sethmacfarlane 290 TV Query: Was that Seth MacFarlane on 'FlashForward'?Question: Was that Seth MacFarlane playing and F.B.I. agent on “FlashForward”? What’s up with that?

Answer: Why, yes, that was Seth MacFarlane, “Family Guy”/”American Dad” mastermind and Hulu spokesman.

A friend of “FlashForward’s co-creator Brannon Braga, MacFarlane was invited to come be a part of the pilot as a lark. But this isn’t the last we’ll see of him. Rather he’ll be “popping in and out” on occasion.

“He’s game to do more,” says producer Jessica Borsiczky Goyer. “And I’m a ridiculous ‘Family Guy’ fan. So I just shake in my boots every time he comes around.

“I love it.”

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
