With only a few more days until cameras start rolling on Kick-Ass 2, the movie’s production has now hit a breakneck pace, trying to get all of its ducks in a row. While many of the first film’s major players have already been tapped to reprise their roles, a few newcomers have also been added to the mix including Donald Faison (Doctor Gravity) and John Leguizamo (Red Mist’s bodyguard Javier). Still, as with any good sequel, there were many more roles to go around, a few of which had yet to be filled.
The newest rumor was that Universal was very interested in casting Jim Carrey for the role of The Colonel, better known to Kick-Ass fans as Colonel Stars. At the time, it seemed like a perfect role for Carrey, who most recently wrapped production on The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and now it appears Universal may have gotten their wish.
