Fox’s Bordertown Casts Hank Azaria


The new animated comedy series from Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane has recently added multiple Emmy Award-winner Hank Azaria to its voice cast. Azaria will be lending his voice to the lead character Bud Buckwald, joining the previously announced list that includes Alex Borstein (Family Guy, Getting On), Missi Pyle (Jennifer Falls, Gone Girl), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), Nicholas Gonzalez (Sleepy Hollow) and guest voice Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite). Azaria is by no means a stranger to animated comedy voice work, as he is a veteran cast member of The Simpsons, having provided voices for the likes of Moe, Apu, and Chief Wiggum.

Bordertown is described as a satirical take on the cultural shifts that are currently affecting America, focusing on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S.-Mexico border. The lead character Bud Buckwald (Azaria) is a married father of three working as a Border Patrol agent who feels a bit threatened by the cultural changes that are occurring in his neighborhood. His frequent foil is his neighbor Ernesto Gonzalez, an ambitious immigrant and a family man himself. Their main conflict derives from the fact that Gonzalez has only been in the country for less than a decade, but is already doing better financially than Bud.
