Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will host the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 24, on ABC.
MacFarlane, 38, who is also the co-creator of American Dad! and The Cleveland Show, is no stranger to live performance. In September, he kicked off Saturday Night Live's 38th season by hosting the premiere episode, and he's entertained sold-out audiences at both London's Royal Albert Hall and New York's Carnegie Hall.
