Seth MacFarlane to Bring More Edge to the Oscars

Seth MacFarlaneSeth MacFarlane is aiming to bring more "edge" to this year's Oscars. The funnyman is set to host the 85th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 24 and while he feels he feels it's one of the "hardest" jobs to undertake - especially after gaining a reputation from his successful work, including adult animated comedy Family Guy - Seth acknowledges he won't be able to please the entire "tough" audience of stars.

"I've set myself up for the hardest job in the world because the fans of Family Guy and Ted and the shows and whatnot that I do are expecting one thing. If I deliver that, this crowd will walk out. The whole point of their bringing me on was to give it a little bit more of an edge. You have a room full of people who are at the top of their game - they're successful, they're being honored, they're attractive - and yet this is also the group with the thinnest skin on the planet. So it's a tough group," he told reporters.
