Seth MacFarlane Novelist

AMWTDITWbookSeth MacFarlane is an animator, screenwriter, actor, composer, director, producer and a Grammy nominated singer. Now he has added another title to his resume by becoming a novelist. The novel is based off his movie coming out May 30th, and is full of his typical raunchy twisted jokes that are a border-line split between humor and poor taste.

Although there are similarities between the movie and novel, MacFarlane wants to give it a life of its own and raise his credentials as a novelist by releasing it a couple months before the movie. ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ was actually formed from a long going inside joke between MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and another collaborator, Wellesley Wild. They have all been working together for more than a decade and joke about how depressing it must have been to live back the Western Frontier.

The crew partially modeled the movie off of Mel Brook’s ‘Blazing Saddles’ and Woody Allen’s ‘Love and Death’. Another interesting thing is MacFarlane didn’t tell anyone he was writing the book until he finished it. Most of his projects have been a success and some of his projects have been failures, but MacFarlane prides himself on his creative chaos and experimentation. He looks forward to writing another novel.

Seth MacFarlane’s Book ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’ is on sale now at Fox Studio Store.

Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Bordertown’ on FOX

Seth MacFarlane's 'Bordertown' to air on FOX

A Million Ways to Die in the West director, Seth MacFarlane is developing a new animated series. The show will debut next year on Fox. This is good news for fans of Seth’s work, as it will give him more opportunity to make us laugh and enjoy his creative comedy. The show will be called Bordertown and it will be placed in a fictional town in Texas and document the life of a border patrol agent named Bud Buckwald.

Family Guy producer Mark Hentemann created and wrote the series, and will be an executive producer alongside Seth MacFarlane. I expect the show to follow the same format as Family Guy with plenty of random humor that we will all enjoy.

QUAHOG VS. SPRINGFIELD

Marge Simpson Seth MacFarlance

The longstanding Griffin-Simpsons rivalry will come to a head when Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane attempts to steal Marge Simpson away from Homer on The Simpsons 25th season premiere next fall.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the episode, “Dangers on a Train,” finds Marge meeting a man named Ben (MacFarlane) on a website for married people looking to have an affair (she mistakes it for a cupcake-baking site) and the pair hit it off. “We wanted to come together in a bipartisan way to make Fox Sunday night rock,” said The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean of the casting. “This was all very fun… There’s been a little rivalry. We’re both humor shows and we make jokes, but it’s always been friendly.”

HOLY $#!% TED!

It was one of the greatest brawls in movie history. A knock-down, drag-out fight between a man and his teddy bear, in which Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) reaches into the bedside drawer and flings the fleabag-motel Bible at John (Mark Walberg). Though it looks seriously painful for Wahlberg, the scene gets huge laugh, and now VIP Fan Auctions is giving the winning bidder a chance to own the props – the Bible and the foam stunt Bible – that make this piece of cinematic comedy gold!

TED VISITS JIMMY KIMMEL

tedd

Ted, the breakout comedy star of 2012 visited Jimmy Kimmel Live this week to promote the home-video release of his blockbuster film. The superstar bear (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) told the host that he had been fielding other offers – including a role on Game of Thrones (he turned it down because of the dragons) – and that a sequel to Ted is in the works. “We’re basically going to do the same movie, but in Thailand, like The Hangover,” he said. For those of you who have seen Ted (spoiler alert), the bear doesn’t make it through the movie unscathed (see photo above). Perhaps the most poignant point in the film comes as Lori (Mila Kunis) tries desperately to stitch back together her boyfriend’s  (Mark Wahlberg) Thunder Buddy after Ted is literally ripped apart by the demented Donny (Giovanni Ribisi) while scaling the Green Monster at Fenway Park.

The actual screen-used stunt bear (and the sewing kit) featured in the scene (along with a Ted movie poster) is now available to the winning bidder at VIP Fan Auctions – it’s a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a piece of instantly recognizable movie history.

The experience, however, seems to have left Ted a little sensitive.

“The other day I was in a mall, just getting mobbed, and I had to run into a Build-A-Bear just to blend in,” Ted told Kimmel during the appearance.

“Have you ever been in one of those Build-A-Bear places? It’s sick,” Ted added. “Why are you guys Frankensteining bears like Nazi doctors? What kind of species are you that you would do that?”

“That’s human’s for you,” Kimmel said. “You comfort us, and we dismember you.”
