Amanda Seyfried Takes Female Lead in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2


Amanda Seyfried has, according to Deadline, taken the female lead in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2. Apparently, Mila Kunis’ Lori Collins with either appear only briefly or not at all, which is said to be a wholly creative decision on the part of MacFarlane.

MacFarlane returns as writer, director and co-star of Ted 2, Universal and Media Rights Capital’s follow-up to the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time. Joined once again by star Mark Wahlberg and fellow Ted writers Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild, MacFarlane will also produce the live action/CG-animated comedy alongside Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber, as well as John Jacobs and Jason Clark.

Seyfried starred last year in the porn star biopic Lovelace, writer/director Justin Zackham’s comedy drama The Big Wedding and, as a voice, in 20th Century Fox’s animated adventure Epic. She’ll next star in MacFarlane’s second feature film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, hitting theaters May 30.

Ted 2, meanwhile, is slated to hit the big screen on June 26, 2015.
