Seth MacFarlane, the man behind hit comedy series Family Guy and American Dad!, is set to direct Ted, a surreal comedy movie about "a man being forced to redefine his friendship with an anthropomorphic teddy bear that comes alive after his childhood wish comes true."
Ted will star Joel McHale, Mila Kunis, and Mark Wahlberg. McHale will play Rex, a boss who repeatedly hits on his employee (Kunis). She in turn wants to marry her boyfriend (Wahlberg), who first has to deal with the anthropomorphic womanizing teddy bear who is ruining his life. The bear will be voiced by MacFarlane.
Ted, a Universal Pictures film, is expected to reach cinemas in 2012.
