Seth MacFarlane's Rejected Movie Pitches (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane will venture into the world of cinema this July with a movie starring Mark Wahlberg and a talking teddy bear. But "Ted" wasn't the Fox animation kingpin's first idea for a celebrity/sentient object comedy.

In fact, MacFarlane started with about 50 variations -- terrible variations -- that were rejected before they could even be committed to paper. We're talking about Jeff Bridges' father coming back to life as a burrito, Peter Dinklage interacting with a Sega Dreamcast, Keith Olberman meeting a Go-gurt and even Maya Angelou talking to a rubber ducky.

Yeah. They're pretty bad.

College Humor has the scoop with the above sketch featuring MacFarlane going over all of his "rejected" ideas. Watch out for Mark Wahlberg at the end explaining how "Ted" actually came to life.
