That’s the set-up for the new Seth MacFarlane comedy TED which features Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett who made a wish as a kid that has haunted him as an adult and Mila Kumis as Lori Collins, his somewhat understanding girlfriend. Doing TED was a no brainer for Kunis, since she currently voices the role of Meg Griffin on the Seth MacFarlane created FAMILY […]Read On »
