FILM: ‘Ted 2’ crew films scenes in Malden

TED2_promoLights, cameras … Malden? Hollywood East shot scenes for the locally shot flick “Ted 2.” Seth McFarlane, Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried were on set at the Malden Public Library on Monday, July 28.

Judging from the traffic on Salem Street, it wasn’t just your average commute. A fleet of trucks, tents set up outside the library, a long white tube snaking into the building, and a yellow and black sign outside the high school that stated “Catering/Extras Holding” revealed that something out of the ordinary was going on.

Police officials kept foot traffic moving along the Salem Street sidewalk. No standing onlookers allowed.

To folks who have been paying attention, it’s no secret that a few scenes from the movie “Ted 2” are being shot in Malden. There’s been a few open casting calls in the Boston media, most notably one for folks with homemade superhero costumes.
