WATCH: Jim Carrey Looks Masked And Uncomfortable As Colonel Stars On Toronto Set Of Kick-Ass 2

First Looks: Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars in 'Kick-Ass 2'

Is it me or does Jim Carrey look like he's dying a thousand deaths in the video below as he kills time on the set of Kick-Ass 2 in Toronto looking like the result of a night of passion between the Riddler's mom and Sgt. Rock. That actually could be a good thing since stand-up comics, which Carrey was before he became an ac-tor,  are great at converting humiliation and flop sweat into moments of brutal and dark comic brilliance — a tone that certainly worked for the first Kick-Ass movie.

Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars in 'Kick-Ass 2'

In the Matthew Vaughn-directed sequel, Carrey plays Colonel Stars, a former mob enforcer who, if the character remains true to the comic series, found religion and formed (with his brother, Lieutenant Stripes) Justice Forever, a superhero group that also included Night Bitch (Lindy Booth) and Insect Man (Robert Emms), who can both be seen with Carrey in the video. Aaron Johnson, who plays the green-suited title character is also on hand. In the John Romita Jr.-drawn, Mark Millar-written comic, Stars ends up in a showdown with Red Mist/The Motherfucker (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and his henchmen that does not turn out well.

Photos of Carrey in his crime-fighting get-up  were posted on The site also linked to the below YouTube video from that depicts Carrey and his co-stars on the set.

    Last time he wore a mask around his eyes -- as the Riddler -- it didn't turn out so well. Maybe he's having some anxiety about the role.

    That and every onlooker is shouting at him and snapping pictures...

    Can I simply say what a relief to search out somebody who actually is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You positively know easy methods to convey an issue to light and make it important. Extra people have to learn this and perceive this side of the story. I cant consider youre not more fashionable since you undoubtedly have the gift.
