25 March 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ted 2 won't be released until the summer, but it looks like the ball is already rolling on the third instalment of the comedy series.

Sam Jones, aka Flash Gordon, who made a cameo in the original Seth MacFarlane film and returns for the second, spilled the beans when he revealed that he "just signed on" for the third film.

Speaking to Comicbook.com, Jones said: "Ted 2 comes out June 26. I just signed on for Ted 3.

"We're moving onwards and upwards, it's wonderful. It's a great adventure at this time in my life," he added.

Jones wasn't able to divulge more information on the film, saying: "We haven't filmed Ted 3 yet."

Ted 2 sees the MacFarlane-voiced stuffed bear having to prove to a court of law that he is human in order to maintain custody of his newborn child.

Mark Wahlberg is back as Ted's hapless friend John Bennett, »

Damian Wayne To Be "Arrow" Villain?

4 March 2015 7:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Like "Buffy" or "Smallville," The CW's "Arrow" has been a show where each season has been dominated by a 'Big Bad,' a single master villain whose machinations drive much of the events of each season.

In the first it was Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), the second was Deathstroke (Manu Bennett), and the current third season has been using Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable) albeit sparingly. Now it appears the villain of the fourth has been revealed.

TV Line reports that the season three finale will introduce a "major, formidable, fierce new foe" who will unleash a reign of terror that will carry on well into the next season.

Said character is being dubbed 'Damian Dark' internally, but the speculation is that the character will be this universe's interpretation of Damian Wayne - the grandson of Ra's al Ghul. Said character will likely Not include the connection of him being »

3 March 2015 1:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As Dancing with the Stars enters its 20th season in just two weeks, one very important question has yet to be answered: Who will dance alongside Witney Carson, the winner of last season's mirror-ball trophy? Many have speculated that The Bachelor's Chris Soules is a contender for that last spot in the DWTS cast, but the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, has been very vocal about his lack of any inherent musicality. (Remember when he rapped? Game though he was, it still may have been the most embarrassing thing to happen on a season in which one contestant had a »

See a Real-Life 'Ted' in These Cute Valentine's Day Photos

2 March 2015 5:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

No, there's not a real-life sentient talking teddy bear out there making dirty jokes and obscene gestures, but an Egyptian photographer named Hossam Atef has shared his otherwise equivalent to the title character from the Seth MacFarlane movie Ted. That would make Atef the real-life John Bennett -- Mark Wahlberg's role opposite the MacFarlane-voiced bear, both of whom return this summer in the sequel Ted 2. In images Atef posted to Behance, he and his much-larger teddy can be seen sharing a non-romantic Valentine's Day date as best buds. Although the photo spread is titled "Tedd," there doesn't seem to be any indication that it's inspired by the movie. Atef introduces the pics by promoting being alone and treating yourself. That implies that...

Seth MacFarlane sued over Ted talking bottle opener

27 February 2015 7:44 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ted creator Seth MacFarlane is being sued over film merchandise

Michael Cram, the inventor of a talking bottle opener, claims that the movie's promotional products - specifically the talking Ted bottle opener - infringe his copyright.

Cram, who has merchandise partnerships with the likes of Nascar and the NFL, claims that he created the no-button bottle opener and the talking beer mug.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he claims that MacFarlane stole his idea for a talking bottle opener, which was sold along with special edition Ted DVDs.

Cram has a licensing deal with MacFarlane's Family Guy and therefore claims that the film's creator is well aware of the product being his intellectual property.

Ted 2 is being released on June 26.

Mark Wahlberg returns as John Bennett in the film, while MacFarlane voices Ted and performs motion capture for the character.

Arrow Ep. 3.14 “The Return” brings us back to a painfully familiar place

19 February 2015 8:54 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Arrow Season 3, Episode 14 “The Return”

Written by Marc Guggenheim & Erik Oleson

Directed by Dermott Downs

Airs Wednesdays at 9pm Et on The CW

Remember season one of Arrow? The early episodes, the ones that featured a lot of Thea and Quentin being endlessly cranking and inebriated? Where Tommy Merlyn’s whiny attitude infected every corner of the show? Well, “The Returned” is here to remind those who forgot, an hour that wallows in the pitiful world of early Arrow episodes, only coming to life in the time it spends in the present – and even there, the return of Deathstroke isn’t quite as entertaining or resonant as one would hope it to be.

There’s really just too much on the table in “The Return”, whipping back and forth between the past and the present, too married to its flashback scenes and trying to marry them to Oliver’s present journey, »

'Arrow': Flashback In Starling

18 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"The Return" episode of "Arrow," airing Wednesday night on The CW, has a host of double meanings.

For Oliver Queen, it equates to going back to Lian Yu, the deserted island he spent (almost?) five years on, and facing off with Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). For other characters though, like Paul Blackthorne's Captain Quentin Lance, it's stepping back in time for a flashback sequence, back when Lance was doing a poor job of coping with the (first) death of Sara.

"It was interesting because it was back to 'angry Lance,' as I call him, sort of that Season ...

‘Arrow’ Sneak Peek: The Return of Deathstroke Puts Oliver and Thea in the Crosshairs (Exclusive)

18 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In last week’s “Arrow,” Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) tasked Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Thea Queen (Willa Holland) with conquering their fears in order to face Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) and his deadly League of Assassins, sending them to the island of Lian Yu.

The desolate landscape that forged Oliver into the show’s titular hero is now used by Argus as a supermax prison for The Arrow’s most dangerous foes — among them, Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke (Manu Bennett), the man responsible for murdering Oliver and Thea’s mother. In Variety‘s exclusive preview of the Feb. 18 episode, aptly titled “The Return,” the duo come face to face with their old enemy, and it’s safe to say that it’s not a particularly friendly reunion.

Elsewhere in the hour, a flashback takes us back to when Oliver and Maseo (guest star Karl Yune) returned to Starling »
