Mark Wahlberg Boldly Compares MacFarlane’s ‘Teddy Bear’ To ‘Avatar’

Tuesday, December 7 by

With three hit films under his belt this year (one per nipple), Mark Wahlberg’s career is going as strong as ever. He’s already lined up his slate of 2011 films, one of which is Seth MacFarlane‘s comedy project Teddy Bear. We don’t know much about that one beyond it featuring a foul-mouthed teddy bear. But now thanks to Mark Wahlberg’s trailing off and rambling, we know a little bit more:

“I don’t know how much [Seth] wants me to tell, but it’s about this kid who gets a bear for Christmas. And, you know, it’s the ’70s — it’s one of those Teddy Ruxpin-ish teddy bears where you squeeze it and it says, ‘I love you!’ The kid wishes and dreams that the bear would come alive — and a Christmas wish must be granted — and it does [come alive]. Seth McFarlane’s voicing the bear — the bear is gonna look like a little teddy bear, but it’s motion-capture. It’s like ‘Avatar.’ It’s never been done before. It’s insane — I mean, what the bear does… The bear becomes famous, and that’s my ticket to getting things and living a life of privilege.”

The bear becomes famous and that’s your ticket to getting things and living a life of privilege? Is the bear named Donnie Wahlberg? (MTV)
