Ted 2 got Liam Neeson to its cast! Writer/director/star Seth MacFarlane, who previously worked with Neeson on this year’s A Million Ways to Die in the West, tweeted the following:
Yesterday Liam Neeson, today Morgan Freeman. Not a bad week for #Ted2.
— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) September 24, 2014
Morgan Freeman was recently added to the movie and said to have a large role as a civil rights lawyer who takes Ted on as a client. There is no information on Liam Neeson’s role.
Written by, directed by and starring MacFarlane, Ted 2 is Universal and Media Rights Capital’s follow-up to the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time. Joined once again by star Mark Wahlberg and fellow Ted writers Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild, MacFarlane produces the live action/CG-animated comedy alongside Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber, as well as John Jacobs and Jason Clark.
Ted 2 hits the big screen on June 26, 2015.
