Ted 2 Is Bringing Back A Key Supporting Player

16 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Two years after the original made almost $550,000,000 at the worldwide box office, Ted 2 is still thundering forward. Leads Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane have both committed to returning for a second round. Amanda Seyfried as Mila Kunis' replacement, and now, at least one supporting player from Ted 1 is ready to come back too: Patrick Warburton. Hardcore Ted fans likely remember Patrick Warburton played Mark Wahlberg.s co-worker Guy, who was in a guy relationship with Ryan Reynolds. Yes, seriously. This actually happened. That Patrick Warburton would be one of the first people to board Ted 2 should surprise no one. The former Seinfeld star (Feels like an Arby.s night!) voices police officer Joe Swanson on Family Guy, and by all accounts, he gets along great with creator Seth MacFarlane. So, really, why wouldn.t he come back? It.s just win-win all around. According to Deadline, as »

Jay Z and Beyoncé Get Nominated to Take the Ice Bucket Challenge at the Same Time

21 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The Als ice bucket challenge celebrity fun continues - Will Smith is the latest star to get splashed with a bucket of cold water! He had the help of his daughter, Willow, who poured a ton of chilly water on her dad. But what's more exiting than the subsequent wet t-shirt moment is who Will decided to nominate. He said, "I want Jay Z and Beyoncé to do it at the same time - that's my challenge." Jay Z was previously nominated by Mark Wahlberg's son Michael and Beyoncé by Drake and Kevin McHale, but they both remain on the list of celebrities that haven't taken the ice bucket challenge yet. We especially appreciate that Will specified he'd like them to take the challenge together, given all the recent rumors of relationship trouble. Your move, Jay and Bey. »

Mark Wahlberg's Cute Kids Are the Best Part of His Ice Bucket Challenge

21 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Mark Wahlberg and his family got in on the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, and the actor posted an adorable video to his Facebook page on Thursday. After being nominated by his Pain and Gain costar Dwayne Johnson, Mark and his wife, Rhea Durham, made sure to include their three cute kids while taking the challenge (and for the record, they are definitely budding stars themselves). There's seriously so much to love about this video; first, Mark says, "I can't do this with my Jordans on," and throws his sneakers, then his kids nominate Jay Z and Shailene Woodley, and then his youngest son, Brendan, almost gets stuck in his ice bucket - plus, there's a very special Marky Mark-esque shirtless moment at the end. Watch Mark and his family's funny challenge video below. Post by Mark Wahlberg. »

Cuckoo: why swapping one star for another doesn't always work

21 August 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC3 sitcom replaced Andy Samberg with Taylor Lautner, but as Two and a Half Men and Midsomer Murders have proven, TV shows rarely survive a serious personnel change

If youve been watching BBC3s Cuckoo, youll have noticed that series two isnt quite as good as series one. This is mainly down to personnel change. When it first arrived on our screens in 2012, Cuckoo was a showcase for Andy Samberg, the dazzling breakout Saturday Night Live star who was responsible for all those Lonely Island videos and the Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals sketch. Samberg was a star on the rise when he made Cuckoo, a fact demonstrated by the Golden Globe he won earlier this year.

Now, however, Samberg has been replaced by Taylor Lautner. To put it as politely as possible, Lautner has a vastly different skillset to Samberg. Sure, he has also won awards, but those »

Mark Wahlberg Might Save You From The Bp Oil Spill

20 August 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It should be no surprise to anyone that there’s a Bp oil spill movie in development. It’s primo subject material in that it hits all the necessary check marks for any “based on a true story” event movie. It’s timely – it was a mere four years ago the Deepwater Horizon oil rig blew, seeping a small ocean of oil into the Gulf. It’s exciting – the spill first stemmed from an explosion, which certainly perked up Hollywood’s ears — if Hollywood is a sucker for one thing, it’s non-fiction violence. Exhibit A through E: Twelve Years a Slave, The Hurt Locker, Titanic, Braveheart and Schindler’s List. It’s just as relevant today as it was in 2010 – did you know that the plugged-up well may still be leaking oil into the Atlantic? Deepwater Horizon already has its director in J.C. Chandor (All is Lost) and screenwriter in Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z) and »

Patrick Warburton Returns for 'Ted 2'

20 August 2014 4:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Patrick Warburton has signed on to reprise his role as Guy from the 2012 hit comedy Ted in the upcoming sequel Ted 2.

In the original movie, Guy was one of John McNamara's (Mark Wahlberg) co-workers, but it isn't clear yet if Guy's "silent partner" Jared, played by Ryan Reynolds, will also be back for the sequel.

No story details have been confirmed at this time, but we reported in February that Amanda Seyfried has signed on to play the female lead. Mila Kunis, who played John's girlfriend Lori in the first movie, is coming back to reprise her role, but she will have a much smaller part in the sequel.

Seth MacFarlane will once again provide the voice of Ted, along with directing the sequel from a script he co-wrote with Ted collaborators Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. It isn't clear when production will begin on the sequel.

Patrick Warburton Will Be Coming Back for Seth MacFarlane's 'Ted 2'

20 August 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As one of the few people who gave a positive review of Seth MacFarlane's western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, I'm absolutely still looking forward to Ted 2, the sequel to the "Family Guy" creator's 2012 raunchy comedy about a grown man and his talking teddy bear that he's had since childhood. The film is set for release on June 26th, 2015 with Mark Wahlberg back in the lead, MacFarlane voicing the title stuffed animal, and Amanda Seyfried taking a female lead role (with Mila Kunis likely not back in a large capacity). Now Deadline reports another character will be back too with Patrick Warburton returning. Warburton is a regular voice on "Family Guy" as Peter Griffin's paraplegic neighbor Joe, and in Ted he played one of Wahlberg's friends at the car rental office. It was an amusing supporting role, one that actually featured him falling »

Patrick Warburton Back For ‘Ted’ Sequel

20 August 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Patrick Warburton has signed on to reprise his role in the Seth MacFarlane-directed sequel Ted 2. He’ll return as Guy, the co-worker of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg). Warburton, repped by 3 Arts and ICM, has a long history with MacFarlane, including Family Guy. Unclear at this point is whether his silent partner, played by Ryan Reynolds, will be back for the sequel. Maybe I’m a dreamer, but I got the feeling those two crazy kids were going to make it.

20 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star in a new thriller from Lionsgate's Summit Entertainment called Deepwater Horizon.

The explosion caused the largest accidental oil spill in human history and was the biggest environmental disaster in U.S. history.

The story will be adapted from a New York Times article called “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hour,” which "highlights the courage of those who worked on the oil rig when it blew, killing 11 and injuring 16 others."

According to Deadline, Wahlberg would take on the role of the No. 2 manager on the oil rig, and the film will give audiences an account of what happened behind-the-scenes in the 48 hours leading up to and the day of the disastrous explosion.
