15 Best ‘Family Guy’ Celebrity Cameos

Tuesday, April 14 by

The Family Guy loves to give a good skewering, especially when the butt of the joke is a celebrity.  The paparazzi prey doesn’t necessarily deserve it because they’re pompous or ignorant – although those types are certainly shown no leniency – but simply because all limelight hogs can afford to be taken down a peg or two.  We here at Screen Junkies salute Family Guy for tackling superstar satire in their trademark no-holds-barred, consequences-be-damned manner by featuring 15 celebrity cameos (real or impersonated) that cut right to the core.  They’ll make you laugh and think, but most importantly they’ll make you say to yourself, “Yeah, that is an over-the-top yet surprisingly accurate depiction of that particular person.”

He gets a call from Bauer telling him that the President has called off the air strikes for some reason, and that he's got to get out of there.

Bauer says he'll get in contact with the President.Madame President admits that Hodges is blackmailing her with the missiles. Bauer explains how Almeida can get inside the bunker and blow up the fuel tanks with C4 he's got in his utility bag. At first she is ardently reluctant. "How long did they give you to live?" she asks Bauer. "They don't know."–"Then there's not much I can do to stop you." She hangs up.Bauer takes that as a indirect order to go ahead with the plan to have Almeida go in, and so he transfers the order to Tony, who has the utmost confidence in himself that he can complete the mission and blow up the missiles and bio-weapons. He holds up one Hodges' goons, and heads down into the fuel tanks.

Monday, April 13 by

According to MTV Movies Blog, Star Trek's Chris Pine has spoken with A-Team movie director Joe Carnahan about the possibility of playing "Howling Mad" Murdock.  "Murdock is my man,” said Pine to MTV.  If it happens, Pine and Carnahan would be reuniting for the first time since Smokin' Aces back in 2006 – Pine's first big role.  He played a Neo Nazi assassin.  Who would be your Dream A-Team to back up Pine'sMurdock?  Here's who we think could be more than serviceable members of this crack commando unit.  If you have a problem.  If no one else can help and you can find them, maybe you can cast these guys:
