Ted 2 writer-director Seth MacFarlane confirmed on his Twitter page today that Liam Neeson has joined the cast of his comedy sequel. Take a look at what he had to say below, revealing that Morgan Freeman is on the set today.

We reported earlier this month that Morgan Freeman is playing an iconic defense attorney, who was hired by Ted (Seth MacFarlane) to get him over some legal issues. This is the first we've heard about Liam Neeson being cast, but it seems likely that he will only have a cameo appearance. Our report from two weeks ago revealed that director Seth MacFarlane is populating most of his supporting cast with cameos from A-list celebrities and other pop culture icons, in roles they have never portrayed before.
