Russian bodybuilder Olga Kurkulina has apparently won the iconic role of Mother Russia in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall
, which Jeff Wadlow is currently shooting in Canada and England. Mother Russia is the Red Mist’s Russian bodyguard, a former member of both the Spetsnaz and the KGB, who was the Russian Premier’s bodyguard until she killed the rest of the security in a drunken rage.

According to Bleeding Cool
, Ms. Kurkulina was quoted in the muscle magazine Iron World
confirming that she got a key role in the movie, "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 in a local studio. Now I train hard, learning new movements for attack and defense working with professionals on my acting and speech training."
Kukulina is the latest addition to a cast that includes Jim Carrey (see "Jim Carrey Joins 'Kick-Ass 2' Cast
