It was recently announced that Tony Award winner, Neil Patrick Harris ('Hedwig and The Angry Inch,' 'Assassins') was cast as the villainous Count Olaf in Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of 'Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.' Now it has been revealed that Patrick Warburton ('Seinfeld,' 'Family Guy,' 'Tick') has been cast as Lemony Snicket himself.
He may be known for his trend-setting animated series Family Guy and his raunchy buddy comedy Ted, but Seth MacFarlane isn't only interested in laughs. Since 2011, MacFarlane has released three albums of American standards from the '50s and '60s, with his latest, No One Ever Tells You, receiving a 2016 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal. And it is for those contributions that Barbara Sinatra will be honoring MacFarlane with the Special Achievement Award for the Performing Arts at the 28th annual Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitational on February 20.
"The Simpsons" mastermind and "Family Guy" crossover co-conspirator Matt Groening is coming to Brooklyn this winter to, hopefully, bestow upon us his infectious smarts.
