Seth Green, who plays Chris on Fox's Family Guy, was part of a recent celebration for the show's 100th episode on Nov. 4.

"I never thought I would get to do a job like this, that's so much fun, so silly and so consistently creative," Green said.

Green, co-creator of Top Cow's The Freshmen and Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, also talked about the show's resurrection, the fan base and playing Chris.

Ronald D. Moore, executive producer, head writer and developer of Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica is slated to make his directorial debut on the show. The episode, which Moore will also write, is scheduled to begin filming just before Thanksgiving.

"I've thought about directing for a long time and this season seemed like the time to finally take the plunge," Moore said. "It'll be great to be working with the BSG family of cast and crew for my first experience behind the camera, and I'm really looking forward to it."

The special extended two-hour event, Battlestar Galactica: Razor, will premiere Saturday, Nov. 24, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). Sci Fi has announced that Season 4 will return in early April.

Earlier this year, Moore received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Drama series for Battlestar Galactica's two-parter, "Occupation/Precipice."

Deeply rooted in the sci-fi genre, Moore got his start in the entertainment business on the writing staff of Star Trek: The Next Generation. During his tenure there, he wrote or co-wrote 27 episodes, including the two-hour series finale "All Good Things," for which he won a Hugo Award in 1994.

In 1994, Moore joined the writing staff of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as supervising producer and was elevated to co-executive producer the following year. Moore spent five seasons on the series until the end of its run in 1999. He then served briefly as Executive Consultant on USA Cable's series Good vs. Evil before joining the staff of Roswell as executive producer. After two seasons in that post, he took over the reins as show-runner from creator Jason Katims in its final year. In the fall of 2002, Moore was named show-runner and executive producer of HBO's Carnivale.

DC Comics on Friday announced that artist Jerry Robinson, a key contributor during the early years of the Batman comic book series, will be a creative consultant for the company.

"It's an honor to have Jerry complete his journey from DC's bullpen to advising us on characters he was intimately involved with, and the international world of comics he knows so well," said Paul Levitz, DC Comics president and publisher.

"I am delighted to be affiliated with DC Comics, my alma mater, as creative consultant," Robinson said. "I look forward to working with Paul Levitz, whom I greatly admire, and the enormously talented DC editors, artists and writers."

Born on January 1, 1922 in Trenton, N.J., Robinson was a student at Columbia University in New York when he first began working for Batman creator Bob Kane in 1939. Kane, along with writer Bill Finger, had just created Batman for National Comics, the company that would eventually become DC Comics. Robinson first began as a letterer and background inker, eventually moving into the role of penciller and primary inker for the early Batman strips.

In 1942, Robinson began a stint as the series' main artist. He played a vital role in the early appearances of legendary Batman characters, notably The Joker, Robin, Alfred, and The Penguin, and executed many of the iconic covers of the Golden Age of comic books.

After leaving the Batman line, Robinson continued working in the comic-book field, writing and drawing numerous features for a variety of publishers. In 1961 he began a new career, creating the political/social satire "still life" and later Life with Robinson," syndicated daily for 34 years. Another popular creation "Flubs & Fluff" ran in the Sunday New York News for more than two decades.

Robinson's new role as creative consultant will reunite the legendary creator with many of the characters he spent decades working with, including Batman.
