Jim Carrey cast as Colonel Stars in 'Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall'

Looks like the Kick-Ass sequel is getting an extra dose of wackiness. Comedic legend Jim Carrey has officially been signed on to be a part of the over-the-top superhero follow-up to the 2010 film.

Carrey will be portraying Colonel Stars, a reformed villain / born-again Christian tough guy. In the comics, he and his partner Lieutenant Stripes form a superhero team called Justice Forever which Kick-Ass later joins. This group will be a part of the story in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, most likely to battle against the antagonist Red Mist.

Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar expressed excitement once word broke out that the funnyman actor was locked up for the role.

“Matthew Vaughn, Jeff Wadlow, and I did a conference call with Jim a couple of weeks back and we’ve been itching to talk about this ever since because the energy Jim’s going to bring to Colonel Stars has me buzzing as much as Nic Cage with Big Daddy.”

I'll admit, I didn't watch Kick-Ass and know next to nothing about the story. Jim Carrey coming on board gets me a little intrigued though. I'm sure there will be a lot more buzz on his inclusion once the first trailer is released. Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall is scheduled to be out June 28th, 2013.
