Mark Wahlberg has decided to befriend a bear in Seth MacFarlane's Ted

10.25.2010

Mark Wahlberg was weighing the pros and cons of taking the lead in Seth MacFarlane's life-sized teddy bear movie, TED.

Guess there were more pros since he's currently in negotiations to star.

According to Deadline, Wahlberg will play, "an average Boston guy, normal except for for the childhood wish he made that his teddy bear could come to life--and it did. Years later, the boy is an adult, and the bear is still his best friend. But the bear, a carousing, irresponsible slacker, is getting in the way of his buddy committing to adulthood and the girl he loves." MacFarlane will provide the vocals for the bear which will be brought to life using CG. The film will be live action.

MacFarlane wrote the script with his fellow FAMILY GUY writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.

I'm very interested in seeing Wahlberg alongside this pot smoking CG bear. I know the FAMILY GUY humor might be wearing thin for some, but this could actually be really amusing.

Anyone else open to this film?

Extra Tidbit: Maybe Wahlberg should team-up with this bear.

Currently I'm not on crack. But everyone seems to be complaining that Family Guy has lost it's appeal. I still love it.

Say hello to your Teddy for me.

Really looking forward to it! Say what you want about Family Guy, but the brilliant & underrated American Dad shows me that Seth still has it.

You hit the nail on the head, American Dad has been better than Family Guy for the past 2 years.

Maybe I'm not thinking clearly, but to me this totally sounds like an A+ recipe.

Me & Paul

So far, Ted look promising. I am open to seeing it. The trailer for McFarlane's similar Paul looks outstanding. Wahlberg and Seth could be funny. Pegg and Seth are funny. Ted and Paul premiere in separate years. So, audiences won't see the same McFarlane movie twice in 2011. These two films look like fairly good times. With comedy, a person must kinda decide beforehand whether he laughs and has fun, or not. Perhaps,for Ted, Seth can try being dirtier than Fox usually allows him. That approach

That approach worked for Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy. Also, Tim the Bear could make a cameo as an unexpected clever reference.

No thanks.

I bet Seth MacFarlane will give himself a musical number (or 5). Sounds no different than Alvin, Yogi, and the new Smurfs movie. I'll pass.

Even though I hate family guy, this sounds interesting. I can't wait to see how Wahlberg interacts with a teddy bear.

Nice to know the Family Guy fans are so easy to please it doesn't even require effort.

awesome

this sounds completely awesome. I think Wahlberg has great comedic chops, and Seth MacFarlane is a very funny guy. Good times!
