Ted takes 2! Amanda Seyfried will be starring in the sequel to Seth MacFarlane's 2012 smash comedy Ted!

The Les Miserables star takes the baton from Mila Kunis, who was the female lead in the first movie. Deadline reports Kunis, whose character Lori Collins married Mark Wahlberg's John Bennett at the end of the first film, will either return for a tiny role or not appear at all in the sequel. Seyfried's character and storyline remain unknown.

According to the site, Seyfried replacing Kunis in the lead female role was simply a creative direction taken by director MacFarlane. Kunis, who voices Meg in the comedian's hit animated series Family Guy, still remains close with MacFarlane.
