Nia Long Books “Family Guy” Spinoff

Move over Judy Jetson
. The unbelievably sexy Nia Long has signed on to play Cleveland's rebellious stepdaughter Roberta on Fox's heavily-buzzed Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show. 

Last seen on Big Shots-the Mouse House's failed attempt at a male Sex and the City-Long will costar with actress Sanaa Lathan in the project. Lathan. will voice the role of Donna, the title character's wife and Roberta's mother.

I have adored Miss Nia since her emotionally raw turn as Kat Speakes on Guiding Light in the early 90's and couldn't be happier to see her back on the small screen.

Long recently appeared on stage at the BET Awards with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Morris Chestnut to commemorate their groundbreaking film Boyz n the Hood and she never looked better.
