The MacFarlane clan seems pretty unstoppable. Family Guy is about to enter its 11th season, American Dad its 8th. Both will be premiering their latest seasons on September 30th. Rachael Macfarlane voices multiple characters on both shows, but is primarily for her work as Haley Smith on American Dad. At Comic-Con, we were able to participate in a roundtable interview with MacFarlane. She talked about how she’ll be fulfilling a dream with her tie-in album where she’ll be performing songs in character as Haley (it’ll be released in late September), where the Macfarlanes get their sense of humor, the work process involved in an animated show, and a lot more. Check out the full interview after the jump.
The animated series American Dad is entering its ninth season and appeared at a Comic-Con panel to give the audience a sneak peek. The panel opened with a psychedelic clip show that was half preview and half fan appreciation. Patrick Stewart himself introduced the sequence and some of the flashed clips included the various faces and costumes of Roger (Seth MacFarlane), a suicidal lemur, various attempts by Stan to jump a chasm and a tearful farewell from Roger. The panel featured MacFarlane, Wendy Schaal, Scott Grimes, Rachael MacFarlane, Dee Bradley Baker, Mike Barker, Jordan Blume and Matt Weitzman.
