Prepare for a spectacular night of glitz, glamor…and giggles. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane has been tapped to host the 2013 Oscars. MacFarlane, 38, is also the co-creator of “American Dad” and The Cleveland Show.
As a veteran live stage performer, MacFarlane kicked off “Saturday Night Live”‘s 38th season by hosting the premiere episode, and has brought his skill set to sold-out audiences at London’s Royal Albert Hall as well as Carnegie Hall in New York.
