Yeah, I dig Seth MacFarlane. I'm an unabashed FAMILY GUY fan (at least the earlier seasons, but you can see the bloom's coming off the rose lately), and I enjoyed TED quite a bit. His work at the Oscars resulted in one of the weirdest awards shows I remember seeing, that's for sure. He seems to be everywhere these days, and there's no rest for the wicked, seems like. He's set to direct his new comedy Western A MILLION WAYS TO DIE and he's bringing together a pretty great cast, including Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, and Giovanni Ribisi.
You can add one Liam Neeson to that cast, according to Hollywood Reporter. In the movie Neeson plays a villainous outlaw, married to Charlize Theron. He has it in for MacFarlane, whose character seems to be falling in love with Theron as well. This won't be Neeson's first go-around with the Western genre - SERAPHIM FALLS is an underrated little gem, and hey, he made a decent redneck in Patrick Swayze's NEXT OF KIN - and I'm curious to see how Seth MacFarlane utilizes him. A MILLION WAYS TO DIE begins shooting in May.
