After working together on the less-than-successful western comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” Liam Neeson and Seth MacFarlane are still trying to create comic gold together, and are teaming up again for “Ted 2.”
MacFarlane confirmed Neeson’s involvement in the project on Twitter Wednesday, writing that the actor was on set shooting scenes earlier in the week. He also noted that Morgan Freeman was currently filming for the sequel to “Ted,” the 2012 talking bear flick starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, with MacFarlane voicing the foul-mouthed title character.
Yesterday Liam Neeson, today Morgan Freeman. Not a bad week for #Ted2.

MacFarlane and Wahlberg are back for round two with the sequel, and Amanda Seyfried is filling in for Kunis in the female lead role this time around. There’s no word on who Neeson is playing, but any cameo from the action star will be a welcome one.
“Ted 2” is set to hit theaters on June 26, 2015.
