Seth MacFarlane said he's planning on making a "Family Guy" movie.
The Oscar host told a class full UCLA college kids Wednesday he already has a story ready to go, according to Entertainment Weekly.
"It's just a matter of when," MacFarlane said. "It's hard to do that while you have the series going on at the same time; I think that's why it took 'The Simpsons' 20 seasons to figure out how to do it."
After the blockbuster success of his R-rated stuffed-bear movie "Ted" last summer, MacFarlane is in position push whatever film projects he likes. And he already has a story in place for Family Guy's move to the big screen.
"We do know what the 'Family Guy' movie will be, MacFarlane said. "'The Simpsons Movie,' I thought, was hilarious, but the one criticism I would have is that it's a story they probably could've done on TV. There could've been an episode that had that plotline. That's the challenge with animation. You pretty much can do any story you want, so what is the reason for the movie? We finally hit on the answer to that question, and it will be something that would be impossible to do on TV."
Does that mean nudity and bad language?
"I can't tell you what that is," he said, to disappointed groans from the students.
LINDSAY LOHAN BEAT UP A PSYCHIC WHO HIRED GLORIA ALDRED: Today's Lindsay Lohan news, naturally, involves a psychic, violence, a bad movie, and Gloria Aldred, all soaked in a tub of alcohol.
Tiffany Mitchell -- the woman Lohan allegedly punched early Thursday morning in a New York City nightclub, is apparently a "well-known psychic" who says she had a premonition about Lohan, according to TMZ.
If it involved Lohan running someone over or being arrested, that's not a premonition. That's an educated guess.
So, Mitchell allegedly approached Lohan at a New York club and offered to give her a free reading ("I see alcohol, jail and a courtroom in your future ..." ), but Lohan turned her down, saying, "Give me my space."
As she walked away, Mitchell's friend supposedly heard Lohan call her an "(expletive) Gypsy" and went crazy, yelling back at Lohan and calling her a "(female prostitute)" and saying "'Liz & Dick sucked.'"
Well, it did.
That's about the time Lohan punched Mitchell in the eye. Lohan was eventually arrested for assault.
This Mitchell woman must not be a very good psychic if she didn't see that coming.
And, as if you didn't see this coming, it looks like Mitchell has already hired Gloria Aldred, according to TMZ.
It's unclear if Mitchell has officially hired Aldred as her attorney, but the two were spotted together on the streets of New York City Friday afternoon. And they were smiling. That's not a good sign.
Previous reports have said the fracas started when Lohan and Mitchell were sparring for the attentions of Max George, a singer with the boy band The Wanted.
Adding insult to injury (the actress was also finally charged Thursday in Southern California for allegedly lying to police after her June car crash), Lohan assistant Gavin Doyle (the one Lohan claimed was driving her Porsche during the crash) tweeted that Lohan needs to go to rehab. TMZ says he's likely the source behind a recent report that she drinks two liters of vodka a day.
Somewhere, Charlie Sheen is impressed.
According to TMZ's sources, Lohan's stress over her financial and legal situations has caused her drinking to escalate. The sources supposedly said Lohan -- who's struggled with substance abuse and has a DUI conviction -- often begins drinking first thing in the morning and continues all day.
HALLE BERRY REACHES AGREEMENT: Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have reached an agreement over whether Aubry would continue visitation with their 4-year-old daughter Nahla, after the Thanksgiving day fight between Aubry and Berry's fiancee, Olivier Martinez.
Berry's attorney Blair Berk held-up a handwritten message outside the courtroom Friday morning that said, "The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter."
Nice try. RadarOnline quoted a source saying the agreement mandates that Martinez won't be present when Aubry drops Nahla off because, you know, he likes to punch Aubry in the face.
The source also says that Aubry was supposed to have Nahla on Thanksgiving, but Berry wanted her and Aubry was trying to be a nice guy. Apparently he was pretty much blindsided by Mr. Angry French Guy.
Berry and Olivier weren't in court, but Aubry and his busted-up face showed up.
As you know, Aubry's face attacked Olivier's fists when Aubry dropped off his daughter at Berry's house on Thanksgiving. Within the next few days, Berry had a restraining order against Aubrey, and Aubrey had one against Olivier, who didn't need to get a restraining order against anyone because he's the toughest man in France.
JOE JACKSON RECOVERING FROM STROKE: Joe Jackson was in a Las Vegas hospital Friday, a day after suffering what's being called a "mild" stroke.
The 83-year-old Jackson family patriarch "is in very good spirits" and expects to be sent home from the hospital Friday, said a Jackson family source who asked not to be identified.
It was probably that Bubbles. He just can't keep his mouth shut sometimes.
The "mild" stroke is similar to two others he suffered within the past five years, another source close to Jackson said.
Jackson created and managed the Jackson 5. Although he's still married to Jackson matriarch Katherine Jackson, they live separately. He has a home in Las Vegas, while she lives in Calabasas with Michael Jackson's three children.
