This weekend the new Seth MacFarlane comedy about a boy and his magical Teddy Bear, "Ted," opens in AMC Theatres.
"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of "Ted." In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish... and has refused to leave his side ever since.
We had the opportunity to sit down with director and star Seth MacFarlane as well as his two leads Mila Kunis (who has voiced "Meg" in MacFarlane's animated series "Family Guy" for over a decade) and Mark Wahlberg to talk about the film recently. Take a look at the video interviews below.
Seth MacFarlane on the pop-culture references in "Ted," a genration of man and women children who may need to grow up, how his mind works and the importance of what he learned working in television about how to construct a story.
Mila Kunis on the shorthand that she and MacFarlane share on set, how she worked with the director to create a relatable female character at the center of this boy/bear comedy and what Seth MacFarlane fans will take away from the film as well as those who may not be as familiar with his work.
Mark Wahlberg on what attracted him to this buddy-bear comedy, the improvisation on set and finding the heart in even the most outrageous of circumstances.
