This guy wants to replace Harry Shearer on The Simpsons and his audition tape is perfect

Nailed it.

SIMPSONS FANS AROUND the world recoiled in horror when voice actor Harry Shearer tweeted that he was leaving the show.

He was the man and voice behind some of the show’s most recognisable characters – what would they do without him?

Well, this guy has just thrown his hat in for the job, and he’s not bad at all:

His name is Brock Baker and he’s an actor in LA. He put together a little video showing all the Harry Shearer voices he can perform – and it’s taking the internet by storm.

He put the clip on Youtube yesterday and it’s already racked up over 100,000 views:

It’s an impressive array of Simpsons voices, we’ll grant him that.

He couldn’t pull off Seymour Skinner – and didn’t even try – but we won’t hold that against him.

Sign him up, Simpsons.
