Guess who’s coming to visit the Simpsons… Seth MacFarlane!
That’s right! The creator of Family Guy will be guest starring on his rival FOX show The Simpsons next Fall!
The two mega hit shows have playfully jabbed at each other over the years, but now they are coming together sort of.
Although MacFarlane will be on the show, that doesn’t mean Peter, Stewie or Brian will be meeting up the Simpson family.
Instead Seth is playing the role of a man trying to romance Marge after accidentally meeting on an online extramarital affair site.
“We wanted to come together in a bipartisan way to make Fox Sunday night rock,” explains Simpsons executive producer Al Jean. “This was all very fun.”
“We thought we had a great part that he’d be perfect for, and it would be great to have him on our show, so it worked out just right,” says Jean. “There’s been a little rivalry. We’re both humor shows and we make jokes, but it’s always been friendly.”
Seth has already recorded his guest spot, so now it’s just a waiting game.
We’ll have to wait until Fall 2013 for season 25 of The Simpsons… ugh I hate waiting!
