Okay, don’t kick me out of the cool kid’s club for this… but… I’ve never seen Kick-Ass (*waits for gasps and tomatoes to be hurled at self*). The love of my life always starts watching it when I’m in the middle of doing something, and it’s just never happened for me! I have, however, caught a few scenes here and there and I really look forward to sitting down and watching the whole thing. And now I have another reason– Kick-Ass 2 is coming! And friggen Jim Carrey is in it! Click inside to get your first look at Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars And Stripes.
Jim Carrey Does Kick-Ass 2:
Complex has the story:
With Man of Steel, Iron Man 3, The Wolverine, and Thor: The Dark World all vying for the comic book movie crown this year, it’s easy to forget that Kick-Ass 2 is also on the horizon. Not only that, but the movie is addingJim Carrey to the mix just to add even more intrigue to the project. And in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (via Collider) we see the debut of what Carrey will look like in his role as Colonel Stars and Stripes, the leader of a new group of wannabe vigilantes known as Justice Forever.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, and Donald Faison will join Carrey in Kick-Ass 2, which will hit theaters on June 28, 2013.
So who’s seen the first Kick-Ass, and who loves it? Are you excited for Jim to join the old cast? I don’t know the story well enough to even know what to expect, but Jim Carrey is still my homeboy, so I’m excited for this one!
