First photo of Seth MacFarlane's Western

This summer, Seth MacFarlane's going to take us on a trip out West.

The comedic creator's next cinematic release is a Western appropriately called "A Million Ways to Die in the West," which he wrote, directed, and also stars in.

The first still from the film was recently released, and showcases MacFarlane as the cowardly sheep farmer at the center of the tale.

After the farmer, Albert, bows out of a gunfight, his lady love (played by Amanda Seyfried) ditches him for a braver man with a prominent mustache - Neil Patrick Harris' Foy. All isn't lost for poor Albert, as another love interest in the form of Charlize Theron soon strides into town.

The only problem is that she's the wife of an outlaw, and when her husband comes looking for her Albert has to muster up some courage once again.

"A Million Ways to Die in the West" arrives in theaters May 30.

    Big fan of the plausible western genre (like True Grit or 3:10 to Yuma)(vice implausible, like Drew Barrymore in Bad Girls or that pathetic politically correct Disney version Lone Ranger). I wish McFarlane success. Big New England lib, but track record of success. He breaks the oppressive Hollywood mold, and I loved his Oscars "jews control Hollywood" joke. The uproar was testament to the truth of that stinging statement.

    Funny thing is. Here I am in 2014. I'm a police officer in Kansas.

    Looking into that picture really takes me back. I used to be a deputy in Oklahoma in 1876. That's according to a psychologist that hypnotized me. It was a previous life. I was killed in an ambush by some bank robbers.

      Hey, mister reincarnated energy, apparently you're new around here. We are all committed leftists who disavow personal responsibility, and to do that we must disavow souls, afterlife, and religion. Since we must atone for nothing in an afterlife and morality is a manmade fiction, we are free to do as we please in the present, like take drugs and gay marriage. That's how we roll around here. Got it? You were not Wyatt Earp or Bat Masterton and any energy you presently have will decompose when you decease.

      Yes, definitely SoKKKman. I suspect he's the name-stealing, poop commenting troll everyone despises. It's not coincidence that he resurfaces in the midst of what's been going on here the last several days.

    • FYI: Robert is that bobcat (in a hat) nitwit from TJI

      Both post the same inane "stories" like this. Just another TJI troll polluting the marquee blog. Or, maybe Robert/bob is THE troll.

  9. troll buster

    I'm going to leave this one on here, cause now you are just making me laugh at your feeble attempt to make me mad. You sure do put a lot of effort into this. Me, not so much. Click of a button, then you are gone. Then you pop back up, and click , you are gone again. Don't you get tired of this dance? All you have to do is post like a semi normal person, leave people alone, and I won't touch your comment. But if you want to be an azz hole, then know your comment will disappear either by my hand or another bloggers. It sounds like most people are sick of it. Anything sinking in?
