Liam Neeson and action-packed kidnapping movies go together like fries, gravy and cheese curds — but all of that might change thanks to a not-so-friendly bear named Ted. It’s been announced that (along with Amanda Seyfried and Morgan Freeman) Neeson will be joining the cast of Ted 2. This news has sent us reeling at the endless plot possibilities — especially since there’s no word as to what role he’ll play. We’ve come up with some amazing scenarios that he and Ted will surely love.
Or they skip the kidnapping and join a gang to avenge the murder of a family member a la Gangs of New York.
And Teddy totally looks up to Liam as a mentor — just like in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith…
…and Batman Begins.
Things might take a mushy turn if we see Liam and his stepson Ted deal with heartbreak and loss a la Love Actually.
And we’ll probably start bawling if we have to see Ted say goodbye to Liam for the last time (just like Lucy did with Aslan, who was voiced by Liam, in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.)
As you can see, there are an infinite amount of possibilities. What was your favourite (mock) scenario? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
