Liam Neeson doesn't care that “A Million Ways to Die in the West” was a box-office disappointment – he's gonna star in “Ted 2” anyway.
The “Taken 3” actor has signed on for the forthcoming comedy sequel, director Seth MacFarlane revealed on Twitter today.
Yesterday Liam Neeson, today Morgan Freeman. Not a bad week for #Ted2.

In addition, HitFix has exclusively learned that “Mad Men” star John Slattery is on board for the film. No specifics on either role is available at this time.
With nearly $550 million at the box office worldwide, “Ted” became one of the biggest hits of 2012 and the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time. Mark Wahlberg, MacFarlane (as the voice of the foul-mouthed title character), Patrick Warburton and Jessica Barth are set to return for the followup alongside franchise newcomers Amanda Seyfried, Morgan Freeman and Dennis Haysbert.
