Morgan Freeman is the latest celebrity to join the Ted 2 cast.
According to The Wrap, the actor will play Ted’s civil rights lawyer who helps him with his legal woes. Seth MacFarlane will return to produce, write and voice the foul-mouthed bear and Mark Wahlberg will also return as his childhood best friend. Actress Amanda Seyfried has also joined the cast for the sequel.
Ted debuted in June of 2012 to highly impressive numbers with worldwide box-office earnings of $549.4 million. The film went on to earn the titles of highest-grossing R-rated film of the year as well as the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time.
Although Ted faced some legal issues along the way, it’s clear they haven’t let that deter the sequel being made.
Production on Ted 2 has already begun in Boston and the film is scheduled for release on June 26, 2015.
