Christopher Mintz-Plasse reveals Chloe Moretz used to 'beat him up' as they promote Kick-Ass 2
We didn't think people would enjoy it, because we were just acting like fools. But when it came out, it overnight just blew up. I'm not going to deny myself the chance to work with these great directors just because it's a nerdy role. There's an edge of poignant desperation to Ed, his supernatural geek in Fright Night. If you don't want to know what happens to him, stop reading now. Rejected by his former pal Charley Anton Yelchinwho's now one of the cool kids, Ed blackmails him into coming vampire-hunting by threatening to broadcast embarrassing photos from their dressing-up fantasy play sessions.
The vampire hunt ends badly for Ed when he finds what he's looking for in the form of Colin Farrellhungry for blood to suck and scenery to chew. That ends badly too, and slightly more messily. Then for the arm they created this really gnarly nub that had blood spurting out the end. Though my arm was just folded behind my back most of the time — old-school magic trick," he nods with a McLovin-ish grin.
It took him four hours to put the makeup on, an hour to get it off again and he loved it.
It's no coincidence that Mintz-Plasse's rise has coincided with a big changes in the dynamics of Hollywood teen movies. Now a teen movie is practically unmarketable without a square, bad-at-sports, badly dressed, awkward-with-girls young man at its centre — from Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man to Napoleon Dynamite to the films of Michael Cera and Jesse Eisenberg. But that's not Mintz-Plasse's niche; he's the support nerd. What he brings to the party is a different tier of nerdism to put the hero's faux-nerd qualities into perspective — just in case people think the hero's too geeky.
It was the same in Kick-Ass: Aaron Johnson played the social-outcast hero, despite being a handsome, athletic young man in actuality they just put glasses on him.

Mintz-Plasse's character was his nerdier foil — the cowardly, comic-book-collecting rich kid. Tellingly, Mintz-Plasse auditioned for the lead role in Kick-Ass, but director Matthew Vaughn shrewdly cast him as the support. Anton Yelchin is another nerd hero, but Mintz-Plasse is the real nerd.
We're there to make people laugh. I was in drama class, and I'm a big movie and music buff. The big studios doubted the success of an adaptation as a violent superhero, which made the film be independently financed, but this gave him the freedom to make the film the way he imagined, without having to worry about high-censorship.
Vaughn believed enough in the project to raise the money himself. On the set Vaughn jokingly referred to Kick-Ass as something that was going to be "the most expensive home movie I ever made". Romita created the pencils, Tom Palmer did the inks, and Dean White did the colours. Vaughn gave Romita a carte blanche on the art direction of the sequence. Australian Family Association spokesman John Morrissey said that "the language [was] offensive and the values inappropriate; without the saving grace of the bloodless victory of traditional superheroes".
This caused Tookey to claim that he was a victim of cyber-bullying. I'd be stuck in my room until I was 20! I would never in a million years say that. I'm an average, everyday girl.
The film received an R rating by the MPAA for "strong brutal violence throughout, pervasive language, sexual content, nudity and some drug use—some involving children", and it received a 15 rating from the BBFC. These numbers for Kick-Ass's debut weekend gross included non-weekend earnings, as the film was previewed during the Thursday night prior to its release.
The site's consensus reads: This crime against cinema is twisted, cynical, and revels in the abuse of childhood". Peter Howell of the Toronto Star gave Kick-Ass a top rating, writing that the production "succeeds as a violent fantasy about our perilous and fretful times, where regular citizens feel compelled to take action against a social order rotting from within.
Even as she wields outlandish weaponry, she comes off as adorable. Roger Ebert found the film highly offensive and "morally reprehensible", giving it one out of four stars.
