Stephen Collins has been fired from director Seth MacFarlane's 'Ted 2' today after a recording of the actor admitting to child molestation made its way online.

When Seth MacFarlane was announced as the host of the 2013 Oscars we wondered whether MacFarlane would bring some of his more famous characters to the big show.

' Ted' seemed a strange proposition from the get-go, but the little guy with a big heart and extensive vocabulary (courtesy of writer-director-star Seth MacFarlane) made a hefty splash when he burst onto the scene in late-June with a $54 million opening. And now, four months later, he's the King of the R-Rated Comedies.
