2 William H Macey Was Nearly Brian Griffins Voice
When popular TV cartoon Family Guy first started William H. Macy auditioned for the role of Brian Griffin, the dog. However, although he auditioned for the role, Seth MacFarlane took on the role himself. He decided to voice Brian, along with many other characters from the show due to budget constraints.
Could you imagine Brian Griffin sounding like William H Macy? Imagine the voice of Curious George giving the sarcastic one liners and insightful words of wisdom. It just wouldn’t have worked as well.
