With Ted 2 hitting our screens this week, we had the pleasure of sitting down with the film’s leading man Mark Wahlberg to discuss the project and why he decided to sign on for a sequel.

He also¬†explains why this is the first sequel he’s been a part of, despite how close they came to a follow up to The Departed. He also tells us about a hilarious prank he pulled on fellow co-star Amanda Seyfried. Though be sure to check back on the site later today to see why she didn’t find it quite so funny…

Ted 2 is released on July 8th. Check back on HeyUGuys for interviews with Seth MacFarlane, Amanda Seyfried and Jessica Barth.
