‘Kick Ass 2’: Mother Russia Revealed!

A few days ago, we showed you a series of behind the scenes shots from the set of Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, courtesy of director Jeff Wadlow. One shot in particular (above) featured Christopher Mintz-Plasse and an unknown bodybuilder. This was such an obvious tease to Mother Russia; Red-Mist’s body guard. However, with the shot being cut off at the neck, fans we’re left wondering which actress actually landed the part.

Is it Chyna? Gina Carano? Or, perhaps, the comeback of Brigitte Nielsen? Nope, none of the above. The buff mystery lady is an unknown, actually.

The role has gone to *drumroll* Russian born bodybuilder, Olga Kurkulina.

According to Bleeding Cool, and their translation from the Russian site Iron World, Olga confirmed her hiring to the cast as the six foot tall ex-KGB agent under the employ of Red-Mist:

“I competed against other candidates from America, Switzerland and Holland. I spent three weeks in the casting, which took place at Pinewood studios. At the end, the director told me that I was getting a role. This was a difficult time psychologically and physically.

Many people worked hard and from the heart to help me. On August 30th we fly to Toronto for a month’s shooting on location, and then we go back to London where stunts will be filmed at a local studio.

Now I’m train hard, learning new movements for attack and defense working with professionals on my acting and speech training.”

Also included in the interview with Olga was a picture of her beside stunt coordinator Buster Reeves, and another unknown individual only known as Michael. Maybe an assistant to Reeves, who knows? Anyway, here’s your first real look at Mother Russia:

She’s perfect to play Mother Russia! There defiantly won’t be any fake ass accents here, since Olga is a born and raised Russian. She’s also pure muscle. Which, if you’re into that sort of thing, is super sexy. Both attributes befit the role. She’s authentic as it gets.

I’ll be having a few strong BDSM based dreams in my future, that’s for sure.

Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall sees the return of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicolas CageChristopher and Mintz-Plasse. Fresh faces include John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Morris Chestnut, Lindy Booth and Jim Carrey. It will hit theaters June 28th, 2013.
