No offense to the previously cast Mark Wahlberg, but "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane's debut feature film "Ted" just got a serious injection of good looks.
Laura Vandervoort, best known for her role as Supergirl on "Smallville" and as a regular on ABC's "V" reboot, has joined MacFarlane's new comedy alongside Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi and Patrick Warburton.
The movie centers on John (Wahlberg), who as a child, wished for his Teddy Bear, Ted, to come to life. It did -- much to adult John's dismay. In present day, Ted is a vulgar do-nothing, a best friend standing in the way of John enjoying his life.
Vandervoort is set to play one of John's co-workers at a rental car service, reports Deadline, an attractive woman who has little clue that people fawn over her. Most of Vandervoort's previous roles have been in genre TV shows and movies, geared more towards believable, dramatic roles. Since MacFarlane brought her on board for "Ted," it's safe to assume she can deliver the laughs, meaning we'll finally get to see a bit of her funny side.
Vandervoort is set to reappear as Clark Kent's super-powered cousin in the final season of "Smallville," before heading off to film her role in "Ted."
