    ‘Ted 2’ auditions draw Comic-Con-style crowd

    People wait at Boston Casting’s offices in Allston to audition to be costumed extras in “Ted 2.”

    While San Diego hosted its annual Comic-Con festivities over the weekend, Boston Casting had its own costumed event — a casting call for the Seth MacFarlane comedy “Ted 2,” which has started production around Boston with stars Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried. On Saturday afternoon, the casting agency was on the hunt for locals who can serve as costumed extras in a scene that will be filmed in August. Hopefuls who showed up for the casting event included Xiomara Pique Hart, of Jamaica Plain, who dressed as Superwoman; Ontario Devone, of Springfield, who was Spider-Man, and Dave Chevrier, of Falmouth, who dressed as a different kind of superhero, Gene Simmons from Kiss. The line for auditions stretched down the street by Boston Casting’s offices in Allston.
