Alright. They may not be getting their own animated series, but the British-Irish Pop boy band, One Direction, will be lending some of their voices to an episode of Family Guy.
The boys are all rested up, and having taken a break between tours, they are ready to start doing something new! Whether you love them or hate them we have high hopes for their roles in the upcoming episode.
The directors haven’t given much insight on the episode, but we are told that the band will be conversing with Stewie around a campfire, sharing scary stories of the days without skinny jeans! Chris will be running for Homecoming King in this episode, and that is sure to bring the laughs rolling in, if 1D doesn’t manage to themselves.
While Harry Styles and Niall Horhan will be in the scene, only Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson will have actual lines of dialogue. It is also rumored that there will be an appearance by Simon Cowell, but whether he will voice the roll or not is yet to be determined.
Family Guy executive producers Richard Appel and Steve Callaghan said, in a statement to Entertainment Weekly “There are not a lot of shows that, in the same season, feature guest-star appearances by both Frank Sinatra, and One Direction,” and they are very pleased with this!
The episode, titled “Run, Chris, Run”, is set to air in May of this year!
