If it wasn't enough of a thrill to attend the Simpsons cast script reading at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival, Kelly and I (and Sydney, Animation Connection's youngest Simpsons fan) were lucky enough to be invited backstage to meet Matt Groening, Dan Castellaneta, Hank Azaria, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith and the rest of the cast. Thanks to Carmella and all our pals at Fox for arranging this unforgettable experience!
I can tell you first hand that Matt and the cast are really terrific people. Here they are, making gazillions of dollars doing a show watched by millions, and they still care enough about the fans to come all the way to Montreal and put on a show for a few thousand Simpsons nuts. And to cap it all off, an hour after the show ended Matt Groening was standing outside the back entrance of the theater signing autographs and talking to fans!
