Daniel Louis "Dan" Castellaneta (born October 29, 1957) is an award-winning American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and voice actor. He is the voice of Homer Simpson and many recurring characters such as the blue-haired lawyer, Gil Gunderson, Itchy, Barney Gumble, Krusty the Clown, Kodos, Sideshow Mel, Hans Moleman, Abraham Simpson, squeaky-voiced teen, Mayor Quimby, and Groundskeeper Willie. He was also interviewed in The Simpsons: America's First Family, The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special – In 3-D! On Ice!, and The Simpsons: Access All Areas.

Besides a voice actor for the show, he is also a crew member and has written seven episodes with his wife, Deb Lacusta. These episodes are "Days of Wine and D'oh'ses", "Gump Roast", "The Ziff Who Came To Dinner", "Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore", "The Fight Before Christmas", "A Midsummer's Nice Dreams", and "The Ten-Per-Cent Solution". His name was mispronounced by Homer during the credits of "Bart Star" as "Castaneltela".

Castellaneta was among several actors from the series to do voice work for Futurama. He provided the voice of the Robot Devil in all of the character's appearances, save for "A Tale of Two Santas", in which Maurice LaMarche did the voice.

In an interview, Dan Castellaneta says he never talks about The Simpsons at home, but has admitted on a couple of occasions that if his wife is making lunch he may remark "Mmm, sandwiches!", like Homer.

Dan Castellaneta has got a knack for music. He has composed and/or written three songs for The Simpsons, "They'll Never Stop the Simpsons", "Dancing Workers Song", and "The Gay Song". He also released one Simpsons-related I Am Not Homer. Dan Castellaneta also did all the singing when Homer had become an opera singer, which is uncommon as professional singers will often "step in" to sing for animated characters. Guest Plácido Domingo had commented that Dan Castellaneta's opera singing had been remarkable.
