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?

Season 11 of the animated comedy, which begins Sept. 30 on Fox, also includes guest vocals from Johnny Depp and Kellan Lutz. If you can’t wait until then, the Family Guy gang can be seen live in person at a Comic-Con panel on Saturday.
