Krusty should be played by Artie Lang.
That is all.
 
2013-01-30 07:26:15 PM  

So I followed the trail to the "artist's" website, where he has this to say for himself:


Introducing... an artists impression of what a real-life Hollywood cast of the Simpsons characters would look like.

To coincide with the launch of my website www.bacreates.com/ I have created these characters in photoshop as a fun and entertaining way to get attention for the site launch and the launch of my graphic design business - Brad Anderson Creates.

I have spent a long, long time getting this to where it is today. I have trawled the internet for source images (hope no-one minds me using them). I have agonised over the casting of characters with actors. And now here it is... The Celebrity Simpsons Real-Life Hollywood Cast

Feel free to head over to his blog and let him know how much you appreciate his "agonizing" over this masterwork.

Big Man On Campus: Now we're rebooting shows that have not yet ended?

Or did Simpsons end and I didn't know it?


After reading your post it occurred to me that I haven't seen a new Simpsons episode in, well, forever. I'm not trying to get all hipster on you; I just haven't seen one despite having every episode through the 90s on VHS (watched a dozen times each).

 The last time I saw one was when I got drunk during a late NFL game and I couldn't find the remote. So I watched it in bed, too disabled to move.

 One thing is for certain, though: When the Simpsons do finally end, it's gonna be a big deal. All the old fans will come back for that final huzzah.

robbiex0r: Dumb-Ass-Monkey: WAYLON Smithers

THIS. The bad photoshop, plus stupid casting (Jen Aniston?), and the botchery of some names/details result in perhaps the worst Simpsons based article I've ever seen. And this isn't even an article!
At least it wasn't a slideshow.


Yeah, the casting....so BAD. The Jen Aniston bit was just reprehensibly star-sucking, and this is in an entire world of star-sucking! I mean...Vince Vaughn? The first six were apparently shopped from Entertainment Weekly (or something)...

OK, Bill Macy as Flanders may work (he has the panic!), And Colbert is actually a really good actor, but he doesn't play the toady very well...but as Burns? Only the creepy near-sexual evil of Crispin Hellion Glover. And I mean that in the BEST possible way. Or go the other way and finally get Peter O'Toole that Oscar! ... Get Mel farking Brooks as Krusty. Come on, really? You know you want it. Otto should be played by...who is a low-rent Robert Downey Jr.? Call Lohan's handlers...Hmmm....Milhouse? Me. It's that part I was born to play, baby!

And resist the urge to cast nearly ANY of the voice actors except as bit parts. They have NO on-camera experience, and it'll be fun online to figure out who is who. However, Harry Shearer gets his pick. He knows the characters and will go to any lengths to make them alive.

Now the big guns - as Homer, NOT John Goodman. I didn't see "The Flintstones", and neither did you. Although I love the guy.  I'm stumped. As Lisa, MAYBE that Dakota Fanning, but we'll need lots of forced-perspective and speed to make her short and bug out enough. Can't her parents spawn another one? Oh, they did? We might...just...have...a movie....

OK, our number one - Bart Simpson. Who let McGregor cross my desk? You get out - no, don't clear your desk. Go. NO, YOU WON'T GET YOU USELESS GARBAGE BACK! OK, whew. That was sinus-clearing! Allllright, back to our little, dated, then updated, rotten troublemaker...get me the cattle car from Oklahoma - one of those pathetic "Brigadoon"-loving-asses is gonna be a star!!!

Fano: I realize there are more seasons I haven't watched now than seasons I watched


Yeah. Back in the days the animation may have been crap, but there were well scripted episodes with genuine lols in each one. I think The Simpsons falling off the quality cliff may be linked to Groening doing Futurama. It certainly seems to have been around that time that I would find myself watching The Simpsons, and wondering why.

/Then again, I loved Futurama, but I've not gone out of my way to look up the new ones. TOS had a perfect run with a perfect ending.
//S'pose Groening et al. can make money more easily from retreading old characters rather than coming up with something new.

You and me sound like Simpsons brothers. I also think that the Simpsons quality declined DRAMATICALLY when Futurama came around. It really did feel like Groening took his talent elsewhere. But maybe during that period things changed. Family Guy and Futurama changed my expectations. I started watching Simpsons less and less, and it always seemed like I was catching reruns of the bad ones of the later seasons. I heard that the series started getting good again, I need to fire up the season 12+ DVDs to see when that happens.

Interesting for such a long running show they've continued to go back to the same well - I think there was one season that had Homer and Marge on the verge of divorce for more than half the episodes. Why not a Bumblebee Man or Sea Captain centric episode?

BTW I notice that from season 8 on there is a change in the general storylines. Typically the seasons up to that had an A story and a B story, sometimes a C.  Doing that was brilliance, because when the A story fell flat the B story was often good enough to salvage the episode. But in season 8, they started having episodes like "The Homer They Fall" where it was all A story and very little B story. When an episode is good, that doesn't matter, but when it isn't, there isn't anything to mitigate the stinker. Also, there became a trend to have more celebrities to show up as themselves whether it was interesting or funny or not.

Anyway, I'm sure the series will continue from now until the time at which the show becomes unprofitable.

Oh - I just thought of the fact that South Park managed a truly quick turnaround time that allowed them to make fun of trends AS THEY WERE HAPPENING, making the Simpsons seem dated when they referenced things that had happened a year before. Interesting note from the wiki on "I Am Furious (Yellow)"

The episode has been used as an indicator to the growth of internet companies. In his article "Best Indicator Ever: The Simpsons Foreclosure", Jonathan Hoenig of wrote that the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Loan_Again,_Naturally" title="No Loan Again, Naturally">No Loan Again, Naturally", an episode in which the Simpsons are foreclosed from their house, could have indicated that "the worst of the housing crisis" at the time the article was written, was over. Hoenig based this theory on the fact that shortly after "I Am Furious (Yellow)", which satirizes the dot-com bubble, aired, the dotcom stocks "began a massive rebound from bear-market lows."[23]

Aye. Back in the mists of time we had Danny DeVito and Rodney Dangerfield playing characters, the first episode I really noticed celebrity name-dropping was season 10's "When you Dish Upon a Star", which was wholly centred around Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. And, as I recall, given that I've not seen it in years, a few crappy comedy skits leading in to a pretty stinky "A-plot" only episode.

Anyway, I'm sure the series will continue from now until the time at which the show becomes unprofitable.
Incidentally, how do you feel about Futurama? Like I said in my previous post, I thought TOS ended perfectly. "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" was epic, and ended the series with Fry and Leela's romance resolved.For an example of doing it wrong, see: Frasier. One of the main jokes in it was the unresolved sexual tension between Daphne and Niles. One of the reasons to tune in and watch it was too see what crazy misunderstandings there would be this week. Then, the writers made them hook up, and Frasier continued after that.I guess I'm trying to say I'd prefer artistic integrity over profits for the networks. Leads to better, more interesting viewing./And maybe just restating the idea behind jumping the shark.
