News Simon Brew 24 Sep 2012 - 06:31

Kick-Ass 2 continues to shoot in Toronto. And now, Jim Carrey's joined the fun...

Production is now - as you probably know - well underway on Kick-Ass 2, this time being directed by Jeff Wadlow. The film is currently shooting in America - it's heading to Britain soon - and as such, pictures of the shoot have been popping up online.

These latest snaps, then, give us the first glimpse of Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars in Kick-Ass 2. He's part of the Justice Forever team of heroes, and you can see them lining up for the first time here.

The pictures popped up over at Newscom, and Kick-Ass 2 is scheduled for release on 19th July 2013 in the US. We're really rather looking forward to it...

He looks a bit like Jack Nicholson to me

Minor quibble: The film is currently being shot in the states, but the Jim Carey picture was taken in Toronto? Or am I just being stupid...

And also Timothy Olyphant.

Haha no its not you, it's definately filming in Toronto (Canada) not the US...

Its a waste of Jim Carrey. He will be good in it I am sure, but Colonel Stars could be played by anyone. I can see why he is doing it...actor in a darker role than usual etc, but its a real downer. Considering what happens to his character etc. I wish Jim Carrey would do some more funny silly comedies again. I enjoyed Poppers Penguins , I am sad to say. I wish he would do Dumb and Dumber 2 or something else like that again, Liar Liar etc...that was great fun. He used to do two comic films a year, what happened to that? In the last 8-9 years all we have had are Bruce Almighty and Mr Poppers Penguins. Oh well he has made his money and must have got bored.

Yes he probably is I agree. Its just that I miss his goofy roles a lot. He has done other straight stuff like the Majestic and Truman show etc. I just think Colonel Stars is a very odd choice for him, and an odd choice by the production staff in casting him. I wonder if they will stick to the comics regarding his fate or if they will re write it. I still wish he would just do one comedy every couple of years even. He is so funny and there is no one like him, Liar Liar still makes me laugh, the Grinch is great to watch at Christmas...Hmmmm. Its almost like he has dropped off the movie map the last few years, what was his last film? Erm hang on...let me look it up...ok He has only done three proper Jim Carrey comedy films since 2003. That was Bruce Almighty in 03, Yes Man in 08 and Popper in 2011. The rest is all voices - Scrooge, Horton hears a Who etc and stuff like Lemony Snicket, Phillip Morris and so on. Hmph....Its just me, being me, but I would like to see more of Jim Carrey of Dumb and Dumber / The Mask than of Colonel Stars and Phillip Morris

Although I agree with you that Jim Carrey is more of a goofy comedic actor, He is just sculpted in your mind as such, Because you have only seen his funny side of acting due to him acting in comedy films. I imagine you have not seen the film The Number 23. This film just proves how well Mr. Carrey can act, No matter the role or subject of the film. I am glad he is going to be in Kick Ass 2. Kick Ass is and will forever be one of my favorite movies.

Yo..yes I saw him in Number 23 and I thought he was good. Also in the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and the Majestic. In all of the films he has done, he has never put in a bad performance once. Its always been excellent and with lots of energy etc. I know he will be good in Kickass 2 as he has never been bad in anything. I just would like to see some more fun stuff to make me laugh thats all. Maybe when he is done with Kickass he might do another comedy. Not to worry its Christmas again soon and I can re watch the Grinch to keep me going until he does the funnies again.

How much is he wearing in the way of prosthetics? It looks a bit silly.

But then again, it's Jim Carrey so that could entirely just be his face. :P
