Clark Duke (ABC Family’s Greek) has joined the cast of Matthew Vaughn’s (Stardust) forthcoming independently-funded adaptation of Mark Millar’s (Wanted) comic book Kick-Ass. He will play Marty, the hero’s best friend.
About 17, a chubby Caucasian high school student who loves comic books. He is Dave’s funny best friend. Together with Dave and Todd, he loves to go to comic book stores, and checks out the latest issues, while talking about school, girls, the futility of teenaged life, and the exciting adventures of Myspace insta-celebrity Kickass. He never suspects that Kickass is in fact Dave Lizewski — and neither would you if you knew Dave.
Duke thus joins Aaron Johnson (Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging), Lyndsy Fonseca (ABC’s Desperate Housewives), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad), Nicolas Cage (Bangkok Dangerous) and Chloe Moretz (ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money) in the movie, set for 2009. See a side-by-side comparision of characters and actors here. Meanwhile, you can catch Duke in the funny-looking Sex Drive, premiering October 16th in the Netherlands (?) and a day later in the US.
