One Direction to Guest Star on ‘Family Guy’

The lads of One Direction will pay a visit to the Griffin family.

That’s right. The world’s biggest pop group will guest star on Fox’s “Family Guy” for a May episode, Variety has confirmed. Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson lent their voices to an episode about Chris running for homecoming king.

The fearsome foursome appear in a campfire scene, during which Stewie tells them a horror story about non-skinny jeans, according to Entertainment Weekly. One Direction mastermind Simon Cowell is also a character in the episode, but, like Harry Styles and Niall Horan, it’s unclear who voiced his ‘toon.

The episode, called “Run, Chris, Run,” will air after the boys begin their hiatus in March. Their latest album, “Made in the A.M.,” dropped in November, selling 460,000 copies in its first week. One Direction was the most-discussed musical artist on Twitter in 2015.

Family Guy,” now in its 13th season, airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
