Seth MacFarlane is such a jokester, it’s hard to take anything he says seriously. But he may have just revealed when Ted 2 will be coming out.
While the timeline for a possible Passover 2015 release for Ted 2 certainly sounds plausible, it’s MacFarlane’s use of “Passover” and not “April” or “Spring” that raises eyebrows. Passover is a particularly important festival in the Jewish calendar. Wouldn’t releasing a movie as raunchy as Ted 2 at that time seem a little off? Then again, maybe that’s the point.

Once Seth MacFarlane is done hosting the Oscars in a couple weeks, he’ll move on to directing the feature follow-up to his 2012 hit Ted. That film will not be Ted 2, however.

For better or worse, Seth MacFarlane‘s Ted is exactly what you think it’s going to be. The story of a man who lives with his walking, talking, pot smoking teddy bear is crude, rude and incredibly funny. It’s also bursting at the seams with cameos and pop culture references much like MacFarlane’s popular TV show, Family Guy. However, the story all that comedy is built around is as familiar as they come. You’ve seen it a million times. Thankfully, MacFarlane’s film is so hilarious and filled with heart that you won’t really mind the obvious story and third act that, literally, ends up in left field. Read More »

He’s currently shooting Ted, an R-rated comedy about a man whose Christmas present from the 1970s, a talking teddy bear, comes to life and achieves fame as a foul-mouthed womanizer.

And while we already know the basic plot, a scooper over at Flixist has uncovered a few details that aren’t necessarily major, but give a great idea of where MacFarlane is going with this. These should be considered spoilers. And completely mental. Read More »
Giovanni Ribisi is rarely the headline star of a film, but his presence tends to make any film better.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane seems to agree. He’s just cast Ribisi in Ted, MacFarlane’s first feature film which stars Mark Wahlberg as a man whose childhood teddy bear comes to life. Mila Kunis was rumored to be in talks and that’s now been confirmed as well. Read more about the project and Ribisi’s role after the jump. Read More »
