Apparently Liam Neeson didn't get his fill of Seth MacFarlane charm from 'A Million Ways to Die in the West.' As the 'Family Guy' creator revealed on Twitter, Neeson has joined the cast of 'Ted 2,' and not only that, but he also filmed his scene already.
Although 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' left something (or a million things) to be desired, there's always 'Ted 2,' Seth MacFarlane's follow-up to his 2012 comedy 'Ted,' featuring Mark Wahlberg and one seriously foul-mouthed little teddy bear. And just in case you were wondering if Flash Gordon would have anything to do with the sequel, rest assured: our first look at the sequel promises more Flash-centric humor.
'Ted' was one of the biggest hits of 2012, so it's not surprising that 'Ted 2' was given the green light instantly. Now, with the sequel already deep into filming, a major actor has joined Mark Wahlberg and co-writer/director Seth MacFarlane's living teddy bear: the one and only Morgan Freeman.

It’s interesting that Universal is promoting ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ a film that is not funny, as a comedy. I suspect it has a lot to do with the human carnage we witness on screen being unbearable to watch, so the only way to desensitize an audience’s eyes to what they're about to witness is to somehow convince the viewer that what their about to see is a comedy – even though there is not one laugh to be had.
It's that time of year again, when the major networks begin picking up pilots and making final decisions on struggling series. FOX and NBC have already greenlit a number of new shows and taken others to the woodshed, but some of FOX's latest may surprise you: Seth MacFarlane's controversial 'Dads' is no more, along with the critically-adored 'Enlisted,' Rake,' and Christopher Meloni's 'Surviving Jack.'
It's hard to not find something to admire about the new 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer. After all, director/star Seth MacFarlane could have rode the massive success of 'Ted' down far more accessible and surefire avenues, but nope, here he is, making an uber-violent western comedy. Even if you don't find his sense of humor humor amusing, you've got to cut him some slack for stepping far outside of Hollywood's comfort zone.
It's the summer movie season, and usually that means lots of superhero, action and sci-fi movies. But, can we interest you in a comedy-western? Opening later this month is 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' Seth MacFarlane's follow-up to the massively successful 'Ted.' It may not have a guy in a rubber suit fighting crime, but it does have Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and, oh, of course: a million ways to die. Today, with some exclusive new video from the film, we bring you way to die #520,544: death by doctor.
We haven't made very much of Starz's new offerings since 'Spartacus' went off the air, but the network's latest acquisitions are bound to turn a few heads. Already guaranteed for two seasons, Patrick Stewart and frequent collaborator Seth MacFarlane have teamed for a new journalism comedy series, 'Blunt Talk,' partnering with 'Bored to Death' creator Jonathan Ames for a 2015 premiere.
With Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' hitting theaters relatively soon, the director is wasting no time getting to work on 'Ted 2,' the follow-up to his live-action directorial debut featuring Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane himself as the voice of the lovable, foulmouthed teddy bear. Today brings news that the film has made its latest casting acquisition, and MacFarlane is keeping things close to home: Amanda Seyfried, who also stars in 'A Million Ways,' signed on for the female lead in 'Ted 2.'
