The new season of FOX’s “Family Guy” just might need a red carpet.

The season premiere of the animated series will feature “Hunger Games” and “30 Rock” actress Elizabeth Banks, while other episodes of season 11 of the series will feature the likes of Johnny Depp and Kellan Lutz, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Banks is set to voice the snobby wife of Lois’ ex-boyfriend Ross Fishman, and will try to climb Mt. Everest with her perfect family.

Executive producer Mark Hentemann said in the report that “The Fishmans look down their noses at the Griffins as these slobs. They’re super successful and they go on the most exotic vacations and they take on the greatest challenges… Peter picks up on his jealousy that he had in season 3 and says, ‘Well, if they’re going to do it, we’re gonna do it — and beat them.’”

The new season is set to begin on Sept. 30 on Fox.
