I, for one, welcome our new soundalike overlords
May 14, 2015 3:00 AM   Subscribe

On the heels of renewal through its 28th season, a perennial contract dispute (with a twist) has at long last claimed one of The Simpsons' foundational cast members. Harry Shearer, the versatile artist behind such indelible characters as Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Smithers, Principal Skinner, Kent Brockman, McBain, Dr. Hibbert, Rev. Lovejoy, Dr. Marvin Monroe, Otto-man, Lenny, and dozens of others will be departing the show at the end of the current season. Of course, the show must go on.

How on earth could The Simpsons continue with the loss of the voice of so many characters? To hire enough people to make up for all of them seems like it should dwarf any one actor's pay.

The show stopped being funny* almost twenty years ago. It's over. Just let it be over, damn it.

*Funny and excellent in its unique way. Later episodes had funny moments, but lacked that inimitable wit or any kind of emotional reality.

Well, he says:

For many years now, the cast of “The Simpsons” has been trying to get Fox to agree that, like so many other people who’ve contributed significantly to the show’s success, we be allowed a tiny share of the billions of dollars in profits the show has earned. Fox has consistently refused to even consider the matter. Instead, it’s paid us salaries that, while ridiculous by any normal standard, pale in comparison to what the show’s profit participants have been taking home.

Now, as the show enters its twenty-third season, we are engaged in what will probably be our last contract negotiation with Fox. As you may have heard, the network has taken the position that “The Simpsons” no longer makes enough money and that unless we in the cast accept a 45% pay cut, they are not going to bring the show back for a twenty-fourth season.

Good for Shearer, best of luck to him.

As far as the show, I mean I liked him better in Spinal Tap but whatever.

Not a chance; that's too daring. But it would be a really amazing shake-up that could kick The Simpsons out of a rut.

They'll just find someone new to do the voices. I don't think it'll be that hard. The voices will change a little, but there are a lot of talented voice artists out there that can mimic voices well. And none of those characters have really natural or non-cartoonish voices that are unique to an individual. (Lots of people can do Bugs Bunny because his voice is so affected and not a natural speaking voice. Characters like Otto are the same.) I bet the rest of the cast is a little nervous that Fox is about to learn about whether voice actors are replaceable.

All you Simpsons fanboys (and girls) should read that blog, it's weird and obsessive but insightful.

One thing they point out, in comparing what they call Zombie Simpsons to The Simpsons (i.e., modern to classic), is that in the contemporary episodes, the characters barely ever do things: they mostly walk around scenery, spouting exposition and explanation, until suddenly the episode is over. In The Simpsons, characters do things; they physically interact with their environment, for example, because they need to get another character physically out of the way to reach an object they want, maybe. In Zombie Simpsons, they're just talking heads moving around in a world that has no sense of physicality, and thus they can't inhabit it. They don't have agendas in any given scene that are rooted in place and character, thus they don't have constraints that make their actions consequential, which is a big reason why the show is a pile of puke now.

I think this weird ontological tic was partially brought on by family guy and it shitty progeny, in which characters mostly just stand around gabbing at each other, because anything more complex than that would be incomprehensible for the demographic trifecta of the stupid, the stoned, and the Both.

I was in the....5th grade? When the Simpsons started. I'm 36 now. Yikes. When it does go off the air I'll be more sad for the loss of a cultural touchstone, the creature-comfort of the never-changing aspect of it, WAY more than the actual show itself. I really only ever watched the first 5 or 6 seasons.

I had not heard that bit of trivia before, but a quick trip to Wikipedia confirms it. Not only that, but if his parents had let him continue, he could have been arguably the most iconic character on the show (for years I have referred to two-faced suck-ups as "Eddie Haskell" and even today most people know who I am talking about.) On top of that, he was already experienced as an actor by then, having appeared on the Jack Benny Show and in The Robe. I had no idea his show business roots go back so far!

He recently gave an interview on Marc Maron's podcast that made him seem pretty spry and lively still. He's much younger in health and spirit than his age suggests.

It was a fun interview because Maron didn't shy away from talking about how he's considered such a hard-ass curmudgeon by so many people. Shearer went into a bunch of his celebrity grudges.

My memory from having heard Shearer on some long-form chat show, possibly Howard Stern, is that he's been in similar disputes with Fox almost from the first, and that he agrees with much of the sentiment in this thread: the show died on two legs a long, long time ago, and has been a dud ever since. He was, in line with his reputation—which painquale alluded to above—very easily mistaken for a curmudgeon, and not only about The Simpsons. He may even be one. But a more charitable interpretation of his attitude toward show business, particularly television, is that he's been in it since he was a child, and is tired of the childishness of so many people with power—and of feeling alternately exploited and squashed.

