Charlize Theron Seth McFarlaneSeth McFarlane is making a Western called ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ and Charlize Theron is in talks to be a part of the film. Well, with McFarlane attached to the project you can safely assume without even being told that the film would be a comedy, but it’s interesting that McFarlane chose to make a Western as a follow up to Ted. Frankly speaking Westerns in the recent years haven’t really been hot property at the box-office. But then, its McFarlane who is making the film and even acting in it, hence it can be safely assumed it will be different from any Western we have ever seen.

Also, Theron is one talented actress and if she signs on the dotted line, she would surely have a role written for her that we shall as audiences remember for years to come. In the film, McFarlane shall reportedly play a farmer, who is dumped by his girlfriend after chickening out of a gunfight. He then under the tutelage of Theron’s character in the film learns how to shoot. Theron it turns out is the wife of an outlaw in the film and hence is an expert at gunplay. Also, while they two are at it they end up getting involved romantically.

MacFarlane has written the screenplay with fellow Ted and Family Guy writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesly Wild. MacFarlane is taking quite a huge risk casting himself as the star of the film,Charlize Theron Seth McFarlane Western as he honestly has no experience in acting, especially in a film. But, the chap is one talented SOB and we might discover he is a natural onscreen. Many would obviously argue that he has voiced the bear on Ted and voiced a number of characters on Family Guy, so that counts as acting, as he does wonders with his voice. Be that as it may, acting is not just about voice, it is also about body language and expressions, which is where we shall have to wait and see how McFarlane fares.

Anyway, McFarlane has his hands full for now as Family Guy is a show that is still going strong. Then there is Ted 2 that has been announced and of course how can we forget that the guy shall be hosting the Oscars, and we don’t need to tell you how big a deal that is. Basically, Seth McFarlane is sailing in many boats at the same time and is apparently doing a really great job of it.
