'Family Guy's' Seth MacFarlane Talks About 'It's A Trap!', the 'Return of the Jedi' Spoof

Seth MacFarlaneSeth MacFarlane has a legion of devoted followers, but he takes nothing for granted.

When TV Squad asked MacFarlane a week ago about the success of 'Family Guy: It's A Trap!' (his spoof on 'Return of the Jedi'), which comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD on Dec. 21, he carefully replied, "We don't know [it's a success] yet. It could bomb. You never know."

Yeah, right. Who doesn't want the highly-anticipated movie as a holiday gift or stocking stuffer? (All three 'Family Guy' 'Star Wars' spoofs are now available, too, on either DVD or Blu-Ray as a boxed set -- 'Laugh It Up Fuzzball: Family Guy Three-Pack.')

Seth MeyersSeth Meyers is the latest comedian tasked with skewering the political elite in front of their faces -- er, hosting the White House Correspondents Association dinner.

CNN reports that the 'Saturday Night Live' head writer will take a stab at in-person satire when he emcees the April 30 event, which the president usually attends.

Wanda Sykes, Stephen Colbert and Jay Leno have made headlines for their hosting turns in years past. Meyers is already scheduled to host the 2011 ESPYs.
