Mark Wahlberg will still have his talking teddy bear in Ted 2, but it looks like he may have a new love interest. According to Deadline, Amanda Seyfried will be the movie’s lead female, replacing Mila Kunis.
At the end of the summer 2012 hit, Mark and Mila’s characters got married, and the site reports that she still may return for a small role. No word yet on what the Lovelace actress’ role will be, but Seth MacFarlane will be returning to direct.
The Family Guy creator and Ashton Kutcher’s girlfriend reportedly remain close, and the casting decision is nothing more than for creative reasons regarding the plot. In fact, Mila still voices the character, Meg, on Seth’s hit Fox show.
Ted was the highest grossing, R-rated movie of 2012.
