It's only been a month since we listed Seth Green as one of ten 90s TV stars we wanted to see back in a starring role and it looks like somebody at Fox was listening. Obviously, the actor never really left the small screen, whether it was providing several voices for Robot Chicken and Seth MacFarlance's Family Guy or popping up in guests spots like last year's reunion on How I Met Your Mother, but it's not the same as this new sitcom gig which puts the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer regular front and center.

THR recently announced that Green has been cast in Dads, Fox's upcoming sitcom from executive producer MacFarlane and written by Family Guy and Ted writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. The network clearly has a lot of faith in the new series quickly turning the pilot commitment into a six episode order even before putting the the voice of Chris Griffin (and one of the best Woody Allens) in the lead role. Well, co-lead since Green will be playing one of two friends whose fathers suddenly move in with them.

The multicamera comedy is about a couple of successful thirty-somethings video game entrepreneurs, Green's Eli and The Mindy Project's Tommy Dewey as Warner, burdened by the abrupt arrival of their titular Dads, played by Peter Riegert and Martin Mull respectively. Rounding out the cast are Brenda Song and Tonita Castro, the former coming off a brief but enjoyable guest run on New Girl, the latter probably best known as Fausta on Go On. Green's great in everything, and it's great to see some good news go his way after his Star Wars animated sitcom Detours was delayed indefinitely. Too bad, it looked funny. This sounds good too.
