LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Amanda Seyfried
will reportedly star in the upcoming sequel to Seth MacFarlane
's raunchy CGI teddy-bear comedy, Ted
, also starring Mark Wahlberg
Wahlberg's character, John Bennett, (spoiler alert!) married Mila Kunis' character at the end of the last film, but according to Deadline, Kunis will have a "tiny role, if at all" in Ted 2.
Sources emphasized that there's no drama behind the casting change. MacFarlane brought Seyfried on board as part of a "creative decision" related to plot.
There's no mention of Seyfried's role in the film, so it's unclear whether she'll play a love interest opposite Wahlberg or someone else.
Ted 2 is slated for a summer 2015 release, but MacFarlane's latest film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, also stars Seyfried and comes out this May.
