Mark Wahlberg Drops ‘Ted 2′ Plot Hints, Says It Will Be ‘Crazier Than Ever’

Mark Wahlberg Talks Ted 2 Plot Mark Wahlberg Drops Ted 2 Plot Hints, Says It Will Be Crazier Than Ever
Starting this week, rapper, actor and action star Mark Wahlberg can be seen in theaters opposite some very intimidating co-stars in his latest movie Transformers: Age of Extinction, but next on his agenda is a reunion with a certain naughty, larger-than-life CGI teddy bear named Ted (Seth MacFarlane). The sequel to the 2012 hit, so far just called Ted 2, will begin filming very soon for a summer 2015 release, albeit with a few noticeable changes from the original.

Mila Kunis, who played John Bennett’s girlfriend and eventual wife, is not returning outside of maybe a small cameo. Instead, Amanda Seyfried has joined the cast as his new lady love after appearing in MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West this summer. The news about Kunis leaving and Seyfriend replacing her took fans by surprise earlier this year, and many have wondered what this could mean for the storyline of the sequel.

Sitting down with IGN for Transformers 4, Wahlberg let a few details slip about the plot of Ted 2. He admits that John has not settled down at all since the last film, saying:

“That wouldn’t be any fun. No, no, no, they’re crazier than ever.”

But if Ted was expecting their bromance to get back on track, he should think again – apparently, he’ll have a new rival for John’s affections in Seyfriend. Said Wahlberg:

“It’s a problem, but Ted has bigger issues, bigger fish to fry.”

In a previous interview, Wahlberg had hinted that John and Ted may even take their shenanigans “on the road,” so at this point it would appear some kind of road trip is in store for the two buddies. However, what this could mean for John or his relationship with either Kunis or Seyfried’s characters as he continues “looking for love and everything else there is to look for” is still unclear.

In order for a sequel to be successful, it usually has to differ from the original enough to stand on its own. That said, if the premise changes too much – or resets it as Ted 2 appears to be doing – then the filmmakers run the risk of alienating the same audience they’re trying to bring back to theaters.

So what do you think, Screen Rant readers? Are you excited for a soul-searching road trip movie? Or do you just wish Kunis would return for more fun?

  1. So sad that Mila Kunis won’t be in the sequel.

    • I’d like to see her in a “teddy”…

  2. I don’t like this, so much of the first movie was about mark and mila’s relationship and they got married at the end too.

  3. I want there to be a stuffed talking elephant that becomes teds rival.

  4. I initially read the headline as “Mark Wahlberg Drops ‘Ted 2″

  5. I just wish Kunis would return for more fun.

  6. A sequel is pointless. Normally I stay away from Wahlberg films because I just don’t find him to be that good an actor but Ted was one of the funniest films I’ve ever seen. To make a sequel would be pretty much re-treading what has already happened and could ruin what ‘may’ be revered as a classic comedy. I’ll still no doubt watch it when it hits the TV screens.

  7. Doesn’t make sense

  8. At the end of the first movie their relationship was stronger than ever, it doesn’t make sense for her not to be in the sequel!

    • Well I read another article that said Seyfried could be Ted’s girlfriend. And if Ted and John actually end up going on a road trip, then Laurie probably stays home (with the baby) (im pretty sure there will be a baby that was made lol) while John, Ted and his girlfriend go on a road trip. :) that would be pretty different and still funny to me.

  9. Why not bring back Mila Kunis? Doesn’t make sense

  10. Relationships end, patience wears thin. Kunis’ character probably was like “screw this” and left.

    Nothing else needs to be said, things change, people change, ya move on…

    • It just seems stupid you went through all that to build their relationship in the first movie only to say yeah it didnt work out in the second.

  11. Nicholas is spot on.

  12. It’s like they spent a movie developing that character and now they’re just throwing it out the window completely. And the only reason I watched it was to look at Mila, Amanda Seyfried just isn’t the same.

  13. Since it was onced rumored as being a roadtrip of sorts, kunis can stilll be in it with the rel intact etc. could just be whalberg’s is visting Ted thats now moved to a different city or any number of reason that doesnt neccesitate the what the previous movie set out to do etc..

  14. So … Brian and Stewie on the road like old times. I can dig it.

  15. Mila Kunis not being in the sequel is not right her character got married at the end. At least give an explanation to why she’s not in the movie.

    • I’m guessing she’s not in the movie because it started filming while she was still pregnant. But writing out her character is totally wrong!

  16. Please don’t let Amanda Seyfried ruin what could turn out to be another great movie. Seriously, she can’t act to save herself

  17. Ted was fun. And God isn’t pleased with me for saying so. Man what a debauch!

    The departure of Kunis is too big a negative. The only way, in my view, that they could (or should try to) get around it is by having her in the story, but out of sight. The road trip would allow for that. Of course, When EVER has Hollywood genuinely cared about rules. There’s one rule. Make money, polish the Pentagon/CIA’s image and glorify war (the last two being an extension of the make money thing since that’s what the mic is all about).

  18. I really wish Mila would return! She was so perfect the first time, the sequel just won’t be the same without her. Seyfries brings nothing to the table and will just bring the movie down. If she’s supposed to be a love interest, then hopefully we’ll see Mila return at the end to knock her out and take back her man!
