Kick-Ass 2 continues to fill all the holes in its cast list, with the most recent one filling in the role of Red Mist’s formidable bodyguard, Mother Russia. The role went out to Russian bodybuilder Olga Kurkulina, who certainly has the towering physique required for the role.
The film has recently added Jim Carrey to its cast list, along with Donald Faison and John Leguizamo. They will be joining returning cast members Christopher Mintz-plasse, Chloe Moretz, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Taylor-Johnson has recently commented on the journey undertaken by his onscreen nemesis, the Red Mist (Mintz-plasse), and how the script managed to steer away from some of the more dastardly things the character has done in the comics:
“It’s pretty surprising the journey he goes on and it’s fantastic, a really strong role for him,” says Taylor-Johnson. “In the comic books they tackle quite a few disturbing things that I don’t think we’re going to put in, for the better, but I think it’s got more of a narrative in the script.”
Kick-Ass 2 opens in the UK on 19 July 2013.
