The Simpsons | Interviews | David Silverman
Perfect guest

Which has been your favourite guest star, and are there any that have got away?

One that I enjoyed, although I didn't work on the show personally myself, was James Woods. He was fantastic, he was hilarious. I think his performance in that inspired Disney to cast him as Hades in the Hercules film.

He was so funny and he really did ad-libbing. You want to get people who hesitate, it's great for animation. The more a voice is hesitating and thinking about it, you can put that in the animation and the animation character feels more real, it doesn't seem like a cartoon, because, hey, it's thinking like a human.

I enjoyed doing the Krusty gets Kancelled cartoon, and that had a lot of great voices, Johnny Carson and Hugh Hefner, a great combination.

Sting was hilarious Actually, I think we couldn't get Bruce Springsteen for that episode, for the parody of We Are The World, [called] We're Sending Our Love Down the Well, but in some ways Sting was a better choice, because he's very active, so plotwise it made more sense. We haven't hooked The Boss yet.
