Is Mother Russia one of the villains in “Kick-Ass 2”?

Mother Russia from "Kick-Ass"

Posted by on

It seems as though Christopher Mintz-Plasse won’t be alone in his villainous pursuits in “Kick-Ass 2.”

Anyone who’s read the Mark Millar-penned comic book of the same name knows that the stakes are heightened for Kick-Ass. His nemesis, Mintz-Plasse’s Red Mist, changes his alterego’s name to The Motherfucker and puts together a posse of supervillains to start wreaking havoc on the communities around them. It looks like casting has already begun for those baddies, or at least for The Motherfucker’s bodyguard “Mother Russia.”

Moviehole got their hands on a casting description being sent out to agencies asking for an “extremely tall, large, fit female of 25 to 40 to play the part.”

“Classic Villain,” the listing reads. “An ex-KBG officer who is now being paid by the week by Chris to fight in his group — she is easily the most skilled and just a ruthless killer in general. Described as a ‘roided-out female bodybuilder, she needs to be extremely physically imposing and muscular, though still come across as feminine. As tall as possible (6ft and over only). Indicate height on submission.”

Though Millar had previously claimed that production would begin this month, it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen. However Mintz-Plasse did walk around Comic-Con saying that “things are looking good” to any outlet who would talk to him, so we’re guessing “Kick-Ass 2” will go in front of the camera sooner rather than later. However, things have gone from bad to worse in the movie’s storyline, and Mintz-Plasse’s character is going to be at the center of it.

“There’s a lot of blood and a lot of murdering,” he told MTV News. “If I’m playing my character, you know, it’s got to happen. … [‘Kick-Ass 2’ is] going to be rated X. NC-17.”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
