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.
