Mila Kunis Pitched Seth MacFarlane Other Actors For 2 Years Before She Was Offered ‘Ted’

Mila Kunis has numerous hits in her filmography, with her partnership with Ted writer Seth MacFarlane proving to be especially successful. But despite working together on Family Guy, MacFarlane didn’t consider Kunis when lining up his first live-action film. In fact, the writer asked for her help to find a suitable actor for the female lead role. Eventually, though, she scored the gig.

Kunis was far from a household name when she became the voice of Meg Griffin. That ’70s Show was new. Most of her roles before it were either one-off parts in TV shows or in forgettable movies. The Family Guy job only became available after the original voice actor, Lacey Chabert, left the show. Kunis had to learn how to enunciate properly to match what MacFarlane was looking for. But she eventually won the “greatest job ever” and has kept the role ever since.
