Hollywood heavyweight Jim Carrey has promised he will be unrecognisable in Kick-Ass 2, where he plays Mafia thug-turned-vigilante Colonel Stars.

“It’s going to be fun. It’s different for me. They called me up and said we want you to play this ex-Mafia enforcer, Sam DeStefano-style. So I looked at myself in the mirror and went, ‘OK, might have to do some work’,” Carrey told Fandango.

“I got my own make-up guys together and we just started experimenting and it’s amazing how little you have to do to completely change your personality. We came up with a guy that no-one is going to recognise as me. It’s so far away from anything that you’ve seen. It’s really fun.”

Kick Ass 2 is due in cinemas from  in cinemas 19 July 2013. Pick up the first film on Blu-ray for £7.27 or DVD for £5.65 from Amazon.co.uk.
