Trivia that mentions this person:

    The Simpsons Movie [2007]

    Finding Nemo [2003]
  • Nemo's father Marlin was originally voiced by William H. Macy. According to [?] James B. Stewart's book "DisneyWar", it was after seeing an early cut of the film with Macy's voice that then-Disney CEO [?] Michael Eisner infamously told his board of directors, "This will be a reality check for those guys...It's OK, but nowhere near as good as their previous films. Of course, they think it's great. Trust me, it's not." Director Andrew Stanton recast the role of Marlin with Albert Brooks, and the film went on to get some of Pixar's best reviews ever and become the highest-grossing animated film of all-time.
