It's being reported that that Jim Carrey has been offered a supporting role in the Jeff Wadlow directed movie Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. Carrey would play a character named The Colonel, the creator of the superhero team Justice Forever.
I hope he takes the part! I think it would actually be great to see Carrey in the film. I'm not the biggest fan of his anymore, but joining a movie like this couldn't hurt his career. According to Deadline Carrey is a big fan of director Matthew Vaughn and his original Kick-Ass film. If that's the case... why wouldn't he do it?
If he does take the role he will join Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Robert Emms, Donald Faison and Nicolas Cage. Would you like to see Carrey play this character in Kick-Ass.
Here's a little more detailed info on the character:
Colonel Stars used to work for John Genovese alongside the man who would become Lieutenant Stripes. Both men became born-again Christians before leaving Genovese's employment. Because of this, both survived when Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl tookthe organization down.
Colonel Stars and Lieutenant Stripes both formed Justice Forever, inviting other superheroes to join. They soon recruited Remembering Tommy, Night Bitch, Insect Man, Battle Guy and later Kick-Ass. Their first mission involved taking down a human trafficking organization.
Colonel Stars shows contradictory elements in appearing to be a hardened tough guy when in reality sometimes appearing to be quite soft. He seems to be a genuine nice person making a difference. He later admits that although he has no problems letting his dog, Sofia, eat a criminal's genitals, the guns he carries are empty and are there purely for intimidation purposes.
Here's a video of Carrey dressed up as Kick-Ass singing a Kick-Ass version of It's Not Easy with Conan O' Brien.
