Could Seth MacFarlane Be the Best Thing About ‘Hellboy II’?

Strange as it may be to say it, maybe so! We're big fans of Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and director Guillermo del Toro — not to mention Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Doug Jones, and even Jeffrey Tambor — but the idea of the Family Guy creator playing an upright ectoplasmic German trapped in a pressurized suit cracks us up even thinking about it. And this clip makes MacFarlane sound like the Nazis in Top Secret!, which makes us laugh even more. Early reviews suggest that MacFarlane steals every scene he's in, calling him "brilliant," "hilarious," and "riotous." Who would have thought that the voice of Stewie might turn in the best bit-part performance of the year? We'll have to remember him for next year's Vulture Award.
