Family Guy MacFarlane adds his voice to Simpsons gig


LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Seth MacFarlane may already have three hit animated television shows, one hit raunchy comedy movie and the coveted Oscars hosting job for next year, but the comedian is adding another notch on his resume: guest voicing on The Simpsons.

Family Guy creator MacFarlane will appear in the season premiere of the 25th season of The Simpsons in 2013, Fox Television, home to both shows, said on Friday.

MacFarlane will play a married man who pursues matriarch Marge Simpson after the two meet on a website and form a bond over their love of a Downton Abbey-esque show called Upton Rectory, show producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly.

The episode, entitled Dangers On A Train, will air in fall 2013.
