Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Shaquille O'Neal and Dwyane Wade to Guest-Voice on Hit Animated Series

Kanye West Returns on Season Premiere of THE CLEVELAND SHOW Airing Sunday, September 26, on FOX

Basketball superstars Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Shaquille O'Neal and Dwyane Wade will lend their voice talents to an upcoming episode of THE CLEVELAND SHOW airing this winter on FOX.

In the "A Short Story and a Tall Tale" episode, CLEVELAND (Mike Henry) and DONNA (Sanaa Lathan) celebrate Valentine's Day with a trip to Los Angeles after scoring courtside seats to the all-star basketball game featuring Garnett, Howard, James, Nash, Nowitzki, O'Neal and Wade. Caught up in the excitement, Cleveland gets rowdy and talks smack to the players from the sideline throughout the game. The basketball champs, feeling hurt, seek revenge by paying a surprise visit to Stoolbend and putting Cleveland in his place.

Additional guest stars stopping by during the sophomore season of THE CLEVELAND SHOW include Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Tony Hawk, Robert Rodriguez and cast members from the hit series GLEE. Also, T-Pain, will.i.am, Carl Reiner, David Lynch, Will Forte and Jamie Kennedy will have reccurring roles this season.

In the season premiere episode, airing Sunday, Sept. 26 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Kanye West makes a return guest voice appearance as KENNY WEST, a single dad and struggling rapper whom Cleveland takes under his wing in an attempt to prove his own prowess after receiving some surprising news about his childhood basketball camp nemesis. Together, Cleveland and Kenny write, record and perform a new hit single, "Be-Cleve in Yourself." The track burns up the charts and ignites Kenny's new rap career, but leaves Cleveland behind in the dust.

THE CLEVELAND SHOW was the highest-rated new scripted half-hour series among Adults 18-34 and Teens in its first season. The animated series features the voice talents of Mike Henry, Sanaa Lathan, Reagan Gomez, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jason Sudeikis and Seth MacFarlane, as well as Arianna Huffington in a recurring role. THE CLEVELAND SHOW follows everyone's favorite soft-spoken neighbor as he settles into married life with his high school sweetheart and their blended family in his hometown of Stoolbend, VA.

THE CLEVELAND SHOW is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane, Rich Appel and Mike Henry are executive producers and co-creators of the series.