Despite having grown up loving the Simpsons, if you ask me, the most significant artistic contribution the Simpsons have made to world media is that they provide a guaranteed income to Harry Shearer as he pursues his own artistic endeavors. (Even when he's being a pedantic child - as when railing against the initial "so" on Le Show - he's still more entertaining than anything the Simpsons' writers have come up with in more than a decade.)

Once they stop providing that service, the Simpsons and the Fox Network can go jump in the sea as far as I'm concerned. Since I haven't watched them in years, a boycott wouldn't really matter much. But now I'm gonna not watch them on purpose.

In the 90s I was a huge fan of when Shearer read from the LA Times real estate section on Le Show. (Haven't listened in a while, so dunno if he still does it.) He was hammering on inequality and the excesses of wealth way before it was cool. And making it funny in the process.

Yeah, but Bugs not voiced by Mel Blanc is not really the same. It's very much as if Mel Blanc had left Warner Bros (his son Noel voiced some cartoons when Mel was laid up after a car accident, but it was not made public at the time). I mean, Kermit is still around, but I can definitely tell it's no longer Jim Henson.

However, I gave up watching The Simpsons at around season 14, so I guess it's more about the principle of the thing. Harry Shearer invented some of these characters. Then again, Apu was Shearer's creation, which is one of the most problematic racial stereotypes on the show, so...

Yeah, I think it proves the point made when Bill Watterson and Berke Breathed retired their strips. Or when any tv show keeps going on its own momentum, long after the creative fire has gone out. Animation allows for a non-aging cast of characters, but it doesn't prevent the atrophy of creative energy.

Yeah, at this point I'm kind of happy at the thought of any event that might precipitate the end of the show, short of somebody else dying. To be honest I can't even imagine the show without Marcia Wallace. It was such a hugely formative part of my high school/early adult years, but it lost its soul years ago. Even with FXX running hours and hours of the The Simpsons on any given weeknight, the odds of catching more than 1 or 2 pre-1998ish* episodes are still lousy because there are just so many more that have been made since.

*I don't remember exactly when I gave up, but I think it was around then. It was already sliding by the time Phil Hartmann died; I remember his last episode being kind of weak, and feeling sad about that.

Despite (or because of) having the first five magnificent seasons on DVD, I reached that point around season nine. By the time the Simpsons Movie came out, the show's unending streak of episodes was in danger of overshadowing its early brilliance. At this point, the once-vital Simpsons characters feel like pod-person clones, and the show is evidently never going to be put out of its misery, nor the fans out of ours.

But, hey, Rick and Morty are visiting the Simpsons for an upcoming extended couch segment that may or may not be an oblique comment on the status quo, so things aren't all bad.

Al Jean either is attempting to negotiate with Shearer via the press or doing some serious damage control to entice future candidates for his roles. He's just done an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, in which he conspicuously points out, "You know, there's a Simpsons ride at Universal Studios that Harry didn't do. He's not in it. He didn't want the deal that everybody else took. And people love it — and I've never heard anybody say they miss him."

He goes on to say, "I feel we've done everything we can to keep him on this show. We have made it a terrific job that's really well paying. He's won an Emmy for it. He has gotten acclaim worldwide. He can live in another country. He can phone it in and do whatever else he wants."

What apparently doesn't occur to Jean is that maybe a comedy luminary like Shearer doesn't want to be treated as though he's doing a job where he's just phoning it in.

Maybe. I think I know what it is, though. Check out this quote from Al Jean, from Doctor Zed's link above:

We made him an offer and we're once more saying, "Do you want to come back like everybody else and work hard and care about the show? Great."

They want Harry Shearer to come in and do table reads and stuff like that. They want him to stop literally phoning it in. Why the hell should he? He's set for life, and he's getting up there in years. Why in the world should he spend his time working hard on the garbage they're churning out? Really, why?

So, he should say that. But he is making it about the money, as if he needs any more money. I'm all for creative people getting paid what they deserve, but seriously, he's 71. He doesn't need to work again. He can do whatever the fuck he wants without the Simpsons paycheck.

Yeah, I think the fact that he's in a creative industry is a total red herring. The most important thing is he's an important part of a hugely profitable business, and even if he doesn't *need* anymore money, I can totally understand not wanting to take a pay-cut so that more money can go into the pockets of the show's producers. It doesn't seem fair to put him in the position of "well, he's got enough money, why is he being so greedy?" I'd be asking for all I was worth if I were in his position, even if I were never going to recover a cent.
