Seth MacFarlane’s First Movie Will Feature Mark Wahlberg and a CG Teddy Bear
Mark Wahlberg is going to be starring in Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s first movie, Ted.
Wahlberg will play an average Boston guy who’s normal except for the childhood wish he made that his teddy bear could come to life — and it did. Years later, the boy is an adult, and the bear is still his best friend. But the bear, a carousing, irresponsible slacker, is getting in the way of his buddy committing to adulthood and the girl he loves. MacFarlane will provide the voice of the bear, which will be brought to life through CG in an otherwise live action format.
Sounds a whole lot like Wilfred, the new show with Elijah Wood that FX just picked up.
