Mark Wahlberg will star as a Boston resident whose best friend is a large talking teddy bear from his youth in Ted, the first live action film from Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane. Wahlberg's character wishes that his teddy bear will come alive as a child and years latest he's stuck hanging around with his childhood wish.
Wahlberg showed his funny side in last summer's The Other Guys, which grossed more than $150 million worldwide. The Oscar-nominated actor will next be seen in The Fighter opposite Amy Adams and Christian Bale. There is already a healthy amount of award season buzz surrounding the film.
