Cate Blanchett has adorned many a hat in her acting career, from an elf queen to an aging woman, to a ruthless government operative. It shall only be fair to say that, she is one of the most talented actresses showbiz has seen in a long long time. Therefore it can only be considered great news, when someone like her is brought in as a guest star or rather guest voice in a popular show like Family Guy. It isn’t really a secret that stars one in a while like to get in touch with their zany side, and want to prove to the audiences that they too have a funny bone in them.
What better way for them to do the proving, than voice characters on popular animated shows like the Simpsons or Family Guy. In fact it wouldn’t be wrong to say that, this trend was started by the Simpsons, with nearly every big movie and TV star having made a guest appearance on the show, at one point of time or the other. So come this Sunday and Cate Blanchett’s voice would greet you in your living room that is if you put on Family Guy. The character you need to look out for on the show is a girl called Penelope, who would be featured as Stewie’s newest bud. Surely, the Oscar winner will voice Penelope in her own inimitable style, becoming Penelope’s voice rather than Penelope sounding like Cate Blanchett.
In the show Penelope would not only be bonding with Stewie but would also be having a boat load of fun. A case in point is a part where Stewie and Penelope plant an exploding wallet on Mort, who is none the wiser. They then stalk him, with the both of them maniacally giggling, at the thought of having played such a joke.
