The “Family Guy” and “American Dad” creator will guest voice “Ben” May 19 on the episode “Dangers on a Train.” Ben is a married man Marge Simpson gets to know at an online swingers site.

Here’s what Fox has to say about the episode: "In the first part of the season finale event, Homer (Dan Castellaneta), Moe (Hank Azaria), Lenny (Harry Shearer) and Carl (Azaria) win $200,000 in the Springfield Lottery. But when Carl takes off to Iceland — his homeland — with all the winnings, the guys embark on a Nordic adventure to get the cash back. Then, in the second part of the season finale episode, Marge mistakes a swinging Ashley Madison-type website for a Dolly Madison-type cupcake site, not realizing it's a destination for married people seeking liaisons. On the site, she meets the charming "Ben" (MacFarlane), who pursues her after they learn they share a love for a Downton Abbey-type TV series, Upton Rectory."

Lisa Lampanelli will also do a guest voice on “The Simpsons’” one-hour season 24 finale. This season has already featured Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Zooey Deschanel and Justin Bieber (he will appear this Sunday).
