'Family Guy' losing Brian and Stewie?
Imagine The Simpsons without Dan Castellaneta, who provides the voices of Homer, Grampa Simpson and Krusty the Clown. That’s the doomsday scenario that could be in the works for fans of Family Guy. The Hollywood Reporter says Fox is moving forward with fresh episodes of the show without the help of creator Seth MacFarlane, who does the voices of Peter, Brian and Ste wie, among others. The first episode finished without MacFarlane’s blessing is already in Fox’s hands, and is reportedly close to completion. With or without MacFarlane, there’s still about 17 percent of the 1980s that Family Guy hasn’t yet referenced and/or parodied. That’s a month’s worth of shows right there.
