Giovanni Ribisi joins Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg in Ted
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Giovanni Ribisi (AVATAR) has joined the cast of the upcoming dark comedy TED, and will star alongside Mark Wahlberg (THE FIGHTER) and Mila Kunis (BLACK SWAN). TED follows a boy who wishes that his stuffed bear would come to life and to his amazement, it does and it’s still kicking 25 years later and has picked up a few bad habits along the way. Mark Wahlberg will play the owner of the stuffed bear named Ted (to be voiced by Seth MacFarlane), Mila Kunis will play Wahlberg’s girlfriend (she’s actually not 100% confirmed, but is in final negotiations) and Ribisi will play Donny who is apparently some creepy guy who is obsessed with Ted. Shooting should begin sometime soon.
I think this could be really funny, or it could turn bad quickly like HOWARD THE DUCK did. I like Wahlberg and Kunis, but not really a fan of MacFarlane’s work- that’s right, I don’t like FAMILY GUY. There, I said it.
