Kanye Performs on The Cleveland Show

As if performing on American Idol last Wednesday wasn't enough, Kanye West capped off a week of work at FOX in L.A. Thursday by sitting in on a table read of new animated sitcom The Cleveland Show.

"It was surprising to us that [he] was so into it that he came to the table [read], and wonderfully surprising how cool he was, how funny he was and how unassuming he was," says executive producer Mike Henry, who voices Cleveland Brown and other characters on the show. "He's just a great presence."

West then spent three hours in the studio Friday laying down his voice as not-so-mega-star rapper Kenny West.

"We knew Kanye was a big Family Guy fan because he invited [creator] Seth [MacFarlane] to his house a year or two ago," adds Henry. "And there was a mention on his blog when the spin-off was announced that he was excited about it. We knew he was a big fan and a lot of us are fans of his."
