John Leguizamo Joins KICK-ASS 2 Cast

John Leguizamo Joins KICK-ASS 2 Cast

It seems this one is finally picking up steam. The versatile actor has signed on to star as a character named Javier in the Jeff Wadlow directed sequel to the awesome Kick-Ass..

Deadline reports that John Leguizamo (Spawn, Land Of The Dead, Summer Of Sam) is the first new cast member to sign on to star in the upcoming sequel to Mathew Vaughn's Kick-Ass. Apparently he will play Javier, one of the bodyguards assigned to protect Red Mist (this time calling himself "Motherfuc*er", leader of "The Toxic Mega-c*nts) played by the returning Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz are also set to reprise their roles, and interestingly, Deadline also report that Nicolas Cage is too. As we know, his character Big Daddy dies in the first movie so I have no idea if this is a mistake, or there will be flashbacks or something. We'll clear it up as soon as we have more details anyway.

One of my favorite actors! Can't wait!

This is good news. I loved the first film and I'm hopefully optimistic about the sequel. Wish Vaughn would come back to the director's chair though.

ughhhhhh Hes great in some films, HORRIBLE IN MOST

Extremely underrated actor. I think John Leguizamo is a great actor but has chosen a hand full of bad roles that over shadow his talent.

He is also has some great stand up comedy. He is all around a class act.
TheMalcontent - 7/30/2012, 7:32 PM
My point is I don't think John Leguizamo is a bad actor but more half of the movies he starred in sucked.

Love me some Johnny legs. HAY FAUSTO THE CHALK FULL OF LIFE IS FULL OF HEAVENLY COFFEY!! What the hell are you saying woman?

Nic cage should come back as 'Burn Daddy'...

Too soon?

He's an extremely talented actor and comedian! I think that he just isn't offered many good roles because of his ethnicity. He does have a very distinctive look. Just because he has been in a few stinkers doesn't mean he can't act. He has to make a living. Cut him some slack!

All you TDKR fanatics love Michael Caine and hold him in high esteem as an actor. That guy NEVER passed on a paycheck his entire career! For a time there back in the day it seemed like he was in 5-6 movies a year.

Including such gems as,...

The Hand, Mr. Destiny, Jaws: The Revenge,
On Deadly Ground, and, The Swarm!

not feeling this guy, at all.
maxxgone - 7/30/2012, 8:34 PM
please let the filmmakers remember that part 1 was very serious and solemn at times, and don't let this film turn in to over the top exploitation garbage.
KingEmperor - 7/30/2012, 8:59 PM
Coolness. I'm curious to know who he's playing.
whitmore55 - 7/30/2012, 9:18 PM
I hope he gets a good role. He is a very underrated actor. Very talented comedian. @dgabbor a Sloth is not a rodent.. Just saying.
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 7/30/2012, 9:44 PM
He will always be The Pest to me!
Ryguy88 - 7/30/2012, 10:12 PM
I lost interest when Vaughn dropped out.
Mego - 7/30/2012, 11:34 PM
He's a cool actor. I love to hear him rail on Steven Seagal for bullying him.
Now that Seagal's a preggo, he should try to kick his ass. Or bitch slap him in public.

The only way i want to see this dude is when he is playing Clown. I hated him in Land of the Dead!
OrganizedChaos - 7/31/2012, 12:21 AM

Jollem - 7/31/2012, 12:33 AM

BillyBatson1000 - 7/31/2012, 3:47 AM
I like this actor - check out Carlito's Way for a stronger idea of his 'menace'. He always gives 100%.
DDD - 7/31/2012, 4:33 AM

Pretty KICK-BUTT casting!
HarveyDent88 - 7/31/2012, 5:16 AM
Like this guy but this is a pointless sequel.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 7/31/2012, 9:02 AM
@RacerREX YOU [frick]ING COCKSUCKER , YOU NEVER BAD MOUTH MICHEAL CAINE! EVER!!, He is the ultimate baller!!!!
IIIAdamantiumIII - 7/31/2012, 9:02 AM
how is this a pointless sequel ? are you retarded ?
valeriesghost - 7/31/2012, 9:52 AM
John Leguizamo was great in romeo and Juliet, as well as Moulin Rouge. The guy is good, he just needs to fire his agent.
RacerREX - 7/31/2012, 12:31 PM
@ BossWalsh- Touche sir! I must concede in light of your well thought out and witty retort. You truly are representative of today's youth. A shining example we must all look to, while pondering the inadequacies of the current academic infrastructure.
