Who is Gil?
One of the newest major additions to The Simpsons' cast of characters, Gil is one of many losers in Springfield, and has yet to hold a job for more than one episode. He is a parody of Jack Lemmon's character in the movie "Glengarry Glen Ross," which may explain why he looks similar to the character Frank Ormand in 4F08, who was voiced by Mr. Lemmon. Gil's voice is provided by Dan Castellaneta.
