Jim Carrey has revealed he will be unrecognisable in the Kick-Ass sequel.

The comic actor is joining Chloe Moretz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse in the follow up to their hit 2010 film and told Fandango that his look and personality as vigilante Colonel Stars is very "different" for him.

He went on: "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 'Okay, might have to do some work'.

"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," the star added of his role in the comic book caper.

Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, directed by Jeff Wadlow, is due to be released this summer.
