Seth MacFarlane may be known for his cartoon comedy prowess via his onslaught of Fox television shows, but the Family Guy creator is now trying his hand at live-action via a film called Ted. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett, a man who made a childhood wish that his teddy bear would come to life. Unfortunately, he is all grown up now and he must deal with the consequences. Classic stuff.
Other cast members include Mila Kunis, Giovanni Ribisi, Patrick Warburton, and Joel McHale.
This will be MacFarlane’s first foray into the realm of live-action since 2007′s The Winner which was a one season television show that starred Children’s Hospital actor Rob Corddry. If this proves to be a box office success, there’s no telling what it will do for the man behind much of Fox’s Sunday night lineup as the producer will likely devote more time to theatrical offerings. Who knows? Maybe this could be a stepping stone to a Family Guy movie. I guess we will find out on July 13.
