Critics may be attacking Fox's new sitcom "Dads" as racist , but costar Seth Green isn't buying it. In an "Ask Me Anything" forum on Reddit on Tuesday, the actor defended the Seth MacFarlane-produced series, which has been spit-roasted by reviewers for jokes they feel indulge Asian American and other stereotypes. "There have been some groups who through their own cultural sensitivities feel that jokes that we're making are inappropriate for television, but I don't think any of those people have really seen the show as a whole and are solely focusing on singular jokes without considering them in the context of the entire show," Green said.

From Seth MacFarlane and some other producers behind the hit "Family Guy," "Dads" is a new Fox comedy about the often-shaky dynamic between aging fathers and their adult sons who are horrified by their behavior and views. But the series was anything but a laughing matter to several reporters at TCA who found much of the show's cultural humor racist and offensive. What was designed as a promotional question and answer session became a contentious session surrounding the question of political correctness, with the show's producers and cast members on the defensive as reporters bashed them.

Seth Green and the other makers of the Emmy-winning spoof show "Robot Chicken" -- part of the "Adult Swim" programming block on Cartoon Network -- cover a lot of pop-culture ground with their puppet parodies, but there is no target that brings out their best quite like the Jedi universe.

Seth Green is that rare breed of child actor: one who's still working at 29. He made his feature-film debut at 7, playing opposite Jodie Foster and Rob Lowe in "Hotel New Hampshire." Five years later, he traded quips with Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show" after portraying the young Woody Allen in "Radio Days." Green's career took off in the late 1990s when he was cast as a super-mellow werewolf guitarist in TV's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," as Dr. Evil's troubled son in all three "Austin Powers" movies, and as a wannabe homeboy in "Can't Hardly Wait."

Seth Green slumps on a bench seat in a 1970s Winnebago that's parked inside of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios in Burbank. A nasty case of strep throat has him feeling low. But the fact that "Robot Chicken," the off-color stop-motion animated series Green created with Matthew Senreich was renewed for a seventh season, perks him up a bit. "We thought it was the same generation as us who grew up watching the same TV shows and eating the same cereal," says...

WHAT can I tell you about "Four Kings" that you won't already know? It premieres tonight at 8:30 on NBC. By 8:46, or thereabouts, you will understand everything. It's one of those they-move-in-together comedies. Here, in a twist for a sitcom on NBC, the characters are four single white guys in Manhattan. They are named Ben, Jason, Bobby and Barry. They are played, respectively, by Josh Cooke ("Committed"), Todd Grinnell (dunno), Shane McRae (dunno) and Seth Green (Seth Green).

Disney's family comedy "Old Dogs" stars Robin Williams and John Travolta as aging bachelors, lifelong friends and business partners who have to take care of a pair of kids, perhaps at the peril of the biggest deal they've ever made. Is this light family comedy a surprising place to find the likes of . . . Seth Green? "I don't know, I don't know what people think of me! If you look at my filmography, I'm all over the place," says the Seth Green of "Can't Hardly Wait" and "Rat Race."

Actor Seth Green has been on TV and in movies since age 7. Author James St. James got his first taste of the spotlight in his 20s as one of the major players in New York City's notorious Club Kids scene in the '80s. Until recently, Green's persona has been a triumph of substance over form, and St. James' has been a triumph of form over substance. The Sept. 5 release of "Party Monster," the fact-based tale of fabulousness gone murderous, represents a shift for both artists.
