Futurama Star John DiMaggio Didn’t Receive Pay Increase to Return as Bender

May 30, 2022

Following the announcement that Futurama would be once again making a comeback, this time on Hulu following Disney’s merger with Fox, it seemed for a little while that well-loved character Bender would be looking for a new voice actor as John DiMaggio was not in the cast list. It then turned out that DiMaggio had initially been in dispute over the way voice actors are not treated the same as on-screen stars, and while it was all resolved in the end, DiMaggio has recently revealed that he didn’t end up being paid more for his return and also how his absence was going to be dealt with if he had not returned.
