I was going to say that but then I realized hes actually Brian Griffon. A normally nonvocal creature who talks but everyone treats him like a normal person which appears to be the case with the bear. Wilfred can only be heard by one person and thats cause hes a depressed wacko.
Here’s the adults-only, audio NSFW version of the toned-down green band trailer for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature debut Ted, which aired tonight during the boundary-pushing animated TV series. Mark Wahlberg plays a grown man who meets the woman of his dreams (Mila Kunis) but has to contend with his teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish. The Universal release is slated to open July 13.
This is just like that last few seasons of Married...With Children, that was proceeded by its own ripoff, Unhappily Ever After, that Family Guy cloned and then spun off the exact fucking thing with American Dad.
Christ, could the sad sack guy talking to a toy or animal thing be any more played out?
The voice for the teddy bear is 80 percent Brian, 20 percent Peter. The lead character even has a Massachusetts accent!
He's done a lot of performance presentations, like "McFarlane and Friends" for one, Singing on Stage at various venues and stage shows. He seems comfortable on stage and seems to like performing. He's not hurting for money so it stands to reason that he doesn't have to do this kind of stuff. I think he's just stuck on this anthropomorphic schtick.
