Morgan Freeman Joins 'Ted 2'
He will reportedly play a civil rights attorney...
The voice of God will soon be talking to a foul-mouthed teddy bear.
Variety is reporting that screen legend Morgan Freeman is joining the sequel to Ted, Seth MacFarlane's uproarious comedy starring a vulgar stuffed animal who is magically brought to life, only to live a lazy drug-addled existence with his childhood friend John (Mark Wahlberg).Freeman would reportedly play an iconic civil rights attorney who's introduced when Ted is experiencing legal troubles.
The film's plot is being kept tightly under wraps, but it will reportedly feature a number of A-list celebrity appearances.
Ted 2 re-teams MacFarlane and Wahlberg, with Mila Kunis being replaced as the love interest by MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West co-star Amanda Seyfried. The Family Guy creator is again writing, directing and starring in the film as the voice of Ted.
The first Ted was a record-breaking success, earning over $500 million at the global box office and cementing MacFarlane as a major Hollywood player beyond just television.
The sequel is expected to reach cinemas in mid-2015.
