Kick-Ass 2 Casting Call for Mother Russia 0

Mother Russia Kick Ass 2

Normally, this would be reported as “Kick-Ass 2’s Villain Revealed”, but since the Kick-Ass movies follow the comic book closely, we’re going to assume that everybody already knows that the villain will be Red Mist, who is returning as a complete baddie, and his bodyguard, Mother Russia.

Mother Russia is a former KGB agent hired by Red Mist as a personal bodyguard, and serves as his secret weapon against Hit-Girl, since Red Mist himself is next to useless in a fight.

The official callout was procured by Moviehole.net, and in it, the requirement includes the need for someone who will look as imposing as the character in the comic book: “Classic Villain, an An ex-Spetsnaz and KGB who is now being paid by the week by Chris to fight in his group — she is easily the most skilled and just a ruthless killer in general. Described as a ‘roided-out female bodybuilder, she needs to be extremely physically imposing and muscular, though still come across as feminine. As tall as possible (6ft and over only). Indicate height on submission.”

As for the Red Mist, Mintz-Plasse has revealed that while they’re going to be changing some of the more lurid excesses that his character has done in the comic. For instance, they won’t be doing the rape scene, which is understandable considering that the movie gave the comic’s rape victim, Katie Deauxma, a more positive treatment.
