Jim Carrey Courted For ‘Kick-Ass 2′


I am not sure he’s going to say yes, but Jim Carrey is being courted by Universal to play a showy supporting role in Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, the Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s crazy superhero movie. The character is called The Colonel, and he helps galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil. The sequel brings back Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage. Carrey is a big fan of Matthew Vaughn and his original Kick-Ass film. Here, he wore the Kick-Ass costume for a musical duet with a bearded Conan O’Brien. But dealmaking is dealmaking, and this is far from a sure thing, at this point just a great idea.

BAHHH! I hate Jim Carrey. HATE HATE HATE! Please don't let this come true.

DarkBlood1527d ago

oh come on it cant be that bad? :P

Crazay1527d ago

Oh it really is THAT bad. The only thing he's been in that I found to to be even remotely decent in was Dumb and Dumber and Man on the Moon. Everything else I disliked. The guy just annoys me.

thorstein1526d ago

Remember, Nicolas Cage was in Kick Ass. And he played the role perfectly. This might be good news!

Lord_Sloth1527d ago

I agree. Jim Carrey sucks. I've only ever enjoyed The Mask. If he's in this I may have to skip it. He's overblown and annoying as hell. Just like Will Ferrel.

Crazay1527d ago

There's no way I'll skip it. It just might be more like how I was with Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises and hate every scene he's in.

@Crazay your latest comment, I felt the same way about TDKR haha

All the people going "oh she will be like heath ledger and actually be good in the role" nope.

negative1526d ago


Carrey would be great in that role and Hathaway was also great in hers in TDKR.

Not sure why you hate JC but the guy has done some very funny work...sure if you watch some of his movies now they might seem a little corny because humour changes by the years but that does not mean that it was not funny at they time.

I am going to guess that your about 23 which means that you were a kid during JC golden days and you probably did not watch In Living Color.

Also movies like Ace Ventura, Yes Man, Bruce Almighty, The Cable Guy, See Dick Run Me, Myslef and Irene, Liar Liar were very funny in my book.

Crazay1527d ago

No sir - In my 30s was around when he was at the height of his career and just didn't find him to be all that funny. I used to watch In Living Color and will grant you that he was pretty good in that show but I just never saw all the love he received for so long.

FlameBaitGod1526d ago

Well it doesn't matter, you can see the majority disagrees with him.

SephirothX211526d ago

I can see how he can be annoying and some times his expressions can be very annoying but they're also what makes him. I don't mind him personally but there are better comic actors.

BlackTar1871527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

Ace venturas were comedy gold.

Dumb and dumber was good. Liar liar was good alot of his movie though are so-so at best but a coupld of them are comedy gold

Cable guy and me myself and irene are all hilarious.

I like Jim carrey so good news...

sandman2241527d ago

Jim Carrey is awsome. You guys need to chill. If Jim accepts the role the movie will get the attention it deserves.

Daver1527d ago

Nicholas Cage is returning? I thought he was dead in the 1st movie.

Lord_Sloth1526d ago

I've never read the comic series so I dunno about any of that but it's possible that he's back for memories of Hit Girl. Or maybe he's being credited for reused footage.

PersonMan1527d ago


Anyway... Jim Carrey is fine. I've always found him to be funny. However, Lewis Black is not funny to me at all, but some people find him funny. People just have different tastes, that's all. Nothing wrong with Jim Carrey at all and if some people find him annoying, then whatever.

Liar Liar is one of my favorite movies.
