Dennis Haysbert Joins Both Dead Rising and Ted 2


Dennis Haysbert has lined up two major projects today as TheWrap reports that the “24” star has signed on for both the Crackle-produced video game adaptation Dead Rising and Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2.

Based on the popular Capcom zombie survival video game, Dead Rising will be directed by Zach Lipvosky and takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy.

Ted 2, meanwhile, is a followup to MacFarlane’s 2012 hit. Haysbert joins a cast that includes the returning Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane and Mila Kunis along with newcomers Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Barth and Morgan Freeman.
