Wahlberg To Star With Teddy Bear
Let’s face it, at first glance, this doesn’t look good on paper. Mark Wahlberg has signed up to star in Seth MacFarlane’s (that’s Family Guy‘s creator) new film Ted which will see him star opposite an animated teddy bear.
Wahlberg’s already proved that he can do comedy (easily being the best thing about The Other Guys), so that might be why he’s signed up to play opposite a walking CG-created bear voiced by MacFarlane himself.
The script will reportedly feature a little boy making a wish that his stuffed bear could come to life, only to have his wish granted. Years later and the boy is now and man and the teddy bear still his best friend. But the bear is a hard partying, hard drinking layabout who’s stopping the kid from growing up.
The film will be directed by MacFarlane who will also provide vocal duties for the bear (in what we imagine will be a little bit like Brian from Family Guy).
