Patrick Warburton Will Be Coming Back for Seth MacFarlane's 'Ted 2'
As one of the few people who gave a positive review of Seth MacFarlane's western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, I'm absolutely still looking forward to Ted 2, the sequel to the "Family Guy" creator's 2012 raunchy comedy about a grown man and his talking teddy bear that he's had since childhood. The film is set for release on June 26th, 2015 with Mark Wahlberg back in the lead, MacFarlane voicing the title stuffed animal, and Amanda Seyfried taking a female lead role (with Mila Kunis likely not back in a large capacity). Now Deadline reports another character will be back too with Patrick Warburton returning.
Warburton is a regular voice on "Family Guy" as Peter Griffin's paraplegic neighbor Joe, and in Ted he played one of Wahlberg's friends at the car rental office. It was an amusing supporting role, one that actually featured him falling in love with a silent Ryan Reynolds, who also made a quiet cameo in A Million Ways to Die in the West (it must be an inside joke with MacFarlane or someting). Will Warburton have a bigger role this time, or is he just back for a small amount of laughs? We're not even sure what the story will be for this sequel, but hopefully we'll hear something soon. Stay tuned.
