Hank Azaria, "The Simpsons" voice actor, "just born doing" impressions

(CBS News) Actor Hank Azaria is showing his range these days, appearing in the latest "Smurfs" movie as well as "Lovelace," the story of the adult film star best known for the 1972 movie "Deep Throat."

But Azaria - or perhaps his voice - is most well known as a plethora of characters featured on the beloved and long-running iconic animated series "The Simpsons."

Among several recurring and guest characters, Azaria is the voice behind bartender Moe Szyslak, local law enforcer Chief Clancy Wiggum and Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. (Watch him voice those characters in his full interview above.)

Azaria said that, as a kid, he thought everyone had the ability to do impressions.

"I was just born doing it," he said. "I had a tape recorder. I would record myself and crack myself up. I thought everybody could do it. I didn't realize it was a skill you had. I thought everyone could imitate everything."
