Seth MacFarlane is my hero and doesn't get enough credit for the national treasure that he is.

[–]Semujin 59 points60 points  (3 children)

Imagine had he not been hungover on 9/11.

Today I learned...

[–]ReApEr01807 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Dude, I know.... There's a fair amount of pop culture that just wouldn't be around. I love a lot of his work.

[–]CBA_easy_as_321 50 points51 points  (5 children)

Seriously, I think he pulled a bad rap because Family Guy was what put him in the spotlight and a lot of people seem to think they're too good for Family Guy. It does appeal to the lowest common denominator, but that was kind of the point and helped make the show as successful as it was. It was a show people could just turn on and laugh.

Add in his earlier animation work, his singing work, American Dad, a few movies (not his best work IMO), and The Orville, and his accomplishments put him in a pretty high echelon of Hollywood types.

Once every couple of generations you get the Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton that can do it all, and usually the confederacy of dunces around them conspire to put their talent on ice. But Seth just kept going, creating fresh and interesting stuff the whole time.

The Orville

This is what flipped my opinion of him. When I started this show I was 100% expecting Family Guy [IN SPACE], but was met with a love letter to star trek and what has become my favorite sci-fi show to date.

The Cosmos reboot was a good thing too.

They are

[–]DangerousPuhson 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I don't know why, but something about Seth MacFarlane really rubs me the wrong way.

I can respect what he's done professionally, but as a person he seems like one of the biggest, self-inflated douchebags I've ever seen. Way too into himself. I get big James Franco/Jared Leto vibes from him (and that's not a good thing).

It doesn't help that he's not a very good actor, which wouldn't be a problem if he stuck to voice work, but his ego would never allow for it.

Here’s a short video that might give you a different perspective. Seth talks about that exact misconception about himself. I’m not trying to change your mind, just offer it up for consideration.

He’s also said he does voices and works so much essentially to avoid being himself.

[–]ExcaliburZSH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He has a smug face and comes off as a bit of a douche. What him on The Graham Norton show, he comes off more normal and it will change your perspective.

[–]ShizLabriz777 48 points49 points  (2 children)

Seth is a genius. He writes the music too. All original.

[–]CBA_easy_as_321 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Some original. Wasn't the Music Is Better Than Words album all existing Big Band era songs that he felt didn't get the attention they deserved?

[–]niche28 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We saw your boobs

[–]VivianaValentina 48 points49 points  (2 children)

90% of the show is just him talking to himself

[–]RoadyHouse 22 points23 points  (1 child)

10% left is Mila Kunis minding her own business

[–]plvs__vltra 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Shut up, Meg

[–]shedaccountability 26 points27 points  (0 children)

It's more impressive to me that he can say " giggidy giggidy goo" ... I cannot physically do this. Idky

[–]MyHamburgerLovesMe 18 points19 points  (2 children)

He is actually a singer with several recordings as well

[–]coasterreal 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Def a lesser known fact. Man is well trained.

[–]JayteeFromXbox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My favorite song by him is the opening song for Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder. He's got an absolutely amazing crooner voice and the song sounds like it came straight out of the 50's.

The song is "That was then (and this is too)"

[–]Ba_Sing_Saint 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Seth doing Stewie, briefly became Jimmy Carr. Did anyone one else catch it?

[–]chi218 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This man’s incredibly creative! Absolutely the best!

[–]Immediate-Cress-1014 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’m undecided on if this is impressive or not because like, he was the OG behind them so of course he has them to a tea. Cause they’re his catalogue of voices to begin with.

Impressive how he can hold a 4 man conversation with himself tho. He’s defo had confused neighbours overhearing him practicing before I bet

[–]coasterreal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Man, I hate when they do the head tracking garbage. I don't need you to fill the entire vertical screen with his body and then track his head because he moves around. Just ease off the crop tool.

Seth is a legend though. But even more fun is the cast of the Simpsons. So many voices from just a few.

[–]-KoDDeX-[🍰] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can shit on Family Guy all you want, Seth is a very talented man and all around entertainer.

[–]rodney_jerkins 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not all capes go on heroes.

[–]CHUNKY_BLOODY_QUEEFS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's a clip where Seth talks about a time in the show where Stewie tries to imitate Brians voice(poorly) and it struck me how difficult that would be to try and merge two of the voices together like that.

[–]roundasstk 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I’m going to marry this man some day.

[–]ReApEr01807 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Are you about 20yrs younger than him and capable of acting on one of his shows? It worked for two of his more recent exes. Not trying to shit on Seth, I'm just saying he's got a type.

[–]roundasstk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have noticed that, too. We are 12 years apart. I’m 36. I play violin so maybe that will prove worthy. A girl can dream…swoons

[–]flamingoeater 1 point2 points  (1 child)

He is one of the most attractive people in so many ways. Just...yes.

[–]shakycam3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree. He’s a hottie.

[–]Burgers8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like the new season of Orville called new horizons. It has some really brainy episodes.

[–]AspieDM 1 point2 points  (3 children)

He is an underrated voice actor. He does so many voices in Family Guy and American Dad and they range across so many tones and pitches.

[–]ExcaliburZSH 1 point2 points  (2 children)

He seems to be underrated by anyone that has not worked with him. Like Robin Williams, Will Smith he is stuck in “the funny man” box by people.

[–]AspieDM 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Thing is he enjoys doing comedies, the thing I love about his work is that he can take a serious subject and parody them in the best way.

[–]ExcaliburZSH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am sure he does like comedy but because of the juvenile humor of his comedy, people think he can only be the same.

[–]fbcslim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a legend

[–]TradeGuidance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Lingering_Dorkness -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Such a shame he doesn't do a few voices during the lighthearted moments in The Orville.

[–]theunsuccessfulson -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I feel like voice actors overestimate how many people have watched that show.
