At a standing-room-only Sunday morning panel, Seth MacFarlane revealed his special guest – Charlie Sheen. Just kidding, he said as Mark Wahlberg ambled onto stage doing a fake cocaine sniffle. Wahlberg stars in Ted, MacFarlane’s feature film directing premiere, which the two were busy creating buzz for well in advance of its summer premiere.
The audience was treated to an eight-minute preview of the tale of a boy whose wish to have his teddy bear comes to life gets freaky when said boy becomes a man. MacFarlane voices the CGI bear, who sounds a whole lot like Peter Griffin of MacFarlane's TV show Family Guy.
“I absolutely fell in love with not working with actors,” Wahlberg said of the film’s lack of swelled-head stars. “Just having to deal with my own [ego] was a pleasure.”
Wahlberg said MacFarlane made him do his two least favorite things in the film: sing and dance.
