  Doh! Simpsons' cast in wage row
Updated 01 April 2004, 16.55
The Simpsons
The new series of the Simpsons may be delayed if an argument over how much the actors are paid isn't sorted out.

Six of the cast have asked for $360,000 (190,000) per episode, according to film magazine Variety.

Dan Castellaneta, who plays Homer, and the talent behind loads of other voices didn't show up to record two episodes after talks over pay stalled.

The actors say they're simply asking for what they're worth. Fox, who make the show, haven't commented.

The six actors play characters like Lisa, Bart, Marge, Apu, Mr Burns, Smithers and Moe to name just a few.

If they leave it would be very hard to replace their distinctive talents.

This will be the 16th series of the show, and there are rumours that a Simpsons film is on its way.
