Amanda Seyfriend will be the new female lead in Seth MacFarlane's Ted sequel

02.24.2014

It looks like Amanda Seyfried is moving in with Mark Wahlberg's John Bennett in the sequel to Seth MacFarlane's huggable-yet-foulmouthed talking teddy bear sequel, TED 2. Seyfriend will be joining the sequel as the female lead, which would suggest she's the love interest for Wahlberg this time out, leaving original star Mila Kunis out of the picture. It's said she may "only appear in a tiny role, if at all." The reason for the swap out is being reported as a "creative decision that MacFarlane decided to take with the plotting of the sequel."

Seyfriend is currently starring in MacFarlane's A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST, which hits theaters this summer, so I'm guessing they had a good working relationship to help win her the role in TED 2. I wasn't the biggest fan of the first film, but I know I'm in the minority. That said, I don't have an issue with Seyfried stepping into the lead. Between her and Kunis, they're both requisite hotties and have both proven to be able to handle a comedic role, so either will work. I guess it's nice to have some new scenery regardless and it's not the first time a new female lead has been cast in a franchise.

TED 2 is set to crack up theaters on June 26, 2015.

SkyNet nailed it down below. I do hope that the movie is just another story about Ted and a week or so in his life and that it isn't, like, a female version of Ted gets wished into existence or something like that. One talking animal in this universe only, if you please. If Seyfried made the same wish on the same night and has been keeping her bear a secret for 20 years and now Ted has a new friend...that'll suck. Just more dirty jokes, bong hits, gay beat-up clubs, etc. and we happy.

I'm fine with this swap. Kunis is overrated in my opinion. I think Amanda will be great both as eye candy and an actress.

I can not stand when a movie spends the entire plot getting a guy and a girl together... from start to finish we see how the guy and girl are perfect for each other and we root for them to he together... to than have the sequel take all of that and shit on it by not having that relationship survive.

Amanda Seyfried is hot, I give her points for balancing meaty indies like Lovelace with commercial fair, but Ted was awful and it pains me that it made so much money. A Million Ways To Die looks head and shoulders above better. I guess this sequel was inevitable and I understand MacFarlane's decision, given how thin the plot of the first one was- its unfunny-ness not withstanding.
