Mila Kunis (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Adam Scott (Party Down) are in talks to join Mark Walhberg in Seth McFarlane’s (Family Guy) upcoming directorial debut, Ted. The R-rated comedy is currently budgeted at $65 million and will star Walhberg as a Boston man (Wahlberg) whose childhood stuffed animal/best friend has come to life and still continues to live with him 25 years later. McFarlane, who also co-wrote the film, will be voicing and providing the motion capture performance for the swearing, pot smoking, and delinquent teddy bear.
According to HeatVision, Kunis will be playing Walhberg’s girlfriend, who “wants their relationship to move to the next level and finally has enough of him living with his best friend Ted.” The always great Adam Scott will be playing her boss, who she turns to for comfort. Kunis can currently be seen in Black Swan. You can next see Scott reprising his role in Parks and Recreation next month, and 2011 looks like it will hopefully be his breakout year with starring roles in both My Idiot Brother and Friends With Kids.
