“Kick-Ass 2” reveals new poster, draws in Donald Faison


Posted by on

“Kick-Ass 2” is real, it’s happening and it will be coming to theaters in 2013.

That’s at least what the movie’s Facebook page is telling us in its brand new poster, which you can see above. There’s not much in the way of spoilers here, but the teaser does tout a 2013 release date.

That aligns with what we’ve heard about the project so far. “Kick-Ass 2” is planned to begin filming next month, and rumors say that those involved with the film are targeting a May 2013 release date. That’s a surprisingly quick turnaround for a movie we’ve been waiting so long to see.

But at least casting is moving forward relatively quickly on the flick. Hot off the news that John Leguizamo had joined the cast as Red Mist’s bodyguard Javier, Deadline is reporting that Donald Faison is also eying a part in the flick.

So far we’ve only been focusing on Red Mist’s The Motherf–ker’s gang of evildoers, but what about Kick-Ass’s team, Justice Forever? Well, apparently Faison is interested in playing Doctor Gravity, one of Kick-Ass’s allies in the fight against his archnemesis. Faison works best in supporting roles, so this seems like it could be a perfect fit.

“Kick-Ass 2″ will be based on Mark Millar’s comic books “Hit-Girl” and “Kick-Ass 2,” and will follow the continued adventures of the titular superhero. The sequel will be directed by Jeff Wadlow, with “Kick-Ass” director Matthew Vaughn still acting as producer. The movie’s three main stars — Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Mintz-Plasse — will all be back to reprise their roles, and even Nicholas Cage will make an appearance.

Do you think Faison is a good fit for this film? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.
