How to tell if your post has been obituary, TV show
You’re going to want to make sure you’re not obituizing the man who created the sitcom, The Simpsons, and you’re going and saying, “My favorite person died.”
If you’re an Emmy winner or winning an Emmy for a TV show, you may have heard of the late, great Will Ferrell.
He died on Tuesday at the age of 78.
In fact, he was a co-creator of The Simpsons.
He is best known for being the voice of Bart Simpson on the show.
Will Ferrell’s best friend, comedian Bill Murray, told NPR that Ferrell and Murray had a huge rivalry over Ferrell playing the voice, even though Murray is an Emmy-winning actor.
Ferrell was born in California, and he grew up in the Bay Area.
He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in acting.
During the late 1960s, he played the part of Homer Simpson on The Simpsons and later went on to play the role of Marge Simpson on Seinfeld.
He died on Wednesday at the Golden Gate Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles.
