Mark Wahlberg, teddy bear circling Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut

Posted on

Having honed his buddy-comedy chops in The Other Guys, Mark Wahlberg is reportedly negotiating to star opposite a life-sized teddy bear in Ted, the R-rated directorial debut of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. Wahlberg will play a Boston everyman who made a wish as a child that his favorite stuffed animal could come to life. Now grown up, the bear, voiced by MacFarlane, is a foul-mouthed, lazy rabble-rouser and a drag on Wahlberg’s adult world.
