Letmeshowyousomething: Jim Carrey Ready to ‘Kick Ass’ Too

Rumors have been floating around the past week about Jim Carrey joining the cast of Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, and director Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) confirmed the suspicions over the weekend when he tweeted out a little pet detective reference.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet tw-align-center”><p>6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then! @<a href=””>chloegmoretz</a> @<a href=””>mintzplasse</a> @<a href=””>donald_faison</a> <a href=”″>#kickass2</a></p>&mdash; Jeff Wadlow (@JeffWadlow) <a href=”″ data-datetime=”2012-09-01T21:30:44+00:00″>September 1, 2012</a></blockquote>

The Colonel he’s referring to (alongside Ace Ventura) is Colonel Stars – a complicated character with a rough exterior and often-kind internal drive. He’s a born-again Christian who used to work for the crime boss featured in the first film, and he goes on to start a hero group called Justice Forever. As far as Carrey is concerned, the man has proven over and over again that his talent goes far beyond the elastic faces of his youth. He’s got serious chops – the kind that are grounded but extreme enough to fit into this universe perfectly.
