Just days ago, Donald Faison (‘Scrubs’) was added to the cast of Mark Millar’s ‘Kick Ass 2’ as Dr. Gravity, as was Yancy Butler who will reprise her role as Red Mist’s mother.
Now, Deadline reports that the superhero parody, officially subtitled ‘Balls to the Wall’ has a release date of June 28, 2013. With barely over a year until theater time, ‘Kick Ass 2’ is ramping up production even faster.
The latest round of casting news adds Robert Emms (‘War Horse’) as Insect Man and Morris Chestnut (‘American Horror Story’) as Hit-Girl’s new guardian. I haven’t read ‘Kick-Ass 2’ past the first issue so I’m not sure who Insect Man is but, on the other hand, I do like Chestnut so I can definitely see him as the new father figure for Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz). If you recall, her real father (played by Nicholas Cage didn’t quite make it through the first ‘Kick Ass’ movie).
Emms and Chestnut will be joining the aforementioned Faison, Butler, and Moretz along with other returning cast members Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist), and Nicholas Cage (Big Daddy). I assume that last one will only be in flashback sequences.
So what do you think of the ‘Kick Ass 2’ casting so far? Voice up in the comments below and let us know.
