Seth MacFarlane to guest on 'The Simpsons' as... -- EXCLUSIVE

You may now exclaim, “Holy crap! Woo hoo!”: Seth MacFarlane has recorded a guest spot on The Simpsons.

The Family Guy creator and voice actor (not to mention one of EW’s Entertainers of the Year and the host of the upcoming Oscars) will try to romance Marge in an episode that’s slated to air next fall as the season 25 premiere, EW has learned. The two popular animated shows, of course, share a network, a night, an overweight patriarch that falls well shy of role model, and a rivalry as they’ve playfully jabbed each other on screen over the years. “We wanted to come together in a bipartisan way to make Fox Sunday night rock,” sums up Simpsons executive producer Al Jean of the MacFarlane casting. “This was all very fun.” READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy': Johnny Depp revisits Edward Scissorhands -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The jokes can get pretty random on Family Guy (see: any episode), but this week there will be some high-powered star wattage powering one such gag:  Johnny Depp. The film star makes his debut on the animated comedy by voicing one of his most memorable and sharpest characters from the big screen, Edward Scissorhands.

'Family Guy': Stewie's time machine has reversed the flow of time, vomit in 200th episode- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When Fox airs the 200th episode of Family Guy on Sunday, you will not only say, “My, how time has flown!” but also “Oh my god, time is flying backward!” In this landmark installment of the animated Fox comedy, titled “Yug Ylimaf,” Brian screws up Stewie’s time machine and reverses the direction of time. Stewie may never be the same. Actually, he may not even be at all. It’s deep.

Things get truly trippy — and gross — when the Griffins wind up reliving a few iconic Family Guy moments in reverse. Only those with strong stomachs may wish to check out this scene from the episode, which revisits a certain ipecac challenge. For those of you who become queasy at the sight and sound of vomit, cover your eyes, ears and mouth, and proceed directly to the bonus video, which involves a most unfortunate diaper-changing incident. Happy 200th! READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy': The Griffins attempt to scale Mt. Everest in the season premiere -- FIRST LOOK

The Griffins are about to peak — or so they hope. In the season 11 premiere of Family Guy, Peter winds up dragging the family to the Himalayas to climb Mt. Everest after learning that Lois’ old boyfriend, Ross Fishman, was taking his family on the same adventure. (Fishman’s uppity wife, by the way, is voiced by… Elizabeth Banks.) As you can imagine, the journey to the top of the Earth doesn’t exactly go as planned. “It’s rough going,” exec producer Mark Hentemann told EW. “They eat a dead kid. And Meg eats a lot.” There are no acts of cannibalism depicted in the trailer for “Into Fat Air,” which airs Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. on Fox, but this minute-and-half preview does involve drinking at high altitudes, a pukecicle, and talk of tampons, so consider yourself warned.

'Saturday Night Live' host Seth MacFarlane breaks his silence on Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson split -- VIDEO

Between the presidential elections and very important pop-culture developments like this, first-time Saturday Night Live host Seth MacFarlane has a lot of ground to cover when he takes the reins during the season premiere of the sketch comedy series this weekend. But one topic the Ted and Family Guy creator likely won’t touch is the heart-wrenching headline-blazing breakup between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

“Who f**ing cares?” MacFarlane told EW, after we gave him a quick primer on the obsession that is “Robsten,” during rehearsals for SNL. “I still have my house, my cat is still alive. I don’t care what happens.” (Make sure to watch the video below to see his complete hilarious reaction).

'Family Guy': Drew Barrymore, Jessica Biel, Cheryl Tiegs among Brian's exes returning for Valentine's Day episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Warning: Family Guy’s Valentine’s Day episode will be rated ex.

A gaggle of Brian’s past girlfriends will return en masse in this romantic holiday-themed installment, which means you will hear the familiar voices of Drew Barrymore (as Jillian), Jessica Biel (Brooke), Nicole Sullivan (Tina), Cheryl Tiegs (Cheryl Tiegs), Jessica Stroup (Denise), Julie Hagerty (Carol), Kat Foster (Carolyn), and Nana Visitor (Rita). (Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will voice Ida). What, or, should we say, who brings them back into the picture? When our talking canine winds up dateless on Feb. 14, “Stewie gathers scores of Brian’s former girlfriends to get to the bottom of why he’s unsuccessful in love,” exec producer Mark Hentemann tells EW. “The women are not reluctant to point out Brian’s flaws, and have a great time doing so.” READ FULL STORY

Sofia Vergara to guest on 'Family Guy,' 'Cleveland Show' -- EXCLUSIVE

Sofia Vergara is about to be romantically linked to… Peter Griffin? The Modern Family star will cameo as his fantasy love interest in an upcoming episode of Family Guy, EW has learned. In a cutaway gag featuring Peter as a telenovela lothario, Vergara voices his sassy (and, yes, buxom) lover. And that’s not her only role in the episode; she plays a woman selling roses in a restaurant where Quagmire is “wooing” Peter so that Peter will do him a big favor. READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy': Ryan Reynolds to cameo as the original son of God -- EXCLUSIVE

Many people consider Ryan Reynolds to be God’s gift to man, but this season on Family Guy, he’ll be playing a literal version of that — with a twist. For a cameo role in the animated comedy’s Christmas episode, he will lend his voice to someone who might be described as a precursor to Jesus. Or as Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann explains: “He’s God’s previous attempt at an immaculate conception — his first son that didn’t quite work out.” READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy' scoop: Peter breaking bad next season


Family Guy‘s next road trip episode will take Brian and Stewie to….

Las Vegas! At the Fox hit’s Comic-Con panel on Saturday, the team revealed several storylines for the upcoming season. The latest “Road to…” episode will have the duo teleporting to Sin City. Except something goes wrong with the machine and Brian and Stewie get cloned. One pair has the best time possible time in Las Vegas, the other two have the worst possible time. The episode will air as the show’s season finale next May.

Other upcoming plots: The family buys a farm, where Peter becomes a meth dealer. Quagmire accidentally marries a hooker. The Griffins become a Nielsen family, steal a bunch of the measurement company’s monitoring boxes, and Peter thereby influences TV programming to become what he wants it be — destroying it in the process. Also: Stewie and Brian accidentally reverse the direction of time, so they end up having to relive famous Family Guy moments in reverse. Chris gets mad at parents and moves in with pedophile Herbert. Quipped creator Seth MacFarlane: “How far into our 30s do we all need to get before this stops being f–king cute?”

MacFarlane said there’s no more full-episode movie parodies currently planned like the team’s Star Wars spoofs. He also confirmed that his Fox Flintstones animated series project remains “on hold” for the time being. “We don’t know when its going to happen — next year, next 5 years. There’s no exact schedule.”

'Family Guy': Elizabeth Banks to guest on season premiere -- EXCLUSIVE

Elizabeth Banks is climbing her way to the top in the season premiere of Family Guy. EW has learned that the Hunger Games/30 Rock actress will voice the snooty wife of Lois’ ex-boyfriend Ross Fishman, who attempts to scale Mt. Everest with her perfect family. “The Fishmans look down their noses at the Griffins as these slobs,” explains Family Guy exec producer Mark Hentemann. “They’re super successful and they go on the most exotic vacations and they take on the greatest challenges… Peter picks up on his jealousy that he had in season 3 and says, ‘Well, if they’re going to do it, we’re gonna do it — and beat them.'” Place your bets, folks: Who will make it to the summit first — if anyone makes it all?
