Not with artistic discretion like a geriatric Daniel Day-Lewis, but purely with an eye to how much he would be paid for the least amount of work.

We absolutely can’t wait to see Ted. It’s the story of Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) a regular guy who falls in love with a girl (Mila Kunis). The thing is, he’s constantly dogged by a rather special friend – a hard-drinking, pot-smoking teddy bear that came to life as a result of a childhood wish and just won’t leave.
