Linda Cardellini Confronted Seth MacFarlane About Getting Fired From "Family Guy" And OMG It's Amazing

"Nobody ever told me."

Linda Cardellini and Seth MacFarlane were guests on The Late Late Show With James Corden last night, and things took a SLIGHTLY awkward turn when Cardellini confronted MacFarlane about that time he fired her from Family Guy.

It all started when Corden suggested that Cardellini should appear on the hit animated show.

And MacFarlane made a face like, "Oh, shit."

"Well, funny you should mention that," Cardellini said to Corden. "Because I got fired from it once."

"Shut up!" Corden replied, while MacFarlane looked like he wanted to be anywhere but where he was sitting.

"I did. I did. I did a voice on it, and I told everybody to tune in and watch. And then when I watched it, I was replaced."

"I hope you didn't have people over to your house to, like, watch the show or anything like that," MacFarlane said.

"I mean, I might've... I mean, maybe," she replied.

Corden started giving MacFarlane a hard time for firing her — and Cardellini went on to describe how nobody had even given her a heads-up that she'd been replaced.

"I mean, it's fine, because if I stunk, I wouldn't want it on there, anyway," she told Corden.

Corden offered MacFarlane an opportunity to defend himself, but he pretty much played the "I don't know her" game.

There was then a TRULY awkward silence where nobody said anything.

"That's really it?" Corden asked him, laughing.

Corden and Cardellini continued to give MacFarlane a hard time — but in the end, they were able to laugh the whole thing off, and MacFarlane even offered her a role on another one of his shows, American Dad.
