Dan Castellaneta has one of television’s most recognizable voices. His face is a different matter.
Castellaneta, the voice of Homer Simpson on “The Simpsons,” says he “was never able to develop a persona as an actor.”

The 41-year-old actor is taking his rarely seen face to the stage at the Acme Theater, where he will appear on Wednesday nights through July 28.
The actor will play about 20 characters — such as a ventriloquist’s dummy and a Billie Holiday impersonator — in a 90-minute, one-man show he wrote. It is titled “Where Did Vincent Van Gogh?”
