Seth Woodbury MacFarlane (born October 26, 1973 in Kent, Connecticut) is an animator, screenwriter, producer, director and voice actor for the cartoon series Family Guy. He has worked for Walt Disney and television series like American Dad!, The Cleveland Show, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken and The Life of Larry.
MacFarlane has donated over $73,000 to Democratic Party candidates and frequently mocks neoconservatives. He is a huge proponent of same-sex marriage and is also an atheist. It is also to be noted that MacFarlane also incorporated several of his own characteristics, including most notably his atheism and support for same-sex marriage, into at least one of the characters of his series, Brian Griffin (largely because he was the one character he didn't need to radically alter his own real life voice when doing his own voice acting), which was met with a lot of controversy later on.
