Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin might be in for a meth of trouble.
TV’s erstwhile Walter White, aka Bryan Cranston, will voice Peter’s new boss at the Pawtucket Brewery during Season 16, it was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. Claws‘ Niecy Nash will also lend her voice to the episode, as the wife and business partner of Cranston’s character.
The previous brewery manager, Angela, was voiced by the late Carrie Fisher and will appear briefly in the upcoming season. (Fisher recorded lines for at least one more episode before her death on December 27.)
Cranston has previously guest-starred in two episodes of the Seth MacFarlane series as Hal in 2006 and Dr. Jewish in 2008.
Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Amanda Seyfried (Big Love) will also lend their voices in the upcoming season, which premieres Sunday, Oct. 1 at 9/8c on Fox.
