Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron Star In New Western Comedy

Charlize Theron and Seth MacFarlane visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, and Charlize talked a little about her son, Jackson.

"He’s great, he’s just… I’ve scored big time", Charlize said when Ellen asked how he was.
The Oscar-winning actress then went on to admit that Seth has nicknamed her son the "little Republican".

"He's just always saying no…'No, no, no, no, no, no...' Everything's no. No, no, no, no, no, no…No, Seth, no. Mama, no. No.' It's a lot of that", laughed Charlize whilst Seth laughed alongside her.

MacFarlane and Theron have an easy rapport, which they show with enthusiasm in "A Million Ways to Die in the West." In the raunchy, R-rated western comedy their outsider characters discover a shared hatred of life on the frontier, with all of its violence and discomfort.

"At the core of this movie's premise is that if you're not an alpha male, what can you do out there?" said MacFarlane, who also wrote the film, with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. "You've just gotta keep your head down."

The pair also talked about how the public treats his ideas versus the media.  MacFarlane says he gets far more criticism from the news than audiences who watch his shows.  Theron interjected by agreeing that most of his humor is spot on.

She was quick to point out that ratings for MacFarlane's Oscars were up over the previous year when Billy Crystal hosted, including a 20% jump in the key 18-to-34 demographic.
"Many of the people who tuned in when he hosted ... that age group never cared about the Oscars," Theron said. "We know who the audience for our movies is. Yet we have an awards show that... doesn't reflect our industry at all. I was like, yeah, finally we have a show that people want to go and see."

MacFarlane said he feels blowback not from audiences but from journalists.

"The press is very easily offended," he said. "It's the outrage industry. The rest of the country, they're fine. They'll laugh. They're OK with it. I don't operate in the way that I want to please the critics. That's like putting a puppet show on for your parents. You want as many people to see it as possible, as many people to enjoy it as possible, and the audience at large is OK with that stuff."

"A Million Ways to Die in the West," is set to be released on May 30th in theaters.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
