Donald Faison, best known for his breakout role in 1995’s Clueless, is reportedly in serious talks to join Universal’s Kick-Ass: Balls to the Walls.

The gory and violent comic book adaptation will see returning cast members Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-PlasseNicolas Cage, and possibly Omari Hardwick resume their roles as powerless superheroes gone wild in the upcoming sequel.

Faison will play the Dr. Gravity, a baseball bat-wielding sidekick to Johnson’s Kick-Ass lead character. According to Movieweb, “Dr. Gravity claims to be a physics professor who invented the ‘Gravity Pole,’ a device which can make something 20 times its actual weight. ”  However, that’s not really the case.  Turns out he is a college student majoring in English and the “Gravity Pole” is actually just a baseball bat covered in tinfoil.

Faison’s most recent big screen role was 2010’s Skyline. He is currently starring on the second season of TVLand’s The Exes.

Kick-Ass 2 begins production next month in London and is expected to be released sometime next year.
