Sam Elliott in season 19 of ‘Family Guy’: Family Guy is a long-running series in which there was a key role of Mayor. The role was played by Adam West. However, with the death of Adam West, the series lost its beloved character. And hence the series chose to kill off Mayor rather than recasting the role. Since the death of Adam West, the series was without the mayor. Nevertheless, the series has now decided to recast the role of Mayor Adam West. In the 19th season of Family Guy, we will see the A+ replacement of Mayor Adam West. The role will now be played by Sam Elliott.
Sam Elliott will be the new Mayor:
The veteran cowboy actor has received an Oscar nomination for the role in A Star is Born. Other projects wherein he played a similar role as a cowboy include The Big Lebowski, Netflix’s The Ranch, and Tombstone. However, unlike Adam West, Sam Elliott will not play a fictionalized version of himself. His character is expected to hail from the West and can be named as Wild Wild West. We can rightly make out that both the middle name and First name are Wild. Surely the new mayor character will have many similarities with the voice actor.
Since Sam Elliott did not want to play a fictionalized version of himself just like Mayor Adam West, he was not ready to join Family Guy right off. Furthermore, the new mayor is Mayor Adam West’s cousin. Richard Appel is the executive producer of Family Guy. He clearly explained the entrance of Wild Wild West (Sam Elliott) as the new mayor of Quahog.
Release Date of Family Guy:
Family Guy season 19 is scheduled to release on 27 September this year at 9:30 pm. Further, the first episode portraying the new mayor as West West Wild will be out in November.
