Alongside his television and film work, Castellaneta has appeared in a number of theatrical productions. In 1992, he starred in Deb & Dan’s Show alongside his wife. In 1995, Castellaneta started writing Where Did Vincent van Gogh?, a one man play in which he portrays a dozen different characters, including artist Vincent van Gogh. He first officially performed the play at the ACME Comedy Theatre in Los Angeles in 1999. In 2007, he appeared in The Bicycle Men at King’s Head Theatre in London.

Castellaneta has won several awards for voicing Homer, including four Primetime Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Voice-Over Performance” in 1992 for “Lisa’s Pony”, 1993 for “Mr. Plow”, 2004 for voicing several characters in “Today I Am a Clown”, and 2009 for voicing Homer in “Father Knows Worst”.

Castellaneta first tried using Hispanic voicing, which Simon felt was too clichéd. He then tried a “big dumb Swede”, which was also rejected. For his third try, he used the voice of a grumpy Scotsman, which was deemed appropriate enough and was used in the episode. The voice was based partially on Angus Crock, a kilt-wearing chef from the sketch comedy show Second City Television, who was portrayed by Dave Thomas. Mayor Quimby, who first appeared in “Bart Gets an F”, is a parody of various members of the Kennedy family. The episode script did not call for Quimby to be a parody of them, and Castellaneta improvised the accent. Sideshow Mel’s voice is Castellaneta’s impression of Kelsey Grammer, the voice of Sideshow Bob. Gil is a spoof of actor Jack Lemmon’s portrayal of Shelley Levene in the 1992 film adaptation of the play Glengarry Glen Ross. Show runner Mike Scully thought that Gil would be “a one-shot thing” but “Dan Castellaneta was so funny at the table read doing the character, we kept making up excuses in subsequent episodes to put him in.” The Blue-Haired Lawyer’s voice, as well as his demeanor, is based on lawyer Roy Cohn.

In 1993, Castellaneta was given a special Annie Award, “Outstanding Individual Achievement in the Field of Animation”, for his work as Homer on The Simpsons.
