She's had some of the most dignified and acclaimed roles in the world, and now Cate Blanchett is going for a new gig: a guest starring role on "Family Guy."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Academy Award winning actress will pop in for an episode next spring on the hit Fox animated series.
No details yet on Blanchett's character. The actress is currently filming "The Hobbit" in New Zealand.

I agree with Al-Lo. Obama shouldve waiting for about a year as this boost in his polling numbers wont last long. Nice try Obama.
How do we KNOW bin laden is dead? Because the government said so? B.S. piled so high. It's not confirmed because the body was disposed of IMMEDIATELY @ f*!*ing sea?? Why was Saddams sons killed then photographed for "confirmation"? Ok.... I guess the"war on terror" will stop now huh? Everybody is mentally in the BOX!! WAKE UP!!!
I use to think the show was very funny, but now some of it is so rude and offensive, I don't even find it funny. I find they focus on the other characters too much and need to focus more on Peter. Peter is hilarious.
I agree. Lets focus on more Peter in my mouth and more Peter in my butthole. I love Peter suckin...give them to me boys!!
They should have Early Cuyler on the show. Look it up

As a former fan... Family Guy is waaaaay overrated. King of the Hill is the best show. I was stupid in my youth.
@B lo me want to play Balls Inspector its when we rub and lick each others balls or Weiner Inspector its when we rub and lick each others weiners.Its a great game for g@ys.I played it with Billie Joe Armstrong.

Stick it up her obama!

Hey Diva. You are the loser that is always stirring up BS on the cnn blogs. Find a hobby please...
I love family guy and even if I didnt id rather hear about it than the royal wedding
where's ma money man =) love stewei
& also giigdy
Family Guy is great because it picked up where the Simpsons died. Seth wasn't afraid to be edgy and creative, and that's what draws crowds. The fact that the crappy Simpsons are still on is a testament to how big Family Guy has become; Matt Groening simply doesn't want to realise he already lost the comedy race. Let the Simpsons die with whatever miniscule amount of dignity they have left. ...Also, giggity.
Family Guy is da~bom diggity! BRIAN is the funniest character they have! & shutup Meg!
Family Guy is too clever for most people. Even a lot of people who watch the show don't really "get it". Seth McFarlane = too awesome. His works dominate Sunday night television for a very good reason, so don't hate just because you'd rather be watching Will & Grace or Friends.
And now we play the waiting game...
A respectible acting resume', an Academy Award winner, etc...are all miniscule compared to Ms. Blanchet having finally landed the role of all roles; the epitome of what all actors and actresses aspire to!!! Ms. Blanchet has now reached the ultimate plateau of her acting career! To be allowed to work along side Stewie, Quagmire, Brian, Peter, Lois, and the others...this will go down in Hollywood lore! And in the words of the most masculine acting prowess on the big screen today, I give you...."Giggity!!!"
This shows gonna be here for a h-while..
You're eating a pie with Meg's hair in it!!!
Meg "I met a guy today!" Peter "shut up meg" quagmire "giggidy" stewie "what the deuce is katy perry doing naked"
Big deal family guy is not that good some episodes are but not all like thats y the simpsons is better
"Will watching Family guy do anything for you? There are more things to do than watch and you get nothing out of it."
Like sit around and act superior on the internet?
Will watching Family guy do anything for you? There are more things to do than watch and you get nothing out of it.
Why watch this when you can be doing better things.
Wait, why is she even going to be in "The Hobbit"? She played Galadriel in LOTR, a character who didn't come anywhere close to appearing in "The Hobbit."
and you are a stupid cold-hearted b!tch!
Anyone that watches this show are morons and are lacking brain cells.
Ummmmm riiiight.. Only if we were in the 19 century... But no, iots call internet. Doesn't matter were you are.. Btw. Are you aware of social media? Cell phones? Yes!!!! You woke up walt disney!!!! Ufffff
I'm a 52 year old educated lady and Grandmother and NOTHING makes me laugh more than the site of Peter Naked and drunk asking his co-worker why doesn't he have the lights on when they make love!!!!!! I love this show!
Poor broad? You mean the mega successful highly popular poor broad? You fail
Only the coolest people watch family guy so if you don't like it or don't watch it then your not cool... Its that simple :)
Hey I make a good life for my family. For all the office stuff I put up with day to day, insane customers, and general craziness of life I deserve something better. My escape is The Simpsons (been watching since Tracy Ulman Show), Family Guy, and American Dad (reminds my husband of my ex lol). SM keep up the tradition of putting tradition in a purple nurple like MG. MG by the way has Stephen Hawking as a fan and guest star. Cate is joining a happy few!
thats how my scoutmaster shakes hands!!
I love both South Park and Family Guy, and these are shows that still have a strong following after many seasons. I can understand people not liking the show (unlike many of us), but to say the show is terrible with such authority is to pretend you speak for anyone else but yourself, which is not a really smart thing to do.
And really, how can you not giggle everytime you come across with the phrase "giggity"?
WOW front page news indeed. Give the writer and editor a prize...or a free job at associatedcontent.com
Who really cares about Family Guy now? It's just a bunch of cancer and AIDS jokes. And that "Cavalcade" DVD was crap.
@No And CHARLIE SHEEN is relatively important to society?
This is one sad blog page.....
South park rules!!
I thought it would be Charlie Sheen or someone of relative importance in society, not someone completely irrelevant...
If charlie sheen is your idea of relevance then we are more messed up than I thought.
Isn't the idea of the entertainment section to report on things going on in the entertainment world? I know it's obviously not the biggest news story ever, but it does still go with the idea set forth for this area of CNN. Those who say this isn't news worthy for this section obviously only want reports of people in Hollywood dying. I don't. I find this interesting seeing as how most of her work has been very respectable and high end. Not that there is anything wrong with doing family guy. I find the show entertaining. Just wonder what sort of role she will play.
Respect the simpsons simpletons!
Gorillaz rock. and i look like murdoc
all the familt guy catchprrases: giggity wat the deuce bird is the word hmmmmm shut up meg oh nooooo i knooooow its raining sidways!! chunky!! swiming hole!! Stewie killed lois lois wasnt dead ladys old he gnna get it etc etc

