Does a surprisingly good Liam Neeson impression.

While I don't care for his more recent work, there's no denying that he's a very talented voice actor. He's played such a wide range of characters. It makes you wish he would do other things beyond his own shows. I was really impressed with his performance as Johann Krauss in Hellboy II!!

Regardless what you may think about the quality and content of the shows that he creates, there's no denying that Seth has a HUGE vocal range. I really wish he had more opprotunities to do VO work outside of his shows.

@TylerMirage I was just wondering; if he did work in Transformers media (other than parodies of course) who do you think he could play?

@HK-47 master Heh heh, you were reading my mind, since a role in Transformers was definitely on my list of "more opportunities" (properly spelt this time).

I'm not sure who he could voice. He has such a great range, but my big fear is that he'd be cast to basically just be a robotic Peter Griffin/Stewie/Brian. If they pulled a "Hellboy II", then that would be golden. I barely recognize Seth there.

I feel like he could tweak his Stan Smith/super heroic and deep voice into a Daran Norris-esque Knockout. His Ted voice would work for pretty much any character who's a quippy smart-alec.

What I'd REALLY like to see is him voice a villain. Play against type, you know?

Maybe he could pull off a TFA Blitzwing since he can do a decent German accent and he has a certain energy.

@TylerMirage I couldn't help but notice that you used the word golden to describe how he was unregonisable in Hellboy II.

@TylerMirage Anyways; I agree with you on your points, I think that Seth's a fantastic voice actor and a pretty funny guy in general.

Personally, I have nothing against Family Guy and I have admittingly enjoyed it from time to time. But I personally prefer to watch it in clips for a quick laugh rather than commit myself to a full episode. I'm a bigger fan of other shows like Futurama, South Park, Rick & Morty, Archer etc.

As for a smart-alec character who Seth could play, perhaps Rattrap. Also, I would like to see him play a villain at some point.

That is exactly how I describe my feelings for Family Guy, too. I can't watch an entire episode. I just can't. But isolated clips are fine.

@TylerMirage I think I heard somewhere that Seth actually wanted to end Family Guy years ago; but since the show was so popular, he didn't want to upset the fans so he continued.

Happy Birthday Seth. Now while I have shyed away from Family Guy & American Dad for a while(just lost interest tbh) he is a great voice actor. I kinda wish he was utilized more outside of his shows that he's currently running right now. He has great range.

Happy Birthday Seth MacFarlene!

I used to really love Family Guy especially at the beginning before it's pre-cancellations, it wasn't the most original show out there but it was at least funny and the characters were at least likeable and had some heart within the crudeness, that's pretty much all gone now.

But if their is one thing that I admire about Seth MacFarlene it's his vocal range....wow I'm amazed he can do so many different sounding characters (even the voice re-uses he does still have a somewhat different tone too) like Peter Griffin, Brian, Stewie, Quagmire, Tom Tucker, Carter Pewterscmidt, Stan Smith, Roger, Ted, Emperor Palpatine and my personal favourite role of his Johann Krauss in Hellboy 2.

I kind of wish he'd move away from creating shows and just become a freelance VA because to me that's where his greatest skill lies.

Say what you will about his shows in general, but you can't deny that his range is incredible. At first glance, you probably wouldn't expect that Peter, Brian, Stewie, and Quagmire all shared the same voice actor.

Apparently this guy and his family ate at the restaurant I work at last saturday. (If you're wondering, the restaurant is 10 Center in Newburyport MA. His parents are from there. I work in the kitchen, so unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to see him)

While he's very well renowned as the creator of shows like Family Guy and American Dad, as well as his writing style, it's amazing how underrated his voiceover skills are. Honestly, based on his work in Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show, I'd say he's one of the best living voice actors as well, and that's saying a lot. His range is just incredible, and he truly becomes his characters, and the little nuances he gives them are hard to beat. I'd like to hear him do more voice work for shows that aren't his own.

He can do it all. He can draw, he can write, he can act, he can sing, he can voice act, he can direct movies, he can host, seriously, what CAN'T this guy do? Probably one of, if not THE best multitalented people ever in entertainment.

@PurpleWarrior13

I think Rachael MacFarlane said in one of the American Dad commentaries that he's not the best driver ;) and he himself says that he's not good at video games XD

but you forgot playing the Piano... i never really heard him play, but Alex Borstein and some other people said that he is a fantastic Piano player^^

Just a bunch of oversensitive wimps. Seriously idk what people were expecting; it's Seth MacFarlane! He's going to have big elaborate musical numbers, make a few sexist/racist jokes, and just be himself. To me he's by far the most entertaining host I've ever seen and I've been watching the Oscars since 2004.

@Nightmare Crusher Most people thought he did an awesome job (including myself). The critics bash EVERY Oscar host. Not even Billy Crystal was safe from it last year.
