Donald Faison is reportedly in negotiations to join the cast of the sequel to 2010's Kick-Ass, to play a character named Doctor Gravity.
Who is Doctor Gravity? According to the Kick-Ass wiki:
Doctor Gravity is a superhero inspired by Kick-Ass. Doctor Gravity is an English major who highlights as a superhero by night, working with Kick-Ass and Justice Forever. However, to the world at large he is a physics professor at Columbia who built a baseball bat-like pole called the "Gravity Pole" which can make something twenty times its actual weight. If he flips it around it allows him to float. In actuality though it is a baseball bat covered in tin foil and he came up with his backstory to make a statement about who he wants to be.
And, oh yeah, he's black, as you can see in the image above.
If cast, Faison will join returning stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage. John Leguizamo is another new addition.
Principal photography starts in in September, in Toronto and London, under Jeff Wadlow's direction. Matthew Vaughn, who directed the 2010 original, is serving as producer on the sequel.
Faison currently stars in The Exes, on TVLand.
