As for the rest of the “Ted 2” cast, EW.com confirmed on Tuesday that Stephen Collins was cut from the comedy, following lurid molestation allegations.
Collins, who had a small role in the film, was let go after a 2012 recording surfaced on TMZ of the “7th Heaven” actor confessing to molesting and/or exposing himself to several underage girls years before.
Although the 67-year-old actor has not been charged with a crime, the ensuing police investigation was enough to lead MacFarlane and Universal Pictures to immediately end his involvement in the movie, reports EW.com.
“Ted 2” is currently set for release June 26, 2015.
