Jim Carrey Cast In ‘Kick-Ass 2’
Deadline is reporting that Kick-Ass 2 has added a new cast member to their line-up. Long time actor Jim Carrey has signed on to play The Colonel. Carrey’s alter ego will reportedly be responsible for getting together the team that will ultimately banish the forces of evil. With plot details being kept tightly under wraps the plot of ‘Kick-Ass 2’ is unclear.
Aside from the ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ star the cast line-up also includes actors Chloe Moretz (Hugo), Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) and Nicolas Cage (Drive Angry). The movie’s script comes from both Jeff Wadlow and Matthew Vaughn who directed the first installment. Carrey is said to be fond of the original director and showed his love for the film a while back on Conan O’Brien, donning a suit from ‘Kick-Ass’.
Carrey is also part of the recently announced ‘Dumb and Dumber To’, ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’, and has also appeared recently in NBC’s ’30 Rock’. His additional credits include ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’, ‘Yes Man’, ‘Horton Hears a Who!’, ‘Fun with Dick and Jane’, ‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events’, among several dozen other roles over the course of his career.
