It was previously revealed that Mark Wahlberg and Ted would make an appearance at the Oscars, but telecast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today that they will be presenters. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also brought online a new promo for the Oscars' tribute to the James Bond movie franchise which you can watch below.

"We are happy to make it possible for Mark and Ted to make their debut appearance on the Oscar stage," said Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. "And we won't deny that Ted used his pull with our host to get himself the booking."

Wahlberg and Ted starred in the hit summer comedy Ted, which is now the highest-grossing R-rated original comedy of all time.

"I'm excited to present an Oscar with Mark Wahlberg," said Ted. "I'm spending the next month learning to pronounce 'Quvenzhané.'"

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre™ at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
