Fox announced that Hank Azaria, the voice behind a panoply of Simpsons characters (from Moe to Dr. Nick to Chief Wiggum) will play the lead character in Seth MacFarlane's Bordertown, Bud Buckwald. Bud is your average American dad and Border Patrol agent trying to manage cultural shifts in America, including those represented by his neighbor, the ambitious Ernesto Gonzalez (voiced by Nicholas Gonzalez), who gets ahead by working hard. Azaria joins Alex Borstein (Lois from Family Guy), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), Missi Pyle (currently on Jennifer Falls), and Efren Ramirez (Pedro!).
