Jim Carrey Officially Cast in KICK-ASS 2

Last month it was reported that Jim Carrey was offered the role of The Colonel in Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. It's now official, Wadlow just tweeted the news saying...

6 days till we start shooting... and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f'n then!

I was hoping Carrey would join in on the Kick-Ass greatness! He's a big fan of the last film, and I think he'll fit in nicely with the cast that also includes Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, Christophe Mintz-PlasseRobert Emms, Donald Faison and Nicolas Cage. I think doing a movie like this could help his career. It's been a very long time since he's been in a decent movie. 

Are you happy to hear that Carrey has joined the cast?

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.
