As an actor, he has made guest appearances on shows such as Gilmore Girls and The War at Home. MacFarlane’s interest in science fiction and fantasy has led to cameo and guest appearances on Star Trek: Enterprise and voicing the character of Johann Krauss in Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, as well as singing for the opening credits in the film Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder. His cartoon shows are known for spoof references to popular fiction in movies and on TV. He recently made his own YouTube channel called Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy.
He occasionally speaks at universities and colleges throughout the United States. A recent deal signed with The Fox Broadcasting Company has made MacFarlane the highest-paid television writer and producer in history. He resides in Los Angeles, California where he recently purchased a $13.5 million home and is reportedly being paid $100 million by 20th Century Fox TV for his most recent contract with them.
