'Simpsons' actor: Cut my salary to keep show going

NEW YORK (AP) - October 7, 2011

Harry Shearer is one of six actors who provide voices for the animated characters on Fox's Sunday night show. He said Friday that producers turned down his offer.

Twentieth Century Fox Television spokesman Chris Alexander says the company will not comment.

The negotiations are said to threaten the future of the comedy, which entered its 23rd season last month.

Shearer provides the voices for the characters of Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders and others.
