Morris Chestnut & Robert Emms Join The Cast Of KICK-ASS 2
As Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass sequel gears up for a September shoot, we have 2 new cast additions. Chestnut will seemingly be replacing Omari Hardwick as Sergeant Marcus Williams, while Emms will play "Insect Man"..
According to Deadline, Morris Chestnut has landed a "strong role" in Kick-Ass 2, playing "the guardian for the young butt kicker played by Chloe Moretz". Now as we know, that would be Hit Girl's late father's former partner Marcus Williams, played by Omari Hardwick in the first movie. Chestnut was last seen on the big screen in Think Like A Man, but will be more familiar to sci-fi/horror fans from his tv appearances in the likes of V and American Horror Story
The site also reveal that British actor Robert Emms (Warhorse, Anonymous) will play "Insect Man", a former cop who became a hero after becoming disillusioned by the lack of competence in the police department and joined Kick-Ass's Justice Forever team.
Jeff Wadlow will direct Kick-Ass 2, which will begin shooting this September in Toronto and London, and now has an official release date (find that out below). Aaron Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are all set to return, and we had our first new cast additions in John Leguizamo and Donald Faison. A casting call has also gone out for the character "Mother Russia", so expect a bit of news on that soon enough.
