Seth McFarlane

  1. Steve Martin, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, 2002.  “A pretty grim experience all around –  longest year and a half of my life.”  Director Joe Dante refusing to say anymore about how his planned tribute to his late friend, toon ikon Chuck Jones, ended up a mess. Then again, when the suits approve Martin over Seth, Tim Allen, William Fichtner, James Gandolfini, David Koechner,  Alan Rickman and Robin Williams, you know you’re in trouble.  MacFarlanbe, the Family Guy toon creator, knew about  grim. Real grim… He’d rnedbooked to fly Boston-LA on American Airlines Flight 11 but his travel agent had  told him that the flight left at 8:15 a.m., not 7:45 a.m. “And I had a hangover from the night before” he said. He turned up late, missed the flight.  The day was  September 11, 2001. The plane crashed into the World Trade Center 15  minutes after take-off. (Mark Wahlberg walso missed the  flight)..
