For the record: This version corrects the list of characters played by Hank Azaria on "The Simpsons."
It's a far cry from Springfield, but comedic actor and "Simpsons" voice artist Hank Azaria recently purchased a home in Bel-Air for $10 million.
The two-story view home, built in 1932, has four fireplaces, a dance studio, an art studio, a den and a library. The living room opens out onto a backyard patio, a spacious lawn, a gazebo with an additional outdoor fireplace and a swimming pool. Public records show the house previously sold in 2004 for $6.25 million.
Azaria, 45, plays the villainous Pharaoh Kahmunrah (as well as the statues of Abe Lincoln and Rodin's "The Thinker") in the 20th Century Fox comedy-adventure sequel "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian." He will appear as Abraham in the June release biblical satire "Year One," starring Jack Black. On television, he portrayed the midlife crisis-facing psychiatrist Craig Huffstodt on Showtime's "Huff" (2004-06).
The Emmy-winning Azaria has voiced a score of characters on "The Simpsons" since the show started in 1989, including regulars Moe Szyslak the bartender, Chief Clancy Wiggum, Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and Comic Book Guy, among others.
