Granted, the public’s standards for propriety weren’t as strong in the Old West as they are today…unless you count New Jersey. But even still, you’ve got to imagine that a few brows would be raised through the dusty saloons if Seth MacFarlane were to mosey about town with Amanda Seyfried on his arm. But actor/director/upcoming Oscar host MacFarlane is shirking either society’s norms, and bringing aboard young Seyfried as a romantic interest for his character in the developing comedy Western A Million Ways to Die in the West.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that 27-year-old actress is in talks to join the Family Guy creator’s new feature film, playing the woman that leaves the cowardly MacFarlane after he backs out of one of them duels the time period was so lousy with. The previously cast Charlize Theron will play the sharp-shooting wife of an outlaw who helps MacFarlane’s trembling farmer win back the love of his life.
A Million Ways to Die, a movie whose spirit is described to be reminiscent of Blazing Saddles, will be the director’s follow-up feature to the 2012 hit Ted.
