Amanda Seyfried has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Seth MacFarlane comedy sequel to Ted, tentatively called Ted 2, supposedly replacing Mila Kunis, who starred in Ted.

It is confirmed that Seyfried will star in Ted 2 opposite returning star Mark Wahlberg, but her role remains a bit of a mystery. Kunis, who stars in MacFarlane’s Family Guy, starred in the first film opposite Wahlberg, who played a grown man struggling to mature alongside his loudmouth teddy bear, Ted, voiced by MacFarlane. Kunis played Wahlberg’s girlfriend in the flick, which ended with the two of them getting married.

Kunis will reportedly have a small role in the film, but the decision for the casting shakeup is unknown. E! News reports that the change was simply a creative decision on MacFarlane’s part, and that it has nothing to do with his relationship with Kunis or any other personal conflicts.

Seyfried’s casting is not a total surprise. The young actress recently finished filming MacFarlane’s next feature, A Million Ways to Die In The West, which opens May 30.
