Jim Carrey Befuddled Over Offer to Join Kick-Ass 2 Cast

Jim Carrey is reportedly being sought out for a role in Kick-Ass 2, but even the actor himself is perplexed as to why, since the movie isn't really his typical fare.

"Does the character talk with his butt?" asked a confused Carrey, but he was informed that the character he is wanted for, "The Colonel," is a born again Christian Superhero who forms a team of misfit superheroes called Justice Forever, and does not, at least in the comic book, talk with his butt.

"Well, I can probably wear prosthetics and make really silly faces, right?" asked the actor, becoming flustered. As it turns out, however, silly faces aren't really called for in the film, and the hyper-realistic take on superheroes from Mark Millar makes prosthetics unlikely.

"How about some physical humor involving diarrhea? That's it. There must be diarrhea." said Carrey, grasping at straws. Sorry, Jim, there will be none of that in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, which is set to hit theaters on June 28, 2013. Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Nicholas Cage will all be returning for the sequel.

"Well what the hell do they want me for?!" Carrey wondered. What indeed? Technically, Carrey did play the Riddler in 1995's Batman Forever, considered by many to be the second worst superhero movie ever made, behind Batman and Robin. "That never happened," claimed Carrey, indignant. The Outhouse pointed him to, which clearly lists him as starring in the film. "Never happened," he insisted.

As a last ditch effort, we showed Carrey some clips of Nicholas Cage's performance in the first movie. "Oh, okay then!" he exclaimed, finally getting it. "They just want bad acting! Well that fits."

Like a glove, Jim. Like a glove.
