Now in production, Ted 2 has added Liam Neeson to its cast! Writer/director/star Seth MacFarlane, who previously worked with Neeson on this year’s A Million Ways to Die in the West, tweeted the following:
Yesterday Liam Neeson, today Morgan Freeman. Not a bad week for #Ted2.
— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) September 24, 2014
There’s no telling how large a role Neeson might have, especially if he was only filming for one day, but Freeman was recently said to have a large role as a civil rights lawyer who takes Ted on as a client.
Written by, directed by and starring MacFarlane, Ted 2 is 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 produces the live action/CG-animated comedy alongside Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber, as well as John Jacobs and Jason Clark.
Amanda Seyfried is taking the female lead this time around, but Mila Kunis is expected to appear as well.
Ted 2 hits the big screen on June 26, 2015.
