Seth MacFarlane With the Man Who Saved His Voice for the Oscars

Curated by

 

The unenviable task of maintaining those golden vocal cords — the 41-year-old mogul’s entertainment empire is said to be worth a cool billion — falls to MacFarlane’s longtime ear, nose and throat surgeon of 11 years, Shawn Nasseri. It’s Nasseri, 45, who rescued MacFarlane’s 2013 Oscars-hosting gig, which nearly didn’t happen thanks to a severe bout of walking pneumonia. Scan the Harvard-educated doctor’s Beverly Hills office’s walls, and you’ll spot signed CDs from such patients as Steven Tyler, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and One Direction’s Harry Styles, whose inscription reads, “To Shawny: Cheers a bunch for shoving an uncomfortable tube down my nose.

 

 

  • Nasseri winces at the admission: “You can’t say that!
  • Big love, Harry S.” Hanging nearby are Family Guy doodles drawn by MacFarlane, including one in which the show’s Stewie flips the bird at a Clay Aiken record.
