(CNN) – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is going back to TV for this year’s Oscar’s host.
‘Family Guy’ and ‘American Dad’ creator Seth MacFarlane will take on what is considered the toughest gig in show business. MacFarlane admits that not many know his face.
[:52] “If you don’t know who I am just pretend I’m Donny Osmond, you’ll be fine, we’ll get through it.”
He performs many voices on his animated TV series. He’s also an actor and a singer. But what many don’t know about MacFarlane is that he escaped death on 9/11.
He was booked on American flight 11, the first plane to hit the World Trade Center. He overslept and missed his flight.
