Mark Cuban, Gillian Jacobs to guest on American Dad
Mr. Burns may have blocked the sun on The Simpsons, but Mark Cuban is taking it one step further on American Dad: He’s planning to blow the thing up. The Shark Tank star/Dallas Mavericks owner will lend his voice to the animated Fox comedy, playing an evil genius named Mark Cuban who’s hell-bent on being the No. 1 force in the universe. The only people that can stop him are Stan, Francine, and four sexy flight attendants with a Charlie’s Angels vibe that are played by Gillian Jacobs (Community), Becki Newton (Ugly Betty), Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II), and Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI: Miami).
The episode is slated to air next season. Season 8 of American Dad has featured such guests as Jon Hamm, Mariah Carey, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Jacobs’ Community co-star Alison Brie.
