"Jim is Jim," Nic Cage said at the premiere of The Frozen Ground last night when asked for his thoughts on Jim Carrey's recent decision to not help promote Kick-Ass 2 due to his newfound stance on movie violence. "Jim is gonna do what Jim wants to do and that's his decision..." Many fans were shocked that Carrey - who plays Colonel Stars & Stripes in Jeff Wadlow's big screen adaptation of the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. comic book series - would withdraw his support from the movie after happily taking a paycheck to appear in it. "I still believe in freedom of speech, I still believe that [the film is] an art, and I don't have enough proof yet about that correlation," added Cage. As for reports of him reprising the role of Big Daddy in some sort of cameo, the actor once again denied these rumours. "I'm not in Kick-Ass 2, there's been much said that I am; I'm not, just to go on record right now."
