Patrick Warburton has signed on to reprise his role as Guy from the 2012 hit comedy Ted in the upcoming sequel Ted 2.

In the original movie, Guy was one of John McNamara's (Mark Wahlberg) co-workers, but it isn't clear yet if Guy's "silent partner" Jared, played by Ryan Reynolds, will also be back for the sequel.

No story details have been confirmed at this time, but we reported in February that Amanda Seyfried has signed on to play the female lead. Mila Kunis, who played John's girlfriend Lori in the first movie, is coming back to reprise her role, but she will have a much smaller part in the sequel.

Seth MacFarlane will once again provide the voice of Ted, along with directing the sequel from a script he co-wrote with Ted collaborators Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. It isn't clear when production will begin on the sequel.

Patrick Warburton, who provides the voice of Joe Swanson on Seth MacFarlane's hit Fox series Family Guy, most recently voiced roles in Mr. Peabody and Sherman and Planes: Fire & Rescue.
