Patrick Warburton Joins Seth MacFarlane's Ted
Patrick Warburton, best known as David Puddy from Seinfeld, Joe on Family Guy and/or Brock Samson on Venture Bros. has been cast in Family Guy-creator Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming live-action film, Ted.
The comedy stars Mark Wahlberg as John, who makes a wish that brings his teddy bear to life so he can avoid committing to his long-time girlfriend, played by Mila Kunis (another Family Guy cast member).
Warburton will play the character Guy, John’s sexually-confused co-worker, at a rental-car dealership, while MacFarlane will voice the teddy bear.
According to Deadline’s Mike Fleming, “the fix was in on this one. I have read the script, and when Guy is first introduced, the character is described as ‘a burly Patrick Warburton type.’ So it’s possible that MacFarlane knew all along he’d be casting Warburton.”
