Kick-Ass 2, already set to feature the whole old gang as well as John Leguizamo, is hoping to score Jim Carrey. He'd play the Colonel, a flashy fellow who helps get the ragtag crime-fighting band back together. Carrey's history playing comic book characters — or otherwise animation-originated characters — is lengthy: Batman Forever's Riddler, the Mask, the Grinch, the titular voice in Horton Hears a Who. He also dressed as Kick-Ass himself onstage with Conan O'Brien once. Give it some thought, Jim.
