Celebrity Guests and Gut Punches
MacFarlane regularly lards his projects with famous folks, who often play themselves. Adam West, for example, has long voiced the role of ''Mayor Adam West'' on Family Guy, while David Lynch played a very Lynch-esque barkeep on The Cleveland Show (and by ''Lynch-esque'' we mean he looked like the famed director, not that he was a backwards-speaking little person). MacFarlane and his writers also routinely skewer celebrities witness Renee Zellweger's depiction as an anteater in the season 4 Family Guy episode ''Peterotica.'' Sometimes the celebrity appearance and the celebrity abuse come wrapped in the same package, as with James Woods' recurring Family Guy role as the dick-ish ''James Woods.''
