THE ORVILLE interviews – Seth MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki, Scott Grimes, Halston Sage & more

Let’s face it, Seth MacFarlane and FOX are just a good fit with each other. The FAMILY GUY creator has had multiple hit shows on the network, and even the ones that weren’t super successful (like THE CLEVELAND SHOW) have developed a cult following in syndication. MacFarlane has also directed movies like A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST, TED and TED 2. His newest effort is a loving if amusing tribute to the classic STAR TREK series, and some of the spinoffs that followed it. THE ORVILLE puts Seth in the captain’s chair, having to work side-by-side with his ex-girlfriend (played by Adrianne Palicki). At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con I had a chance to chat with cast membes Scott Grimes, J. Lee, Halston Sage, Penny Johnson Jerald, Adrianne Palicki, and the one and only Seth MacFarlane. That last one was kind of a bucket list interview for me. I somehow missed out on all the times Seth previously did press at Comic-Con, and now really regret it, so this was a nice treat to finally meet the man. It was also good to see Adrianne again, who I’ve worked with a few times in the past. Check out the interviews, and don’t miss THE ORVILLE on FOX this September.
