We reported earlier this month that Morgan Freeman is playing an iconic defense attorney, who was hired by Ted (Seth MacFarlane) to get him over some legal issues. This is the first we've heard about Liam Neeson being cast, but it seems likely that he will only have a cameo appearance. Our report from two weeks ago revealed that director Seth MacFarlane is populating most of his supporting cast with cameos from A-list celebrities and other pop culture icons, in roles they have never portrayed before.

The sequel's cast also includes Mark Wahlberg, »

Ted 2 and Dead Rising add 24's Dennis Haysbert

18 September 2014 10:51 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once he was President Palmer in 24. Now, Dennis Haysbert is tackling Ted 2 and Dead Rising...

Dennis Haybsert, one time President Palmer in 24, has joined a couple of high profile projects.

Firstly up, he's the latest addition to the cast of Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2. He joins returnees Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, and other new additions Morgan Freeman, Amanda Seyfried and Jessica Barth. His role in that one is said to be a small one.

Then, he'll also be in the cast for the adaptation of the videogame Dead Rising, that Crackle is behind. That one's being directed by Zach Lipvosky, and will get a digital release in the Us first, before getting a global rollout.

Haysbert's role in both productions is unclear. But if you're looking for a piece of his work to check out while we wait to find out more, he's excellent in the wonderful Far From Heaven. »

'Ted 2' Photo Reveals Mark Wahlberg's Flash Gordon Motorcycle!

12 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Are you ready for more love to be bestowed upon the 1980 Flash Gordon in Ted 2? Returning star Mark Wahlberg has tweeted the first image of himself on set, seated on a custom red Indian Scout motorcycle that has been adorned with the semi-iconic 80s Flash Gordon logo.

Take a look:

Ready to ride? Mark on the set of Ted 2 with a new #IndianScoutpic.twitter.com/EjuKUxnIYh

Mark Wahlberg (@mark_wahlberg) September 10, 2014

The original Ted was rife with Flash Gordon jokes and references, with Mark Wahlberg's John Bennett being a huge fan of the seminal sci-fi flop. The running gag culminates with a cameo appearance from that film's leading man Sam J. Jones making a rare big screen appearance. The actor is currently not listed as part of the cast for Ted 2, but looking at John's new ride, a surprise return is certainly not out of the question. »

'Ted 2' Lands William Shatner Cameo

31 July 2014 10:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more memorable moments in the raucous 2012 comedy Ted is where Flash Gordon star Sam J. Jones appears in a cameo as himself. It seems the sequel Ted 2 will have a similar scene featuring William Shatner as himself.

The actor gets annoyed when attendees keep asking him Star Trek questions. It's stated that there was also a recent Boston casting call for the sequel, with the production seeking a number of extras wearing superhero costumes.

Ted stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are reprising their roles as John Bennett and his girlfriend Lori Collins, although Mila Kunis is said to have a smaller role in the sequel. We reported in February that Amanda Seyfried signed on to play the female lead, »

Amanda Seyfried Reunites With Seth MacFarlane For Ted 2

24 February 2014 12:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It looks like Seth MacFarlane and Amanda Seyfried had a good time working together on the funnyman’s upcoming comedy Western A Million Ways To Die In The West, as the actress has now signed on for MacFarlane’s next film, sequel Ted 2. Deadline reports that Seyfried will play the lead female role in the film, with Ted star Mila Kunis only returning for a brief part.

Though it’s certainly sad news that Kunis won’t be as involved in Ted 2 as she was in the original film (apparently due to creative decisions made by MacFarlane, not anything more scandalous), Seyfried’s involvement means that the comedian is simply substituting one strong actress for another.

Seyfried has wowed critics and audiences throughout her career with leading roles in a variety of challenging projects, from Tom Hooper’s ambitious, acclaimed Les Misérables to provocative biopic Lovelace. Given how »

'Ted 2' Adds Amanda Seyfried

24 February 2014 11:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Amanda Seyfried is set to reunite with her A Million Ways to Die in the West director/co-star Seth MacFarlane for the Universal Pictures comedy sequel Ted 2. No character details were given, but the actress is said to be playing the female lead.

Mark Wahlberg is reprising his Ted role as John Bennett, a grown man who lives with his foul-mouthed teddy bear that came to life when he was a child. Mila Kunis, who played John's girlfriend Lori Collins in the original, is said to be returning in a tiny role, that may end up being cut from the film. The decision to give Mila Kunis a lesser role comes strictly from a creative standpoint, and not any animosity between Seth MacFarlane and the actress, who still voices Meg on his Fox animated TV series Family Guy.
