Ryan Reynolds, who has cameoed on Family Guy previously as a love interest of main character Peter Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and had a stint in MacFarlane's recent flick, Ted, will return to lend his voice to Fox's Family Guy once again — this time as the original son of God, a precursor to Jesus.

"He's God's previous attempt at an immaculate conception," says executive producer Mark Hentemann, reports EW. "His first son that didn't quite work out."

Reynolds will play the original son of God in the Christmas episode in Season 11, which starts on September 30, 2011. Also to cameo in the episode will be celebs Johnny Depp, Elizabeth Banks and Kellan Lutz.
