Amanda Seyfried set to star in Ted 2

Seth MacFarlane’s comedy sequel Ted 2 has found its female lead, with Amanda Seyfried set to star opposite Mark Wahlberg.

According to Deadline , Seyfried will play Wahlberg’s primary love interest, with Mila Kunis likely only to return in a small role, if at all.

The report claims that the casting represents a creative decision on MacFarlane’s part, with he and regular Family Guy star Kunis remaining close, as opposed to having had any kind of fall-out.

Seyfried recently collaborated with MacFarlane on comedy Western A Million Ways To Die In The West , set to open in the UK in May.

As well as directing the sequel, MacFarlane will also return to voice the titular teddy, with Ted 2 scheduled to open in the UK on 10 July 2015.
