Funny guy Seth MacFarlane, best known as the creator and voice behind “Family Guy,” will host the 2013 Oscars.
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron were “thrilled” to have the Emmy winner aboard for the telecast. "He will be the consummate host, and we are so happy to be working with him.”
In addition to his many animation credits, MacFarlane also made his directorial debut over the summer with “Ted” and hosted the Sept. 15 premiere episode of “Saturday Night Live.”
