Amanda Seyfried Set as Female Lead in TED Sequel; Mila Kunis to Have Reduced Role in Follow-Up

     February 24, 2014


Now that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is putting the finishing touches on his second directorial feature, A Million Ways to Die in the West, he’s starting to put the pieces together for the Ted sequel—and a casting shakeup is in the works.  Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried is set to play the female lead in Ted 2, with Mila Kunis only expected to reprise her role as Lori in a “tiny appearance”, if at all.  This is due to a creative decision on behalf of MacFarlane and co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild and not some falling out between MacFarlane and Kunis, so it sounds like Mark Wahlberg’s John will likely be getting a new love interest in the follow-up.

Though Seyfried has been doing more dramatic or genre-oriented work in the past few years, fans of Mean Girls will remember she’s also a pretty skilled comedic actress.  She also has a supporting role in A Million Ways to Die in the West, so she and MacFarlane already have a rapport.  Ted 2 is slated for release on June 26, 2015, while A Million Ways opens this May.

    My excitement just dropped a notch or two. Im not the biggest fan of Seyfried.

      Completely agree. This sucks. Mila was perfect, plus she’s great friends with McFarlane and has done Meg Griffin’s voice on Family Guy since like 99 or 2000. Oh well, maybe they’ll make Seyfried unlikable and bitchy, which she gives the vibe of anyway lol.

    She made something special in the end of Ted and bringing her for tiny role and make Seyfried a new girl for Wahlburger is stupid and lame. It ruins Ted 1.

    Ok, McFarlane bangs Seyfried right ?

    What?! Part of that movie that made it awesome was how much love he had for Mila’s character. John is all of a sudden not going to like her because the creators can’t get along?

    This gotta be ted’s new squeeze

    • Janet

      It’s what a many are theorizing.

  • ScratStitch

    Unless she’s a love interest for Ted, this COMPLETELY sucks. :(

  • Mezmero

    Mila is a good actress so maybe she has other films to do. It won’t change my thoughts on film that was a about a living teddy bear lmao. How long did you think it would last anyway? I’m still in and Seyfried would be a nice trade in for me.

  • Matt1

    Yeah, well Deadline also reported on Space Jam 2 starring LeBron James and that turned out to be bogus. Soooo…

  • sense11

    she is just the best

  • hallan

    Maybe Seyfrieds Mila’s adopted sister and she’s staying at her place until Mila gets back from overseas.

    mila kunis’s ass should retire. Because that ass just will. not. quit.

  • LEM

    Good fit since she looks like a bug eyed doll who was wished to life.

    I kind of hope its a love interest for Ted and not John…hopefully its something in the lines of them going on a vacation or something and thats why Lori is only in it briefly.
