"The Simpsons" Dubbers Strikes A New Deal w/ 20th TV

'Simpsons' Voices Earn More D'oh
Four-year pact will pay the actors $400,000+ per episode

The stars of FOX's endlessly running comedy "The Simpsons" have reached a new contract with 20th Century Fox TV.

While heated negotiations between the "Simpsons" voice cast and their home studio seem to be a near-annual event, this latest pact is a four-year agreement that will earn the actors nearly $400,000 per episode.

According to the industry trade papers, the voices will be back to work on Tuesday (June 3) doing a table read for the show's 20th season.

The 20th season is expected to only include 20 rather than the usual 22 episodes, but this latest set of negotiations could hardly be considered acrimonious. Talks in 2004 delayed the start of the following "Simpsons" season and it has been rumored that the 1998 impasse was so tense the studio contemplated hiring alternative vocal stars.

Key cast members Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Julie Kavner (Marge), Nancy Cartwright (Bart), Yeardley Smith (Lisa), Hank Azaria (Moe) and Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns) are all signed on. In addition, Castellaneta, whose job duties have also included writing in recent years, will add a consulting producer title come fall.
