And that's -- 212500. Dollar billion dollars -- -- which really leads us on the oil which leads us to this lawsuit good. Panicked call -- -- part of the story then it casting call on the other day yet you see in the autumn by fear we're supposed to show up to that one extras.

Here's why this is in the news and again they should have been our lead story but I saved for the end. -- Fuzzy door productions up quo according to their lawsuit that they are filing. Ted was not the original foul mouth Teddy bear -- all to the point that they are filing a lawsuit. Against angle mangled productions and a bag -- Michael productions the company suing Seth MacFarlane and his company for allegedly stealing the idea. Behind Ted according to the California production company they at a screenplay in 2008 called acting school academy that starred. Charlie. Who was a foul mouth bear who and Charlie who like Ted lives in a quote human adult world of all human friends the lawsuit states quote. Charlie has a penchant for drinking smoking prostitutes. And he's -- generally vulgar yet humorous Eric sounds familiar wow that's. Headlines until he's going to be stick to something. Dig to you -- people could. It was knows what they -- just laugh -- what you that was my biggest McFarland who directed co wrote produced and starred in the film along with the producer media rights capital and distributor Universal Studios are all named. In the lawsuit due to the character Ted being quote. Strikingly similar. The plaintiffs Charlie -- -- like with enhanced scripting is that you have vanishing point management and wrote a script met with the studio they rejected it -- -- -- made a movie just like Eaton who was that Damon will go LC and you'll see you'll see that -- The Teddy bears are said to have similar physical attributes and vulgar traits would both living. In the same type of environment so Charlie apparently in 2008. Was a part of his screenplay and and by the way if if this bill are represented from afar as yet to respond to the daily news requests for comment but. When you look back on it it's grossed 550 million dollars. I'd take a shot at a -- -- it's been bombed there would be you know lawsuit rent first observation my second observation is it sounds like they have a case on my observation is. This is one of the prices you pay when you get up into the rarefied air of Hollywood and any. Hugely successful enterprise right that people come after and there are. The bottom line is there are no new ideas. Every idea is recycled or whether it's for us on new cooking show -- -- television candidate as -- well his lawsuit you know you win this lawsuit -- -- produced no you won yet but you produced Charlie at the trial and he's got to be funny -- that -- he's got to walk on in.
