“Family Guy” cast appears on new “Actors Studio”

By Jeff Pfeiffer

A few years ago, Bravo’s Inside the Actors Studio brought on the voice cast of The Simpsons for a very memorable inteactors-studiorview, with each cast member alternating between his or her real identity and animated alter-ego. Things should be similarly entertaining in a new Actors Studio this Monday, September 14, when Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Mike Henry and Seth Green (pictured left to right) talk to host James Lipton as both themselves and their respective Family Guy characters. Sorry, Meg fans (if there are any) — Mila Kunis will not be there. But we can expect to hear from Peter, Brian, Stewie, Lois, Chris and probably Cleveland, since Henry is there (although Cleveland is spinning off into his own series this fall). Henry also talks about the origins of Greased-Up Deaf Guy, and chats as Bruce the performance artist. And hopefully MacFarlane will do a little Quagmire as well.

Here are samples of what to expect. Some good stuff, although the little bit of MacFarlane doing Peter here sounds a bit off to me. And c’mon, Bravo — why are you labeling these videos as The Family Guy?
