Seth MacFarlane is a native of Kent, Connecticut. He studied animation and design at the Rhode Island School of Design. At 24, he became the youngest showrunner in television history when his animated series “Family Guy” aired on FOX. Currently celebrating its 20th anniversary, “Family Guy” has garnered MacFarlane numerous nominations and four Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Voice-Over Performance” and “Outstanding Music and Lyrics.”

In addition to “Family Guy,” MacFarlane serves as co-creator, executive producer and voice actor on “American Dad!,” which is currently airing its 14th season. He also executive produced the 21st century version of “Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey” for FOX and National Geographic. The show was seen by more than 135 million people worldwide and received 13 Emmy nominations. MacFarlane is currently executive producing the next installment of the series, “Cosmos: Possible Worlds.” MacFarlane recently created, executive produces and stars in the live-action, one-hour space adventure series, “The Orville,” which is set 400 years in the future and follows The U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. The series, which MacFarlane produces under his Fuzzy Door banner, premiered in 2017 to over 14 million viewers across all platforms. The show premiered its second season in December 2018.

MacFarlane made his feature film directorial debut in 2012 with the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy film of all time, TED.  MacFarlane’s star is near the star of his co-star and fellow Walk of Famer Mark Wahlberg.  This buddy comedy starred Wahlberg and MacFarlane as the voice of the lovable foul-mouthed teddy bear.  The film made over $545 million worldwide and was co-written and produced by MacFarlane.

Due to its success and cult following, the highly anticipated sequel, TED 2, was released in 2015. In between both TED films, Universal released MacFarlane's western-comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West”, which he wrote, produced, directed and starred in with an ensemble cast that included Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried and Neil Patrick Harris. Up next for MacFarlane is Universal’s upcoming female ensemble comedy “Fairy Tale Ending” starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer.

As an actor, MacFarlane voiced “Mike,” a small mouse with a big Sinatra-esque voice, in Illumination Entertainment’s 2016 animated musical family comedy “Sing”. He also made an unrecognizable appearance in Steven Soderbergh’s heist film “Logan Lucky,”which was released in August 2017. MacFarlane recently wrapped Showtime’s upcoming eight-episode limited series “The Loudest Voice” about Fox News founder Roger Ailes. He will portray Brian Lewis, Fox News’ former public relations chief. The series, also starring Russell Crowe, Sienna Miller and Annabelle Wallis, is based on Gabriel Sherman’s bestselling book of a similar name, The Loudest Voice in the Room.   The show will premiere on June 30th of this year.

MacFarlane’s debut album of standards “Music is Better Than Words” debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart in 2011 and went on to receive four Grammy nominations, including “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.” His 2014 Christmas set, “Holiday for Swing,” also debuted at No. 1 and was followed by “No One Ever Tells You,” another iTunes chart topper, and “In Full Swing,” his first No.1 Traditional Jazz album, garnering him two more Grammy nominations. MacFarlane is gearing up to release his fifth album “Once In A While,” on April 26. The album is a collection of wistful, pensive songs that deal with longing, lost love and sadness infused with fond recollection and a hint of hope.  

MacFarlane created The Seth MacFarlane Foundation to focus his charitable efforts.  Through his foundation, MacFarlane continues to be an avid supporter of science communication, cancer research, The Human Rights Campaign, Oceana, the People of the American Way, Chrysalis, Perry’s Place and National Public Radio (NPR). Last year, in support of NPR’s mission to create a more informed public and strengthen democracy, MacFarlane made a $2 million donation to NPR and a $500,000 donation to Los Angeles’ NPR membership station, KPCC, the top news distribution for NPR content in Southern California.

Cypress Hill, comprised of B Real, Sen Dog, DJ Muggs, and Eric “Bobo” Correa, were the first Latino-American hip-hop group to have RIAA certified platinum and multi-platinum albums and are widely respected as one of the most important groups in hip-hop history.   

In 1991, their self-titled debut album sold over 2 million copies. With their debut album still at the top of the charts, they became the first rap group to have 2 albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 at the same time when their second album, Black Sunday, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in 1993 and celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.  The album went on to be certified triple platinum and features their hit “Insane in the Brain”, dubbed one of the “100 greatest Hip Hop songs” by VH1.

The Grammy-nominated, group has gone on to sell over 18 million albums worldwide.  Sampled by everyone from JAY-Z and the Black Eyed Peas to A$AP Rocky and Vic Mensa, Cypress Hill paved the way for contemporary artists like Luis Fosi and Cardi B.

The group recently released their ninth studio album, Elephants On Acid. Framed as a rap odyssey, the album takes listeners around the world and through other dimensions while preserving the dynamism for which the group became known.

Even with a relentless touring schedule, Cypress Hill has never forgotten their neighborhood of South Gate and continue to call Los Angeles home. They continue to support the community through scholarship programs and work with organizations like Guns for Goods, a gun buyback program to help get guns off the streets and away from the hands of children, the Wounded Heroes of America, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
