Los Angeles - David Hasselhoff is to make an appearance in Ted 2.

The former Baywatch star has already shot scenes for the eagerly-awaited sequel to the 2012 comedy movie, which is being written and directed by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

Speaking about his role in the movie, Hasselhoff told Digital Spy: "It's a pretty funny bit that we're doing in the movie, and [Seth] is a lovely guy.

"I can't really talk about the gag, but it's very irreverent and very funny. He tore me up on the Comedy Central roast, and I get a chance to get back at him!"

The 62-year-old actor also spoke about his personal relationship with MacFarlane, saying: "He's a good guy, we don't meet too many people in showbiz where they say, 'Hey buddy, I'll call you back, I've got something for you', and then you actually hear from them again. This guy's a stand-up guy."

MacFarlane took to Twitter to announce the good news to his fans:

Ted 2 will see Mark Wahlberg reprise his role as John, while MacFarlane will once again provide the voice of his childhood teddy bear.

New cast members include Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman and Amanda Seyfried, who is replacing Mila Kunis as the female lead.
