The cast for Seth MacFarlane’s Ted just got a little bigger. The comedy’s roster features Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Adam Scott, and now according to Variety, Giovanni Ribisi has just joined the cast. The movie will mark MacFarlane’s directorial debut for the big screen. He’s best known for his work on Fox’s “Family Guy,” “The Cleveland Show,” and “American Dad.”
Ted centers on a a grown man (Wahlberg) whose childhood wish was for his cherished teddy bear to come to life. As a result of his desperation and faith, it eventually does but it turns into a pot-smoking, swearing nightmare. The bear will be CG-generated and voiced by MacFarlane himself.
Ribisi will play a man named Donny, who’s obsessed with Ted. We don’t know why he’s obsessed with him. Maybe it’s because he’s a bear, who can talk, and smokes weed? We would personally be afraid of such a thing but this is a movie.
Not only will MacFarlane direct and star in Ted, but he also co-wrote the screenplay with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. Is there anything that man can’t do?
