Seth MacFarlane (born October, 26, 1973) is an American actor, voice actor, comedian, filmmaker and singer, who is best known as the creator of Family Guy as well as its sister shows, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show. It has been stated on numerous occasions that Family Guy is a rip-off of The Simpsons, but both he and Matt Groening have stated that they are friends and there is no rivalry between the shows, nor have they said Family Guy is a rip-off of The Simpsons. MacFarlane even helped compose the opening for Futurama's fourth movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder. He is also the creator, executive producer and portrays Captain Ed Mercer on The Orville.

He provided his voice in the Season 24 finale “Dangers on a Train” as Ben, a man whom nearly seduces Marge away from Homer. This episode coincidentally aired the same night as the Family Guy Season 11 episode "No Country Club for Old Men", which featured The Simpsons voice actor Hank Azaria as a guest star.

In "The Simpsons Guy", the Griffins travel to Springfield and the families became friends. All of the series's voice actors reprise their roles.
