No need for an autocue here, Mark Wahlberg recalls 50 movie characters at the drop of a hat.

The Hollywood A lister has reprised his role for the highly anticipated Ted 2 sequel which hits cinemas tomorrow.

For a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the actor proved why he is top of his game.

In a standout scene in the original Ted movie, Wahlberg impressively lists out every 'White Trash' girls name that comes to mind.

The star admitted that filming that scene was one of his most challenging to date.

“I always pride myself on knowing my lines and showing up on time and being prepared. But that’s the only time I ever had trouble with it," he confessed.

In order to learn the list, he wrote each name out by hand “something like 1,000 times.”

However, director Seth MacFarlane counteracted that the actor was being modest.

“[He is] the single most prepared human being. It’s astonishing. I would be dead in the water if I had to memorize that many names in a row. I was expecting to have to have cue cards. And Mark said, ‘No, I got it.’ He just rattled them all off from memory. It was insane.”

The duo had planned to do a similar scene for the sequel, but eventually decided to cut it.

However, you can watch the impressive moment below, as the 44-year-old proved he's "still got it" to host Graham Norton.
