Freeman set for comedy sequel…

Morgan “The Voice” Freeman has signed on to join Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried on the cast of Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Ted’ sequel.

Plot details are under wraps, but according to Variety’s sources Freeman will be playing a civil rights lawyer who comes into the picture when the foul-mouthed stuffed bear needs to resolve some legal issues.

Filming is underway in Boston with MacFarlane directing from a script he co-wrote with his regular collaborators Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.

The highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time, the first film broke box-office records, grossing in $549.4 million worldwide.
