First, a quick recap of Iron Man villains: Jeff Bridges anchored Iron Man's genesis story, with Faran Tahir supporting as the terrorist leader Raza (who may return as Mandarin in Iron Man 3), and Iron Man 2 will see Mickey Rourke battle as Whiplash with Sam Rockwell behind the scenes as Justin Hammer. So with that in mind, could fans see Couples Retreat actor Faizon Love as a villain in Iron Man 3? Love told Moviehole that he almost appeared in the first Iron Man.
They already tried to put me in Iron Man but I couldn't. I think I would make it suck. I don't know that genre. These guys do. I didn't know it was a real comic book. [Jon Favreau] thinks I'd make a good villain. Maybe I should just get it out of my way and just do it?
Love should take Favreau's advice. Someone has to play Crusher. Then again, Love took Favreau's offer to appear in Couples Retreat, which isn't looking so good. Posted 10.08.09 by Ryan
