Wow, this is some interesting news.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Morgan Freeman is joining Ted 2, the upcoming sequel to the comedy mega-hit about a magical talking bear and his owner, played by Mark Wahlberg. Freeman will be portraying a civil rights lawyer who assists Ted in a legal case concerning his rights as a stuffed and self-aware teddy bear.
This actually sounds absolutely hilarious and I’m excited that someone like Morgan Freeman is going to be sending himself up. I hope that there will a narrator battle between him and Patrick Stewart at some point. What makes me nervous is that I’ve seen the directions that comedy franchises have taken in recent memory. What that means is, I’ve seen The Hangover 2. Now, I don’t trust anything.
Good luck, Morgan Freeman and the cast of Ted 2. Make this a winner.
Ted told the story of John Bennett, a normal kid who wishes that his new teddy bear would become real, and he gets his wish. 30 years later…
Ted 2 comes to life June 26th, 2015.
