Universal Pictures has released eight new character posters for Seth MacFarlane’s western/comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” This wild west spoof is a departure from his “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and “Ted” roots. MacFarlane wears many hats in order to bring his vision to the big screen. He co-wrote, produced, directed and stars as the lead. Last, and certainly not least, MacFarlane wrote the novelization for this film, which will be published on March 4th. Check out the character posters with their comical inscriptions!
