Carrie Fisher will not only return posthumously in next month’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” but also in two more episodes of Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.”
Fisher, who died last December, had a recurring role as family patriarch Peter’s sexually-harassing boss, Angela, and on tonight’s episode she sticks it to Peter by firing him… three times.
“She comes in dressed in this odd get-up that we’ve never seen her wear before, and says, ‘You’re relieved of your position,'” executive producer Steve Callaghan told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s like, who fires someone that way? Beyond just the words themselves, her delivery of it was perfect, just the right balance of realistic, but stilted and oddly distant.”
Although Angela gives Peter the heave=ho, in one version of the axing, she also gives him a big wet one!
“My favorite version of her firing Peter is the Michael Bay [segment], which culminates with Angela and Peter engaging in the grossest, longest French kiss you’ve ever seen,” Callaghan said with a laugh.
“So, having to direct her to make those noises was hilarious. We were all just cracking up, because I remember saying to her, ‘Okay, so now Angela is kissing Peter, and it’s just wet and lots of tongue,’ and she just jumped right into these ridiculously gross but hilarious noises.”
Fisher, who was in two dozen episodes of “Family Guy” over the last decade, will “appear” for the final time on Dec. 10, which is Peter’s last day at work before a holiday break.
And, for the last time, he annoys Angela to no end. “Family Guy” will provide also pay tribute to Angela (and Fisher) in an episode that will air next fall.
A seven-minute tribute to Fisher will be included in the Season 15 DVD of “Family Guy.” Check out a clip of that tribute below.
“Family Guy” airs on Fox on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
