If you need to add an extra bit of class to your movie, casting Morgan Freeman is always a good idea. Seth MacFarlane obviously agrees as Variety reports the Family Guy creator has cast the actor in a pivotal role in Ted 2.
There’s no news on the exact plot, but Freeman is being brought in to play an iconic civil rights lawyer who helps talking soft toy Ted with his legal problems.
Mark Wahlberg is also set to return John Bennett, with Amanda Seyfried playing the new female lead. Mila Kunis will also be in the movie, but she’ll apparently have a much smaller role than she did in the first film.
Production is already underway in Boston, with MacFarlane directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. It’s due out summer 2015.
