Eminem To Get Animated With Stewie Griffin From 'Family Guy'

'I'm a big fan of talking babies and their humor,' Em says of his cartoon co-hosting gig on Sunday.

Eminem has been many things, from a world-famous, multiplatinum rapper to an Academy Award winner. He was once even animated into a series of cartoon shorts. Now, Eminem is taking his animated career even further, co-hosting Fox's "animation domination" programming block with none other than Stewie Griffin from "Family Guy."

"It was a thrill to work with Stewie," Eminem said in a press release. "I'm a big fan of talking babies and their humor."

The seemingly unlikely pair are teaming up to make a MySpace music announcement Sunday night (MySpace and Fox are owned by the same parent company, News Corporation). Perhaps it will be a surprise/secret MySpace concert, or maybe just Eminem thanking you for the friend add. Only time will tell.

Of course, that's not the only connection Stewie has to rap music. Back in 2003, he guest-starred on the MTV News VMA preshow to review some of the nominees. We couldn't help but pull that clip out of the vault and dust it off while we get psyched for Shady's announcement on Sunday.

If that's not enough Eminem for you, get your fill when Marshall does three nights of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" He'll be keeping America up late Friday, Tuesday (the day his Relapse album is released) and the following Friday, with that last performance live via satellite from Detroit.
