If you thought Mark Wahlberg's "The Other Guys" co-star Will Ferrell was quirky, just wait till you see "Ted," an upcoming comedy in which Wahlberg, 39, shares the screen with a teddy bear come to life.
Deadline.com reports that "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane will make his directorial debut with the flick, which tells the story of a Boston man (Wahlberg) who, as a boy, wishes that his teddy bear could become real. It does, and the duo remain best friends throughout adulthood. Unfortunately, the bear grows up to be a carousing slacker who wreaks havoc on Wahlberg's personal and love life.
According to Deadline.com, the bad-boy bear will be computer generated, with 37-year-old MacFarlane – who portrays Peter, Brian and Stewie Griffin on "Family Guy" – lending his voice to the character.
