feature=player_embedded) where he quite admits that he's been drinking. Now, the article cited that reports he abstains from alcohol is current as of 2008. Perhaps it would be clearer to say something like "he is currently a teetotaler"?

Date of Birth[edit]

Anyone know why we have a different date of birth listed to IMDB? Average Earthman 09:00, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Was Dan born September 10/1958 or October 29/1957 (a new date that has appeared)? Hotwine8 03:45, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Video Games[edit]

Is there a list of Simpsons games for which Dan provided voices for characters? Radjago 12:42, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Right off the bat I can tell you that he did The Simpsons Road Rage and The Simpsons Hit And Run; but I don't have a complete list. Belueberry 01:54, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but I think he also did the voice of a mayor in the game Destroy All Humans!. Could anyone verify this?

Television[edit]

There seems to be confusion in the list of TV shows he has appeared on: why are Futurama and Stargate listed twice? Which of the informations there are actually needed? And it seems to drift from chronological to alphabetical orders; I'm not sure what changes to make though... MickO'Bants 22:35, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

No Photo?[edit]

Why is there no photo of Mr C on his page? Mruss 22:22, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Ditto, there should be a photo of some kind on the page, a Picture in picture shot with a small image of homer at the bottom. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.210.64.214 (talk) 08:41, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Notable Roles[edit]

--208.29.67.33 19:29, 9 July 2007 (UTC)Would the roles I put in the "notable roles" section be kept?

Biography assessment rating comment[edit]

The article may be improved by following the WikiProject Biography 11 easy steps to producing at least a B article. --KenWalker | Talk 03:07, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Voice Change[edit]

What prompted Castellanata to change Homer's voice early in the Simpsons series? I couldn't find any references to this in Wikipedia. The Red Hat of Pat Ferrick t 00:29, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

His Motrher/Wife[edit]

In The most recent episode, it said "Dedicated to *something* Castellaneta" Did his mother/Wife Die? It was an episode focused around Homer's Mother's character (voiced by Glenn Close) Lazylaces (Talk to me 14:08, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Voice Change for Homer Simpson[edit]

Dan Castellaneta claimed that in the early series he couldn't sustain the voice for the recording sessions. So in later seasons he changed his voice and he said he could cover more emotions. Unfortunately I do not have a source for this. Matt groening (talk) 23:04, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Driver?[edit]

It states that he had an uncredited voice over for the Driver video game, but it's not on IMDB. Can this actually be verified? I've heard the answer-machines messages and - in my opinion - they sound nothing like him! --hubare (talk) 16:36, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Cow & Chicken?[edit]

Why was the entry re Cow & Chicken deleted with no explanation/reason? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.79.148.78 (talk) 12:20, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Someone is deleting all mention to cow & chicken on the page. Apparently the excuse is IMDB is not a reputable source (?!), but instead of contributing to changing the source of the reference for something that the editors might deem more "reputable", the fact itself (i.e. the piece of information, which is indubitably genuine) is being systematically removed. Seems to me like there are some dark interests behind this, but I'm not in the mood to enter an edit war, so if someone else wants to pick up on this, be my guest. Currently there is this bit of Castallaneta's career mising from the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.79.148.78 (talk) 14:11, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

It's included here. And no, IMDB is not considered a reliable source because its content is user generated. That's why I have been reverting you, there are no "dark interests". -- Scorpion0422 16:19, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
If it's the reference you have a problem with, then leave the info and change the reference to something you deem more "reputable"! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.79.148.78 (talk) 16:07, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
The burden of proof is not on me. Why should I waste my time trying to source everything other users add? You want to add it, so you source it. -- Scorpion0422 16:44, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I am not homer[edit]

The section describing his comedy album "I am not Homer" could be shortened a great deal as there is a wiki page for the CD and it pretty much verbatim repeats everything said in this page...I'll leave it up to someone more competent to do ;-) 78.86.230.62 (talk) 12:08, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Teetotaler[edit]

Personal Life: The portion of the article stating that Dan is a teetotaler had given me the impression that he has always abstained from alcohol until I watched this clip from the British Comedy awards show in 2005 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH4SSwFxPQY&feature=player_embedded) where he quite admits that he's been drinking. Now, the article cited that reports he abstains from alcohol is current as of 2008. Perhaps it would be clearer to say something like "he is currently a teetotaler"? Harvestgalaxy (talk) 22:26, 9 May 2010 (UTC)harvestgalaxy

I moved this to the bottom of the page; hopefully, it will be more easily noticed here. Perhaps, since the reference doesn't appear to mention "teetotalism" (only that he "doesn't drink"), the way it is written in the article should be rephrased.  Chickenmonkey  22:49, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Ref #46[edit]

This ref links to a page that says nothing of "Yes, Dear" or "The Pursuit of Happiness"...--NYMFan69-86 (talk) 20:16, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Dan Castellaneta's religion.[edit]

Can somone confirm that he is a christian, cause he should not be listed as an American Christian if not. I have never seen a quote confirming his religion, and a google search gave me nothing.

Just curious. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.165.24.141 (talk) 06:51, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Side Show Bob voice[edit]

Kelsey Grammer provides the voice for this character. The article incorrectly states that Castellaneta impersonates Grammer for Side Show Bob. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.182.38.17 (talk) 00:41, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Appearance on Laverne and Shirley[edit]

Dan Castellaneta appeared at least twice on Laverne and Shirley. IMDB missed it as well. He has a full head of hair back then. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.18.238.173 (talk) 04:19, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
