Sam Rockwell Talks Iron Man 2
10.01.09 by Ryan
Sam Rockwell seems like the only cast member not interviewed at the Entertainment Tonight set visit, but IGN managed to catch up with Rockwell and find out more details about Justin Hammer, the character Rockwell plays in the movie.
He's a rival of Tony's — they are competitors in the weapons industry. I team up with Mickey Rourke and we decide we want to take him down and take down the Stark legacy. He's sort of like a cousin of the Charlie's Angels character I played. The smarmy cousin. But it's Mickey — he does the fighting and the kicking ass in the film.
Rockwell glowed about the Iron Man 2 cast.
It was great ... it was a good time, a lot of fun. It's like the all-stars; like the globe-trotters or something. You know, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth [Paltrow], Scarlett [Johansson], and Robert Downey Jr. And Sam Jackson's there too. It does feel like you're passing the ball with Michael Jordan and then onto Larry Bird.
After taking part in such a high-profile sequel, has Rockwell been hit by the superhero bug?
I would love to do something like that. It would have to be a pretty strange superhero. I would love to do that with someone like Duncan [Jones, who directed Rockwell in Moon]. Duncan and I could create something really cool. I would love to create a character like Indiana Jones or something like that.
