Given the box-office success of Seth MacFarlane’s Ted, it’s no surprise that there has been plenty of talk about a potential sequel, and Mark Wahlberg has officially confirmed that the wheels are now in motion.
“There is a Ted 2,” says Wahlberg. “We’ve already locked a deal and they’re off writing now. I’ve never done a sequel before but I just have so much confidence in Seth. he’s such a talented, funny guy.”
And according to Wahlberg, fans of the little sweary furball won’t have to wait too long before they see him in action again.
“Actually, because Seth is hosting, Ted and I will be appearing at the Oscars,” reveals Wahlberg, before musing that Ted will probably need a little smoke of something before appearing on stage. “He can’t do it without it,” he chuckles. “It’s mandatory.”
