Seth MacFarlane looks like he's getting ready to kill it at the Oscars. And he's taking a cue from Psycho.
The funnyman pulls an Alfred Hitchcock in this new promo clip for his upcoming hosting gig at next month's Academy Awards. And, based on his irate reaction in it, he doesn't look too happy checking into the notorious Bates Motel.
"I'm Seth MacFarlane and I'll be hosting the Oscars this year, where we'll be celebrating all your favorite films…like Psycho!" he says, before the clip cuts to the host chilling in his motel room...which happens to be right next to where Janet Leigh's Marion Crane meets her infamous end.
Needless to say, those shrieking noises he hears through the walls are anything but randy.
"Keep it down!" he wails, banging at the wall. "I have a meeting in four hours!"
Killer, indeed: If MacFarlane's wisecracking nominations-day routine is any indication, then we're in for some hilarious verbal slashing when the Big Night rolls around.
