Morgan Freeman joining Ted 2 cast

Morgan Freeman is to appear alongside foul-mouthed bear Ted in the sequel to the hit comedy.

The 77-year-old actor has joined the cast of Ted 2. According to Variety, Morgan will play an iconic civil rights lawyer who Ted approaches with some legal problems.

Seth MacFarlane - who made his directing debut in the first film, which he also wrote - will return as the voice of Ted, as well as penning and directing the sequel which has already begun shooting.

Mark Wahlberg will reprise his role as immature John Bennett, trying to get through life without his not-so-cuddly teddy bear messing it up for him.

Amanda Seyfried is to replace Mila Kunis as the leading lady in Ted 2.

Mila starred alongside Mark in the hit 2012 comedy as his girlfriend and they ended up tying the knot at the end of the movie.

But Seth has revealed he had replaced Mila as the female lead because of the plot he has chosen for the sequel.
