Mark Wahlberg Will Appear With ‘Ted’ at the Oscars
With Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane hosting the 85th Annual Academy Awards, it would seem that anything might happen. Now, Mark Wahlberg – star of MacFarlane’s feature film debut, Ted – confirms that he and his co-star, the titular CGI teddy bear (voiced by MacFarlane himself), will appear during the Oscar telecast on February 24.
In an appearance on Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show set to air Friday, Wahlberg also confirmed that deals are in works to bring about a sequel to Ted, which surpassed The Hangover to become the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. While mentioning that he’s never done a sequel before, Wahlberg expressed his confidence in MacFarlane.
When asked by Cooper how Ted will be preparing for his big night at the Oscars, Wahlberg replied, “He can’t do it without [smoking a bong]. It’s mandatory.”
