Norfolk turned into a little Hollywood in August. The crew for Ted 2 rolled into town filming on Keeney Pond, Trailside Road off Grove Street and supported local businesses like Eagle Brook Saloon. Ted 2 is the sequel to Ted, an R-rated comedy about a teddy bear that is alive and speaks with an off color vocabulary and enjoys an adult beverage from time to time. The movie
stars Mark Wahlberg and features the voice of Seth McFarland.
The film crew spent about a week in town filming. Eagle Brook Saloon posted a thank you on its Facebook page that read, "Thanks to the cast and crew of 'Ted 2' for letting us cater your filming in Norfolk the past two days! Hope you enjoyed the food and your stay in the wonderful Town of Norfolk, Massachusetts! Good luck with the rest of the shoot!"
The news that Ted 2 was filming in Norfolk caused a bit of a flurry on Twitter. "So sick that part of Ted 2 is being filmed in Norfolk today," posted @kylegalvin1, while @dukefan163 wrote, "Ted 2 is about to be unreal with the Norfolk scene." @ToryAtkins posted "The cast &crew of Ted 2 have taken over Norfolk and all of the parking uptown #smalltownproblems."
There is a chance that the Ted 2 Crew will return in September, so be on the lookout for Marky Mark and his fluffy beer swigging friend.
