Neeson: I got to act with Ted!

Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson has revealed he got to share screen time with the foul-mouthed teddy bear in Ted 2.

The Taken star makes a cameo in the comedy sequel, which reunites him with filmmaker Seth MacFarlane, following their collaboration on Seth's comedy Western, A Million Ways To Die In The West.

"I shot a little scene in Boston a few weeks ago. It was just a little cast-aside cameo," he said.

The 62-year-old actor admitted he doesn't know if his scene would make the final cut, saying: "It's one of those scenes that could be in the finished movie or not. But at least I can say I acted with the bear."

Liam, who has reprised his role as ex-CIA operative Bryan Mills in Taken 3, previously played villainous cowboy Matthew Scudder in A Million Ways To Die In The West, alongside Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried and Seth.

Mark Wahlberg and Amanda star in Ted 2, with Seth as the voice of the potty-mouthed soft toy.

The sequel is due to be released in June.

:: Taken 3 is in cinemas now.
