Every Simpsons' fans worst nightmare just came true -- Harry Shearer ... one of the key voices on the show is leaving after contract talks broke down.
 
According to Shearer ...  co-creator and executive producer James L. Brooks' attorney broke the news that Harry would "not be part of" the show going forward.
 
TMZ broke the story ... Shearer was the last cast member left to sign on for the 2 year extension FOX recently announced. Our sources said the 71-year-old actor had issues with the back end and merchandising parts of his contract, and refused to sign.
 
On Twitter Wednesday night, Shearer said the breakdown was because he wanted "freedom to do other work."
It's a major blow to the longest running show on TV. Shearer voiced neighbor Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner, Mr. Burns, Smithers, Kent Brockman ... and a ton of minor characters. In all, he's given voice to well over 100 citizens in Springfield.

 

 

This could be the strangest two seasons of the Simpsons ever seeing as the rest of the cast and Fox has renewed for 2 more years.

Oh man this bums me out.  At least the family is still there, so it should be okay.

Harry Shearer could come back to "The Simpsons" after all, because we've learned both sides want to make it happen .... but there's still a major hurdle.

Harry said Wednesday night his negotiations with producers had broken down and he would not come back to the show. Producers said they were moving on and finding new people to do Harry's voices.

But James L. Brooks, the exec producer of the show, just tweeted, "Hey, we tried. We're still trying. Harry, no kidding, let's talk."

And we just spoke with sources directly connected with Harry who told us, "It was difficult for him not to come back. He loves all 23 of his characters. If there's a way to work this out and continue to have a career in addition to 'The Simpsons' he would be delighted."

So the door is open, but our sources say Harry and producers are at loggerheads over Harry's ability to do other projects. Our sources say Harry has more restrictive language in his contract than other cast members. They say producers bent a little, allowing him to do other things if they agreed.

We're told Harry and his lawyer, Larry Stein, would not agree to giving producers the right to veto Harry's other projects.

But at least the door is still open.

From TMZ.  Makes me think the whole announcement was a bargaining chip, kind of like Bork showing up at the UFC show.

As part of my final undergrad semester, I did a paper and presentation about 17th century Low Countries art... that's Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

 

I focused on the Netherlands and Belgium. Belgium used to be known as Flanders under a previous regime. Netherlands is abbreviated as NED in int'l sports, because it's Nederlanden (or something) in Dutch.

 

The name Ned Flanders is an awesome reference to a historical setting that few will get.

 

May the man do well in all of his future endeavors :shifty:

I can see why he'd want to branch out, the man can do a hundred voices and would like to try other things. But yeah, it sounds like he was hoping this would cause a fan backlash and they would give him what he wanted or something a lot closer than what they offered. 

 

The Simpson's have also said that if need be they will hire replacements for some of the characters, they specifically named Mr. Burns as a recast. 

 

 

As for Ned Flanders, anybody that has played CK2, EU3/4, etc... should surely know this too!
