The American Dad! cast has a large assortment of voice actors, and this is what they all look like in real life. The most recognizable of the American Dad! cast is likely Seth MacFarlane, thanks in no small part to his work with Family Guy. However, even beyond MacFarlane, there’s still a lot of other noteworthy talent among the cast, whether it be the main cast or recurring characters.
American Dad! has been on the air for 17 years now, with the show set to enter into season 19 and already being renewed for two more. What started as a satire of George Bush-era America has since evolved into a goofy situational comedy that often borders on the surreal. That sort of writing got more apparent after the show moved to TBS, and it helps to give it a style that makes it stand out from MacFarlane’s other shows like Fox’s Family Guy or The Cleveland Show.
The American Dad! cast features a large pool of talent voicing the characters, many of whom are professional voice actors who have had years of experience with programming for both children and adults. Others are people who have more experience in live-action, but still do a great job, nonetheless.
