Universal Pictures has announced a June 26, 2015 release date for Ted 2. The comedy sequel currently doesn't have any competition as of yet, but it falls just between Disney's Inside Out on June 19 and Paramount's Terminator 5 on July 1.
Writer-director Seth MacFarlane revealed in August that he was aiming for a Passover 2015 release date, which would have been April 3, 2015. Since the original Ted was the highest-grossing R-rated comedy in history, taking in $394 million worldwide, the summer release date makes more sense than a spring debut.
Mark Wahlberg is returning to star as John Bennett, with Seth MacFarlane providing the voice of his talking teddy bear, Ted. Seth MacFarlane is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.
No story details have been confirmed as of yet. It is believed that production will begin next summer, after Seth MacFarlane's Western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West is released. »
The Family Guy creator, who wrote and voiced the lead character of Ted in the first movie, revealed on Twitter that the sequel should be in cinemas around Passover, which will fall in early April in 2015.
MacFarlane revealed the news when responding to a fan's question about when the movie will be unveiled.

However, the supporting cast featuring in the movie are yet to be confirmed.
The actor will star in Michael Bay's untitled follow-up to Transformers: Dark of the Moon as a single father and struggling inventor whose relationship with his daughter (Nicola Peltz) is central to the story.
During the same interview, Wahlberg spoke about his infamous appearance on The Graham Norton Show earlier this year, during which he appeared to be drunk.
Wahlberg's new film 2 Guns is released in the UK on August 16. Watch a trailer below: »
Dascha Polanco had two acting credits before joining Orange Is the New Black, and one of them was "Fan #2" on the short-lived series NYC 22. So is it safe to say that Jenji Kohan's Netflix darling is her big break? Yes. Yes, it is. We spoke to the very grateful Brooklyn native, who plays Litchfield's shy, manga-drawing inmate Daya, about auditioning in scrubs — straight from an overnight shift at a hospital; what she thinks of her character's cruel mother; and her affair with the show's only male heartthrob, John Bennett.I read that you were in scrubs for your audition, which at first I thought was to get into character because scrubs are kind of like prison clothes. But you were actually working at a hospital? Yeah, I was working as a manager in a hospital. So I did an overnight kind of thing and kept the scrubs on »

Matt McGorry did not go directly to jail. Instead, he started performing at just 11 years old, when a flair for card tricks and making little foam balls disappear led to a brief stint as a street magician. (“It’s funny — it didn’t seem weird at the time,” he told EW during a recent office visit. “But in retrospect, my parents really had a lot of trust in me.”)
From there, McGorry moved on to bigger and better things — New York City’s famous Laguardia performing arts high school, Emerson College, and an acting career both enhanced and stymied by »

No matter how far along you are in the series, Orange Is the New Black is most likely already one of your favorite new shows. You're not alone! It's a Vulture favorite this summer and we went ahead and compiled a list of random yet interesting Oitnb-related tidbits. Laura Prepon originally auditioned to play Piper. Instead, she ended up with the role of the more dangerous and alluring Alex. "She set the bar, when she auditioned for Piper," creator Jenji Kohan told Collider. "She’s such a great actress, but ultimately, I thought, 'Laura Prepon in prison? I don’t worry about her.'" Kohan and crew liked the audition so much that they tailored the role of Alex to her.Matt McGorry, who plays nice-guy guard John Bennett, is reaaaaaallly into body building.Really, really into it. Super into it. Into it enough that this is a video »
