Veteran actor Hank Azaria will be starring in the new Fox animated series “Bordertown,” playing main character Bud Buckwald, a politically out-of-touch border patrol agent and father of three. Working with “Family Guy” producers Seth MacFarlane and Mark Hentemann, the show will take satirical look at current cultural changes in the U.S.A.
Hank Azaria is most well-known for the the variety of roles he plays on “The Simpsons,” including Apu, Moe, Comic Book Guy, and many others. Other voice roles by Azaria include Eddie Brock/Venom from the mid 1990s “Spider-man” animated series, Bartok the bat in Don Bluth’s “Anastasia” and Harold Zoid from “Futurama.”
As for live-action roles, he is best known as Gargamel in the recent “Smurfs” movies, but he also played memorable roles in “Mystery Men” and ‘Lovelace.”
“Bordertown” is set to go on air in the spring of 2015 and it will also star Alex Borstein, Missi Pyle, and Efren Ramirez. The creator of the show is Mark Hentemann, writer/producer for “Family Guy,” writer for “Late Show with David Letterman,” and creator of the short-lived MTV cartoon “3 South.”
