Los Angeles - Jim Carrey is being courted for Kick-Ass 2.

The 50-year-old funnyman is being pursued for a supporting role in Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, Jeff Wadlow's sequel to the 2010 kooky superhero comedy.

The Mask actor has been scouted to play The Colonel, who assembles a team of misfit superheroes to fight evil, according to Deadline.com.

It is thought the character could be Colonel Stars, who features in Mark Millar's comic book series as a born again Christian superhero who forgoes his mobster past to form the Justice Forever team.

Jim is reportedly a big fan of the original Kick-Ass film by Matthew Vaughn and is no stranger to superhero films, having played the Riddler in Batman Forever.

Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage are all set to reprise their roles in the superhero satire sequel.

New additions to the cast list include Donald Faison as Doctor Gravity, a student with delusions of grandeur and John Leguizamo as Javier, Red Mist's bodyguard.

Jim has just wrapped The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and has been linked to upcoming comedy Dumb and Dumber 2.

Universal are set to begin filming Kick-Ass 2 in September and the film is set for release in June 2013.
