TED: A Teddy Bear for Adults

Director: Seth MacFarlane Screenplay: Seth MacFarlane, discount Alec Sulkin, Wellesley Wild Release Date: June 29, 2012 Actors: Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth McFarlane Ever since the trailer first came out during commercials during Family Guy, I have wanted to see “TED”.
