  • I’d watch for Tommy Dewey. He was one of my favourite parts of The Mindy Project.

  • I don’t think this is the final main role. They still have to cast Warner’s wife, and there might be another role or two.

    • He’s made a TON of money off of Family Guy for the last 14 years. :)

      • Yes he has plenty of money from Robot Chicken and Family Guy but Money is not the only thing actor’s want! They want recognition and acclaim. Fact is he quit Buffy for a film career because wasn’t earning enough! He showed no loyalty to the show that made him a star and his film career died and he’s crawling back to TV.

          • Oh and funny how the only success he can find after Buffy is voice over work!! Guess no one wants a 5 foot leading man!!

          • That’s where he’s gone wrong–they should do a sitcom about a bunch of short guys dealing with what’s it’s like being pocket-sized in a world that favors the tall. They could call it The Short Man Syndrome (a real condition–ever notice how most of the guys on Wanted posters at the post office are under 5’9″?).

    • He does the voice of Chris on Family Guy. He hasn’t left TV.

    • I think Seth could do any show he wants, he just is too big of a name to sign normally. His last live action gig was on Four Kings, which he only did because he’s friends with Kohan and Mutchnik.

  • Will his character be a nerd: the same character he’s playing for years?

  • Seth Green is worth about $35 million from his movie and tv appearances and as producer and writer of Robot Chicken. I do not think he is hurting for money, and is certainly not looking for fame. Some actors just like to find good work and have fun doing it. Seth was smart to leave Buffy and move on. He would never have made $35 million staying with the show.
