Seth MacFarlane

  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.  Seth, the Family Guy TV toon creator,  knew all about grim. Real grim. Not LA grim…  He had  a hangover and his  travel agent told him his Boston-LA plane left at 8.15 am and not 7.45am. He arrived late, missed  American Airlines Flight 11 – which was crashed into the World Trade Centre 15 minutes after takeoff… on September 11, 2001. (Mark Wahlberg also missed the same  flight)
