Ted and Mark WahlbergMark Wahlberg and Ted will present an award together at the Oscars.

The 41-year-old actor will be joined on stage at the Academy Awards later this month by the teddy bear - his Ted co-star - and producers have joked Mark only got the job thanks to Ted.

"We are happy to make it possible for Mark and Ted to make their debut appearance on the Oscar stage. And we won't deny that Ted used his pull with our host to get himself the booking," said Telecast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

Ted added he was excited but worried about how to pronounce some of the names, such as Quvenzhane Wallis, the nine-year-old actress who has been nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in Beasts Of The Southern Wild: "I'm excited to present an Oscar with Mark Wahlberg. I'm spending the next month learning to pronounce 'Quvenzhane,'" he joked.
