Family Guy will continue to add to its list of impressive guest stars in season 14. EW can exclusively reveal that Ashton Kutcher, John Mellencamp, and Ed O’Neill will all appear on the next installment of the animated series.
Kutcher — who is married to Mila Kunis, a.k.a. Meg Griffin — will guest-star as himself in a live-action short. “We wrote him some of the most ridiculous dialogue,” executive producer Steve Callaghan tells EW. “He just couldn’t have been a nicer guy or a better sport about it.”
Mellencamp will also play an animated version of himself and perform an original song in the season premiere. As for Modern Family‘s O’Neill, he’ll voice Joe Swanson’s dad who comes to Quahog for an episode. “[O’Neill]’s a lot of fun to work with and that turned out to be a great episode,” Callaghan says. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we come back to him, too.”
Margaret Cho, Kyle Chandler, Kathryn Hahn, Jeff Garlin and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will also voice characters on the next season of Seth MacFarlane’s hit animated series.
Family Guy premieres Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
