Maya Rudolph, Glenn Howerton set for 'Family Guy'
Family Guy has recruited two familiar TV voices for an upcoming episode, and those voices belong to Maya Rudolph and Glenn Howerton. Rudolph, a veteran of SNL and Up All Night, will assume the role of an avid runner who catches Brian’s eye. To win her over, he pretends to be a fellow jogger. “After Brian experiences the ‘runner’s high’, he becomes a distance running douche, and even signs himself up to run a marathon,” Family Guy executive producer Steve Callaghan tells EW.
Meanwhile, Howerton, star/writer/executive producer of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, voices the publisher of a children’s book that Joe has been toiling on. “After Peter gets a glimpse of Joe’s book, he encourages Joe to try to get it published,” says Callaghan. “And before he knows it, Joe is a famous children’s book author.”
The Rudolph-Howerton episode is tentatively slated to air next fall on Fox.
Other celebrities on the animated comedy’s guest roster this season include Michelle Dockery, Conan O’Brien and Jeff Daniels.
