He looks like a less attractive version of Dean Cain who is part Japanese. I thought this annoying guy would have some Asian in him.

Well in “Family Guy 100th episode special” he does refer how he went from being a poor Vietnamese immigrant to a succesful caucasian man!

*irony*

Looks like English actor Nathaniel Parker.

Ardor February 8, 2017 at 5:56 pm

He’s more attractive than Dean Cain for me.

And Dean still looks much more Asian than him. Lol.

Definitely looks Irish.

gel August 13, 2015 at 2:59 pm

Yes, agree!

Capricious October 11, 2015 at 12:11 am

But I still wouldn’t be surprised if he had Japanese/Asian ancestry.

Could Mayflower Seth pass for a brother of Cheryl Cole’s?

He has no Irish in him he is primarily English Scottish and Welsh it’s been proven not all Americans have Irish in them even though lots of Americans have Irish blood.

Family Guy is an overrated show.

Shawn January 13, 2014 at 12:51 am

British-American.

Daron January 10, 2014 at 5:58 pm

Not a lot of WASP people have dark hair and dark eyes. He must have some Native American in his family.

ashash January 10, 2014 at 9:27 pm

There are plenty with dark hair and dark eyes.

follers January 11, 2014 at 1:57 am

Once the blue eye virus came in 6000 years ago or whenever from Bulgaria, none were spared.

WTF June 24, 2014 at 11:55 am

so now any brunette person with brown eyes is part native american???!!! lmfao the shit i see on here. it’s like a fuckin comedy show. stupid ass people should not reproduce, js.

none April 29, 2013 at 11:23 pm

thought with the name seth he was jewish, especially with all the references to jews in the series.

nnnnn April 29, 2013 at 11:36 pm

WASP oft use hebraish names, like David, Sarah, even
Abraham (Lincoln wasn’t Jewish). You can’t recognize
habraish origin in names like Tomaso, Davide or Paolo,
cuz they are “modificated”.

nnnnn April 29, 2013 at 11:43 pm

O’k, but Broussard doesn’t live in
1700. Why is he Israel Isayah?

nnnnn April 30, 2013 at 1:01 am

Devoted christs and “Israel”. A very interesting
theory
