Christopher Collins (born Christopher Lawrence Latta, August 30, 1949 – June 12, 1994), also known as Chris Latta, was an American actor, voice artist, and comedian.


Collins was the original voice of Mr. Burns; he voiced him in "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire", "Homer's Odyssey", and "The Telltale Head". He also voiced the America's Most Armed and Dangerous Presenter in "Some Enchanted Evening". He originally recorded the dialogue for Moe in the same episode, but his lines were redubbed before broadcast by Hank Azaria. He didn't get along with Sam Simon[1] and he left to return to his original comedy career.[2] Collins died in 1994 from a cerebral hemorrhage.

Collins is widely regarded for other animated characters he portrayed, including Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe and Starscream in Transformers. In both of these roles, he was credited as Chris Latta.
