Apu Will No Longer Be Voiced By Hank Azaria
Hari Kondabolu’s documentary The Problem with Apu examined the Simpsons character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and the character’s impact on stereotypes of South Asians. Hank Azaria, who has performed the voice for over 30 years, says he will no longer be doing the voice of the Kwik-E Mart proprietor. “All we know there is I won’t be doing the voice anymore, unless there’s someway to transition it or something,” Azaria tells Slash Film. Here’s hoping the show doesn’t get rid of Apu altogether. This is an opportunity to re-cast the voice, revamp Apu and do something interesting with the character.
