Graduated from the class of 1975 from Oak Park River Forest High School
At first, for the voice of Homer Simpson, Dan tried to imitate Walter Matthau, but he had trouble with certain emotional registers and intonations with the voice, so he slightly changed the present voice of Homer beginning at the beginning of the second season of "The Simpsons".
His voice characterization of Krusty the Clown on Fox-TV's "The Simpsons" was based on Chicago television legend Bob Bell who portrayed WGN-TV's Bozo from 1960-1984.
"Castellaneta" is the name of a city in Italy
Graduate of Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
In 2002, his trademark phrase "d'oh" from "The Simpsons" was considered valid, and added to the Oxford English Dictionary.
The phrase "d'oh" appears only as "Annoyed Grunt" in Simpsons scripts.
Homer Simpson, voiced by Castellaneta on "The Simpsons" (1989), was ranked #35 in TV Guide's list of the "50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time" [20 June 2004 issue].
Played Danny DeVito's client in The War of the Roses (1989), and his brother on The Simpsons.
Once asked in an interview what "D'oh!" means. He replied that he thought "D'oh!", the trademark line of his "Simpsons" character Homer, was a euphamism for "damn".
According to the producers of The Simpsons, he is so in character when playing Homer Simpson that when he makes a mistake during a line reading it is the type of mistake Homer would make. For example, in the episode "Homer Goes To College," Homer chants "I am so smart! I am so smart! S-M-R-T, I mean S-M-A-R-T!" His saying S-M-R-T was not scripted, improvised or even intended to be a joke, it was just a mistake.
Has two younger sisters named Paula and Gina and two nephews named Calvin and Cary
