50 TV Moments: #49 - LA Law

49 LA LAW (A real-life Homer Simpson sues for wrongful dismissal)

It was an ingenious piece of TV scripting and casting when Dan Castellaneta, aka the voice of Homer Simpson, appeared as real-life version of the Duff-guzzling power-plant worker in an episode of Steve Biochco's suits and skyscrapers drama LA Law. Sacked from a Simpsons theme park for turning up pissed and throwing up in front of the children, our man visits Arnie Becker claiming wrongful dismissal. Clad in his Homer costume for most of the episode and with Homer's distinctive voice, Castellaneta proceeds to urinate, fall over and generally clomp around like some club footed OAP. Pure Homer.
