A lot of things about Seth MacFarlane‘s 2012 film Ted could be considered a surprise. The fact it was such a huge hit for one. Ted grossed $218 million domestic against a budget of $50 million and became one of the top 10 highest grossing R rated comedies of all time. Personally though, the biggest surprise was the way MacFarlane used Flash Gordon in the film. Both Ted and Mark Wahlberg’s character, John, were fans of the cult ’80s sci-fi flick and the director cast Flash himself, Sam Jones, in a hilarious, extended cameo.
Well MacFarlane is back in Boston, filming Ted 2 for release June 26, 2015 and star Mark Wahlberg himself released the first set photo. In it, we see that Flash is still a big part of John’s life. Check out one of the first Ted 2 set photos below. Read More »

Normally, movies that don’t make $100 million worldwide don’t get sequels. And they definitely don’t get TV shows. But Mark Wahlberg isn’t your typical actor/producer. He’s now teamed up with Paramount TV to bring his 2007 film, Shooter, to TNT as a regular series.
The film, which itself was based on the novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter, follows a decorated but retired military sniper who takes one last job. However, he’s framed for murder on the job and goes on the run. Read more about the Shooter TV show below. Read More »

The studio is setting that film’s two stars, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, to take the leads in the comedy Daddy’s Home, about two men battling for the love and attention of their children.