Mommy, mommy.... the trolls are all over CNN's comment page...
It's all about the Benjamins.
Can't let you do that Blanchett.
Who is she anyway..like dont nobody care

Cate blanchett hmmm? She will be the perfect mate after my plot for world domination. The world shall be ours and we will repopulate this wretched rock.
DAMN U ALL! Victory is mine!
Wait – people still watch Family Guy?
Can you guys shut up? I'm trying to watch The Simpsons!
Family guy stupid! What? Evidently you do not attain the capasity for this higher level of comedy. Don't watch it... Its just to funny. Go watch robot chicken!
Apparently, you don't have the capacity to spell capacity.
Cool? But I don't get why that is entertainment, there have been way better guest starring roles. Oh well... FG rocks! =D
Hey there muscley arm hobbit boy....wanna see a magic staff? hmmmm.....lol
Let's hope Seth knows when to ride off into the sunset, thus avoiding the Schiavo-like existence that has befallen "The Simpsons".
Are you freaking kidding me, the Simpsons are better now than they have been in years.
Family guy is soo awsome right!!!!!!
FG loves to make fun of her "beauty";) interested to see what they're gonna do with her!
also...giggity, shut up Meg, the bird is the word etc. etc.
Famliy Guy Rocks!
I'd snoop around her hobbit-hole! Giggity! Oh!
Family guy is the best show ever made! by far!
That's funny, troll.
At least she's filming the hobbit that's good news
Anybody watch the royal wedding
Love family guy. Watching it right now. Funnnnyyy
I'll take them all Mr hubert, only if she will sit on my face.
Damn teenage boy I need to start younger... hey stewie.
Hey Chris wanna handful of tylenol pm?

Look at how many viewers family guy has week in and week out. She's just trying to boost her popularity. Can't really blame the poor broad.
I'll watch it
Shut up Meg... .
Well played sir.
Does this mean I wont be on that episode?
Your worse than us Meg.
WHAT THE DEUCE !
You see? This is why I love coming on these sites-the comments are worth the price of admission alone!
Dizzy D. You paid to get in here?
Whoooooopie! is her career fading out that she has to stoop to R-rated CARTOONS?
Could be that she just wanted to do something different. From time to time, things are that simple.
Family Guy is a TV-14 rated show. It's a family type show for all to watch. If you don't like it tune into Michelle Bachmans penis on Fox News. I read he is balls in with her wife. God Bless!
it never ceases to amaze me how many people look at entertainment news and then whine that its not news. of course its not news thats why its in the entertainment section.
Well it is still news, it's just not about politics or sports. It provides information (or news) about this area, i.e. entertainment. it is still news though.
why do the time of posting vary so widely? is it the time zone each person is posting from?
Family Guy terrible! You will rue the day youu made that comment.....Go ahead, start rueing!
have you not heard? The Bird is the word! Giggidy!
It was my understanding that everyone had heard.
Rue the day? Who talks like that?
Family Guy is terrible.
It was once a good show and then the dumb writers decided to get overly political and recycle stories from older episodes.
I KNOW RIGHT? them constantly flashing back to him fighting the bird and re-fighting the bird is TERRIBLE.
as for family guy changing over time, the only thing that changed was the art quality oh and um pushing stewie being gay more and the pedo neighbor.... most likely the reasons u dont like it aka against my supreme christian taliban values which makes no sense as the neighbor is simply doing what your priests have done for centuries
I'd hit it.
i know, right?
Sweet, but this isn't news.
How is this any less "news"worthy than anything else in the Entertainment section?
the AUTHOR of this non article realizes FAMILY GUY is a cartoon right?
FYI in a cartoon the characters are DRAWN so if the artist has the ability to draw a FLEA it can star in the show. and on top of that is Seth mcFarlan can mimic the sound of a donkey then they can draw a Flea that sounds like a Donkey. I know I know it all sounds complicated but yeah cartoons are head strong
How could serious actress like Blanchedtt do a gig on weak-dick show like "Family Guy"?Hard up for funds?
I think Family Guy is the best show on TV. I do know God tunes in on Sunday nights to watch. God couldn't produce a better show if it tried.
Hey, morons... It is news. Entertainment news, as so cleverly filed in the Entertainment section of the news. What exactly is a non-article anyway? An article that isn't an article? You must be an art student. Do you think anyone will remember you when you die?
If we at CNN say its news then believe us, IT IS NEWS!
