Hitting theaters today, TED is the feature film directorial debut of FAMILY GUY creator (and equal-opportunity offender)SETH MacFARLANE. Telling the off-beat story of a seemingly normal man whose childhood wish that his beloved teddy bear come to life produces a foul-mouthed, pot-smoking, skirt-chasing plushie, the film easily slips into humor that could offend. Written by MacFARLANE (who also provides the voice of the titular bear), the cast features MARK WAHLBERG, MILA KUNIS, GIOVANNI RIBISI, JESSICA STROUP and ALEX BORSTEIN.
During the New York press conference to promote the film, MacFARLANE talked about why he took such a long time to bring TED to the big screen. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
