Thought Adam West Talks About Playing Adam West On 'Family Guy'

The voice of Adam West has become so distinct that ďFamily GuyĒ hired him to play himself, and Nicolas Cage imitated him in the movie Kick-Ass. We got quite a thrill when we got to hear that voice coming over out phone line. West gave an interview from the back of his car on the way to his ceremony to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to promote ďFamily GuyĒ Volume 10 coming to DVD.



CraveOnline: Hello, Mr. West.

Adam West: Howdy, Fred, how are you.

CraveOnline: Iím great. Iím glad to talk to you.

Adam West: Well, thank you. Iím so delighted to be able to talk to you and to plug the ďFamily GuyĒ DVD thatís coming out soon.

CraveOnline: Can you believe itís Volume 10 already?

Adam West: Itís hard to believe. It really goes by quickly, doesnít it? Time flies of course an work on ďFamily GuyĒ is so enjoyable that it makes it go faster.

CraveOnline: What are your favorite episodes in Volume 10?

Adam West: I have none. I hate Ďem all. Listen, I am so impressed with the writing and the way this is done, the way Fox presents it and of course Seth MacFarlane, my dear friend, I donít have a favorite. Unless maybe itís the cat launcher. I say that for all of you animal cruelty people.

CraveOnline: When you read the cat launcher in the script, what did you think?

Adam West: I love Ďem all. Itís just fun to do, believe me.

CraveOnline: Whatís coming up for Mayor West in the current season?

Adam West: Well, Iíve done a couple of specials in the last month and I have a driver taking me to Hollywood where Iím going to get a star on the Walk of Fame.

CraveOnline: Congratulations on the star.

Adam West: Thank you very much. I really deserve it.

CraveOnline: Was a star on the Walk of Fame your long term goal when you got into Hollywood?

Adam West: Never. When I got to Hollywood there wasnít even a Boulevard. Iím that old. It was just a little dirt trail. Iím kidding.

CraveOnline: Where on the walk is your star?

Adam West: Iím very impressed and delighted that they chose to put me in between two of the greats. Two of the most wonderful performers who ever got in front of the camera.

CraveOnline: And they are?

Adam West: Rin Tin Tin and Daffy Duck.

CraveOnline: Is that true?

Adam West: No, get this. They put me between Judy Garland and Olivia De Havilland. Now youíre so young you might not remember either one.

CraveOnline: Iím a film buff so I know.

Adam West: They were terrific and I just feel very pleased and honored that they put me there and in front of the Guinness Book of World Records [museum.] It has a dinosaur on top. Are they trying to tell me something?

CraveOnline: Is Adam West a good mayor?

Adam West: The best! Except I canít get a new nameplate on my desk.

CraveOnline: How does he compare with the current Republican candidates?

Adam West: I don't know who they are. No, heíd probably do just as well especially on International Clam Day. Thatís when the local citizens of our choosing, somebody whoís been a great example to the rest of the town, puts on a big foam clam suit and we travel two miles offshore and he has to swim for shore. If he makes it heís sated with clam juice the rest of the year.

CraveOnline: What kind of town is Quahog vs. where you live?

Adam West: Itís quite unusual. Where I live, I have mountains and palm trees. Itís very strange. Sometimes zombies. Quahog is a sleepy, quiet little village nestled along the eastern shore.

CraveOnline: Do you live in L.A.?

Adam West: No, I have a place in Idaho and Palm Springs, California.

CraveOnline: When did this phenomenon of Adam West playing Adam West start for you?

Adam West: Well, it started with a few shows some years ago. For example, ďLove American Style,Ē some of those older shows like ďLove Boat.Ē Evidently Iíve superceded the roles that Iíd been playing somehow, which is good. I mean, itís really good. How lucky could an actor get to have created roles that have caught on in popular culture so well.

CraveOnline: Is it still nice to be able to say ďIím Batman?Ē

Adam West: Oh, itís fun to be an icon!

CraveOnline: Thatís a good line though, huh?

Adam West: Listen, Iím out there fighting crime 24-7. At midnight I walk Hollywood Blvd. and I look at the other stars dreaming. Some day I might be able to get home.

CraveOnline: Nicolas Cage was inspired by your voice in the movie Kick-Ass. What did you think about his portrayal?

Adam West: Oh, I thought it was stupid. No, Iím kidding. You know, Nicolas Cage is a marvelous actor and heís a good friend. When somebody gives you a little homage like that itís very flattering. So I was pleased of course.

CraveOnline: Did he get you right?

Adam West: He got pretty close. You know, when you get to the point in a career where youíre being imitated, itís kind of a nice thing as you get older and you serve more time so to speak in this pursuit of showbiz.
