Talking Ted with a real Family Guy

WHEN Seth MacFarlane calls to talk about his directorial debut, Ted, he's multitasking, of course.

He's just finished another day of work overseeing the three Fox animated comedies he produces - Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad - and is preparing to attend a benefit.

"It's a little crazy," MacFarlane said. "But I can shower and get dressed while we're on the phone."

Ted, which opens in Australia on July 5, stars Mark Wahlberg as a man still living with the toy bear he wished to life when he was a boy.

MacFarlane, 38, not only directed the movie and wrote the screenplay (with Family Guy collaborators Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild), but he also plays the title character: a living, talking, cursing, pot-smoking teddy bear that he portrayed using motion-capture technology.
