Seth MacFarlane to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’

Seth-MacFarlane-150

After directing this summer’s sleeper hit Ted (and voicing everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed teddy-bear), Seth MacFarlane will host the 38th season opener of the late night TV show Saturday Night Live on Sept. 15. Fans expect the man behind Fox-TV’s killer primetime toons Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show of bring his brand of grown-up, irreverent humor and some animated spoofs to the comedy show.

Although MacFarlane is also famous for his love for classic tunes—he loves to perform Sinatra-style songs and he has recorded an album of standards—his show will feature Frank Ocean as musical guest. Among the other guest hosts announced for the new season of SNL are Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Premium Rush, Looper) on Sept. 22, Daniel Craig (Skyfall) on Sept. 29. It may be a tough year for the comedy show as major draws Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis and Abby Elliot will not be returning as regulars this season.
