Jim Carrey officially joins the cast of Kick Ass 2 as Colonel Stars

Sep. 4, 2012by: Paul Shirey

According to KICK ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALL director Jeff Wadlow's Twitter, the rubber-faced comedian has officially joined the cast of the sequel as Colonel Stars. It was rumored that the studio was courting Carrey for the role, but nothing solid has hit until now. The role would see Carrey as the leader of 'Justice Forever," which is naturally a hybrid "superhero" group akin to The Avengers or Justice League only set in the KICK ASS universe.

Having read the comics, I find this to be a very interesting choice for Carrey since Colonel Stars isn't funny. At all. He's the straight-laced leader of the group, albeit a bit crazy and violent, which is not the usual shtick for the comedian. Given that this is hard-R territory, I'm actually pretty stoked to see Carrey in this role. It beats the shit out of him dancing with penguins and may well reinvigorate the actor to take some more risks and get out there some more.

KICK ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALL also stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lyndy Fonseca, John Leguizamo, Donald Fiason, Morris Chestnut, Lindy Booth, and Yancy Butler gets bloody on June 28, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Remember Yancy Butler from the short-lived Witchblade TV show? Still hot.

This plus his return to DUMB AND DUMBER 2 is the big return I've always hoped for with Jim.

I worked with Wadlow on Never Back Down, the guy was a really cool and down to earth dude who had zero ego. I am glad to see him taking over a high profile project like this. Any Casting news with Carrey I am all for, I love the guy and hope to see him getting more and more roles again (Especially that Dumb & Dumber sequel)

Very cool. On a side note, any thoughts on Vaughn's involvement or lack thereof as to how good the sequel will be?

If you don't think Jim Carrey can't do crazy, HELLO have you not seen The Cable Guy? Which to me is a very underappreciated movie he did.

Sad News....

Jim Carrey is the current Robin Williams. He plays Jim Carrey, playing Jim Carrey as Jim Carrey doing an impression of Jim Carrey in the last bad film you saw him in.

We've seen his shtick before and we don't need to see it AGAIN. This is not good news. He'll ruin the scenes he's in and drag down the film.

What's it like in the future?

You seem to have seen the film already, so I'm assuming you're a time traveler.

First, in spite of your bashing this article, we appreciate you giving this the "Im Hip To This" thumbs up.
Second, what are you talking about? Robin Williams? I assume you never saw Mr Williams in a serious role (One Hour Photo, Insomnia) or Mr Carrey (Eternal Sunshine, I Love You Philip Morris).
Last, "schtick" is kind of expected in a dark comedy about adults in spandex.
Lighten up, Frances.

As much as I want to see this flick, I'm REALLY worried about the cast:
The 3 main characters are supposed to be early teenagers... And the 3 actors impersonating them are (but above all LOOK) twenty somethings... I mean, have you seen Johnson in SAVAGES, and Moretz in DARK SHADOWS ?! And we are supposed to believe they are, like 10 or something ?!
