Seth MacFarlane is one of the biggest names in television these days, which makes it kind of surprising that he is just now getting around to his feature directorial debut. Regardless, TED is on its way and MacFarlane is lining up his cast with greatness and many names who are recognizable to his Family Guy fans.

Not only will TED consist of Family Guy regular Mila Kunis, but Patrick Warburton, who plays Joe Swanson on the show, will also be taking up a role.

Aside from Warburton being on Family Guy, he also played as The Tick in the short-lived live-action series and both of the HOODWINKED films. In TED, he will be taking up the role of Guy, “the sexually confused co-worker of John (Wahlberg) at the Enterprise Rent-A-Car front office.” Warburton is known for his silly antics, so there's no doubt he will bring the funny in TED.

The addition of Warburton in the film only makes me more excited for the film, and that's coming from someone who really doesn't like Family Guy at all. The film really seems to be coming together well, and the cast is definitely something to be excited about. The hard R rating doesn't hurt either, as it seems more suitable for MacFarlane's comedic sensibilities.

What do you guys think of this cast addition? What's your favorite Patrick Warburton role?
