Fox has released an image from "Saving Private Brian," the Sunday, Nov. 5 episode of Family Guy.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"After Chris is approached by an Army recruiter, Brian goes to the headquarters to give him a piece of his mind, but Stewie tags along and gets them both enlisted in boot camp. The two make it through training with no help from Sergeant Angryman (guest-star Lou Gossett Jr.) and end up in Iraq, where they try everything possible to get an honorable discharge. Meanwhile, at home base, Chris joins a Goth rock band and their hit track is 'Evil, Evil Monkey.'"

Macaulay Culkin also provides a guest-voice.

The Nov. 12 episode of Family Guy will be "Whistle While Your Wife Works" and will guest-star Carrie Fisher and Drew Barrymore.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"When Peter hurts his hand and his boss Angela (Fisher) tells him he needs to pick up the pace, Lois goes to the brewery and helps him play catch-up. Meanwhile, when Stewie discovers that Brian is dating a very attractive but intellectually challenged girl named Jillian (Barrymore), he tries to convince Brian to break up with her, but Brian can't close the deal because she is so hot."
