Bullish on the bear

'Ted' helmer was main attraction for star Wahlberg

For his first feature film, Seth MacFarlane didn’t need stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis to ease his nerves at the premiere of Universal’s “Ted” at Grauman’s Chinese Theater on Thursday night.

MacFarlane advised the aud there was material unsuited for young people in the pic. “Anyone under the age of 35 should probably leave now,” he added.

At the afterparty held at Drai’s nightclub at the W in Hollywood, Wahlberg said despite all his gritty dramas, he’s always looking for a good comedy and the opportunity to work with MacFarlane made the decision easier.

“I’ve worked with a lot of first-time directors over the years and you could really tell with Seth that he was a real natural at it and really into the material, which made the experience of doing the film that much more fun,” Wahlberg said.

Producer Scott Stuber ducked out early to get back to his wife, Molly Sims, who had given birth to a boy the night before.
