Jim Carrey confirmed for Kick-Ass 2
With 3 days until filming begins on Kick-Ass 2:Balls to the Wall, it was confirmed by Mark Millar yesterday that Jim Carrey will be starring in the role of Colonel Stars, the Born Again christian badass, co founder of the superhero group Justice Forever. Mark Millar states:
[quote]Matthew Vaughn, Jeff Wadlow and I did a conference call with Jim a couple of weeks back and we’ve been itching to talk about this ever since because the energy Jim’s going to bring to Colonel Stars has me buzzing as much as Nic Cage with Big Daddy…Nic is really good friends with Jim Carrey and it’s well known to everyone that Jim loved the first movie.[/quote]
As a fan of the first Kick-Ass I am excited for the next and so far the buzz is good. Jim Carrey has done some wonderful work, Me Myself and Irene being my favourite pick, but he does have a tendency to be annoying sometimes, which is always a worry. However, I am confident that in a supporting role and under that watchful eye of director Jeff Wadlow and writers Mark Millar and John Romita Jr he can only add to an already awesome cast and story.
