Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Kick-Ass 2 star Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Warning: the word “motherf*cker” is uttered about three times during this interview. And actually, that isn’t too bad, considering we’re talking about the name of Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s super villain in KICK-ASS 2. You’ve never really seen a bad guy like The Motherf*cker before; half-crazed maniac, half-immature, snotty teenager, he’s intent on ridding the world of Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who killed the Motherf*cker’s father years earlier. Hey, who among us wouldn’t do the same exact thing?
Far from the psycho he portrays, Mintz-Plasse is a fun, likable guy. (As you probably always imagined he would be.) I sat down to chat with the actor about the insane costume he wears in the film, working with Jim Carrey and the challenge of making such a heinous jerk entertaining.
