Filming in Boston: Ted!

4 May

**UPDATE 5/18** So I’m driving in to work today, and see a bunch of trucks, trailers and food service trucks. The next person I walk by has a Ted badge on; lucky for me, the cast and crew is shooting right down the street from where I work in South Boston at Lucky’s Lounge!

My friend Matt was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time (with his handy iPhone!), and snagged these shots of Mila Kunis and Joel McHale!

And here are some shots from the set, minus the stars.

End update =)

One of Boston’s favorite sons is back in town to film a new movie! If you’ve been hanging around  Tremont Street and Columbus Avenue the last few days, you might’ve caught a glimpse of Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Laura Vandervoort (my girl Lisa on V) and Seth MacFarlane!

They’re in town to film the MacFarlane-directed flick Ted, which, according to IMDB, is a “story centered on a man and his teddy bear, who comes to life as the result of a childhood wish.” Tentatively set to be released next July, I’m not 100% convinced this will be on the 2012 Oscar ballot, but hey, you never know!!/LooVandervoort/status/65187192846286848

Check out some photos from the “set” (aka the streets of Boston around the South End.):

      Yes, he’s directing, but he’ll also be voicing the crude come to life teddy (that’ll be a CGI job!)

    I think the movie will be good. Your websit does need to be updated with new info and new photo’s. This is all old stuff.

        thanks Katie. McHale looks so skinny. Too bad you couldn’t get any close ups of mila, McHale and MacFarlane…the 3 or 4 big M’s.

    Do you really think they’re platonic? No matter what they are to each other that was one of the most ghetto moments on TV. Really disappointed in Mila. Always thought she was too smart to do something so trashy and stupid. What the hell was she thinking?
