Amanda Seyfried will reportedly star in ‘Ted 2,’ the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster comedy.

Seth MacFarlane apparently can't get enough of Amanda Seyfried.

The writer-director cast the 28-year-old actress in "Ted 2," the sequel to the 2012 comedy hit that ended up earning $549 million worldwide at the box office, the Daily News has confirmed.


Seyfried’s addition may mean less screen time for Mila Kunis (pictured with reformed racist Mark Wahlberg), assuming the actress reprises her role from the first ‘Ted.’

Seyfried's casting comes on he heels of her turn in MacFarlane's previous project, the comic western "A Million Ways to Die in the West," which hits theaters on May 30.

In "Ted 2," she'll join returning heaadliner Mark Wahlberg Donnie Wahlberg's brother and MacFarlane who will pull double duty voicing the titular potty-mouthed teddy bear.


Seth MacFarlane speaks onstage at the 85th Annual Academy Awards in February 2013.

Deadline.com, which first reported the news, that if Wahlberg's "Ted" co-star Mila Kunis also reprises her role in the sequel, it will be with much less screen time than the first. That is being attributed to a "creative decision" in the script written by MacFarlane, since he remains close with Kunis from their work together on "Family Guy."

"Ted 2" is scheduled to hit theaters on June 26, 2015.
