So it looks like it was confirmed that Kanye will be a character on an episode for the upcoming Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show after all. Sanaa Lathan, will be a regular on the show playing Cleveland’s wife, Donna. Also Taraji P. Henson will be playing a character on the same episode that Kanye will be featured on and that episode will air sometime in 2010.
And would the producers ever have Grammy-winning West back on the show? “We just recorded him in the booth and he was fantastic,” says Appel. “Once he read it a couple times through, he just owned the character, which I guess isn’t hard since he was named Kenny West. He said he’d be glad to [be back.]. I said we could write him in to the next 21 episodes!”
The Cleveland Show is set to premiere on FOX in the fall of 2009. As a Family Guy fanatic, I cant wait for this.
