Sounds Like Jim Carrey Is Confirmed For ‘Kick-Ass 2′

Kick-Assmovie

Jeff Wadlow, director of Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, hinted that Jim Carrey has officially joined the cast for the upcoming sequel. Carey said he was a fan of the first film and since then has been linked to playing the role of Colonel Stars. Wadlow tweeted, “6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then! @ChloeGMoretz @MintzPlasse @donald_faison #kickass2.” Sounds like Carrey is onboard.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse responded to the tweet asking who got the part to which Mark Millar wrote, “Clue – he lives with 200 raccoons and parrots, owns the mask of Loki and named by Spielberg as a genius.”

All the stars of the original film are set to be on board with the addition of Lyndsy Fonseca, Yancy Butler, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, Lindy Booth and Andy Nyman. Kick-Ass 2 is set for release on June 28, 2013.

    Great news!

    Carrey has tried to be a serious actor in the past (The Majestic was amazing), but he’s more entertaining as a comedy guy.

    Ugh, waiting for Kick-Ass 2 is going to drive men nuts!

    Agh man, not really a big Jim Carrey fan, liked him in Eternal Sunshine but that’s about it.

    Aaron same here. i don’t “hate” Carrey but i really don’t care for him either. i’m VERY excited for KICK ASS 2!! i love Lindy Booth from the DAWN remake and from WRONG TURN. but imo they MUST bring back John Murphy (his reworked tracks from 28 DAYS LATER and SUNSHINE as well as some new tracks i believe) to score/co-score the movie! his music really was perfect in the 1st movie and really helped make it epic!

    The Colonel in the comics doesn’t seem like Jim Carrey AT ALL but I’m very excited to see what he will bring to it! Especially to see him and his dog together on screen!
