Casting continues for Kick Ass 2 with a particular big name actor being sought for a pivotal role.  Writer and director Jeff Wadlow is rumored to be after Jim Carrey to play the role of Colonel Stars in the film.  While supposedly only a cameo part, Colonel Stars brings together the group of misfit heroes to battle the mob and Red Mist  played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Actress Lindy Booth is also in talks to star as Night Bitch.  Booth has worked with Jeff Wadlow in the past on Cry_Wolf.

 

Night Bitch is one of the new heroes — none of which has any actual powers — inspired by antics of Kick-Ass and joins a team called Justice Forever. They quickly get in over their heads when an organized crime group they’re antagonizing wants payback.

Along with returning cast Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, new cast members will include Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, Robert Emms and John Leguizamo.  Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall is due to start shooting next month in Toronto.

The first film, directed by Matthew Vaughn was labeled by some critics as “morally reprehensible,” but was a hit, pulling in over $96 million at the box office.  Kick Ass was based on the  2008 comic series of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.
