Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane's upcoming Universal live action/animated hybrid comedy "Ted," starring Mark Wahlberg, just nabbed itself two more actors.

Hot off the heels of her career-making turn in "Black Swan," Mila Kunis has joined the cast and Adam Scott, known for his role on the beloved, but already-canceled Starz series, "Party Down," is in negotiations to join the cast as well.

What's it about? Cue Mark Wahlberg who recently said, "it’s about this kid who gets a bear for Christmas. And, you know, it’s the ‘70s—it’s one of those Teddy Ruxpin-ish teddy bears where you squeeze it and it says, ‘I love you!’ The kid wishes and dreams that the bear would come alive—and a Christmas wish must be granted—and it does [come alive].” We presume the 1970s setting opens the film and then catches up with the grown man years later and, “The bear becomes famous, and that’s my ticket to getting things and living a life of privilege.”

And we're basically correct. THR says, "Twenty-five years later, the bear is still at his side, but has now evolved into a cursing, smoking, delinquent (voiced by MacFarlane) that is preventing the man from maturing."

Ahh, leave it to potty-humor obsessed MacFarlane to dream up a concept as mature and controversial-sounding as this. Kunis will play Wahlberg's impatient girlfriend who is sick of waiting around for this curmudgeonly Teddy Bear to move out, and Scott will play her boss who acts as a romantic wedge between the two lovers. Wahlberg recently revealed that the bear would be a motion-captured creation.

    This sounds like an episode of Supernatural, where a girl wishes her Teddy Bear was real and when it comes to life it's drinks and reads porn and eventually tries to blow it's head off, only to leave a trail of stuffing flying through the air. It was funny on Supernatural. Okay, Seth, you can borrow the premise for your movie now.
