Phil Hartman

You may not know Phil Hartman’s face but you probably know his voice. Hartman starred on “SNL” for eight years before moving on to “NewsRadio” but he also voiced several characters on “The Simpsons,” including Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure. Before production for the fifth season of “NewsRadio” began, Hartman was killed by his wife in a murder-suicide rampage with their two young children in the house. Hartman’s character died of a heart attack on the show and his “Simpsons” characters were retired.
