Faison circles role in upcoming sequel.
‘Scrubs’ star Donald Faison is in negotiations to play Doctor Gravity in Jeff Wadlow’s ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ says Deadline.
Doctor Gravity is an English major by day (though he claims to be a physics professor) who moonlights as a superhero by night, teaming with Kick-Ass to create the masked vigilante group Justice Forever. The character’s weapon of choice is a baseball bat-like pole called the “Gravity Pole,” that supposedly helps him float off the ground. In actuality it is indeed a baseball bat, covered in tin foil.
Faison will be joining Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz who are reprising their roles of Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl respectively, with Christopher Mintz-Plasse set to return as Red Mist. Nicolas Cage and John Leguizamo co-star. Unfortunately we have yet to hear who has landed the role of the villainous Mother Russia, a towering, ex-KGB officer who serves as Red Mist’s bodyguard.
Production is rumoured to be kicking off in September, with filming to take place in Toronto and London. The film is expected
