Members of One Direction Lend Voices to ‘Family Guy’
One Direction may be taking a well-deserved break from each other, but they’re not stepping out of the spotlight just yet.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the entire group is set to appear in an upcoming episode of television show Family Guy, though only members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne actually recorded dialogue for the episode.
The site says the plot will focus on Chris, who is running for homecoming king, and the quartet will be featured in a scene with Stewie who tells them a campfire story “involving non-skinny jeans.” This is likely supposed to be funny, as Family Guy is technically a comedy.
Simon Cowell, the brains behind the operation that
was is One Direction, will also reportedly be featured in the scene, though there’s no confirmation on whether the music mogul will voice himself.
Family Guy’s executive producers Richard Appel and Steve Callaghan commented on the upcoming episode in an statement to Entertainment Weekly. “There are not a lot of shows that, in the same season, feature guest-star appearances by both Frank Sinatra, Jr. and One Direction. And we really enjoyed their time with us, until we realized we were both old enough to be their fathers.”
1D’s episode, which is titled “Run, Chris, Run,” will air in May, though a specific date has not yet been set.
