We've held off on reporting about Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell being cast in Iron Man 2 for some time now. Why you ask? Well we just didn't want to print rumors or lies, have you guys read it, brag to your friends about knowing it, and then being completely and totally wrong. We like to look out for you that way, but now it seems you can feel free to tell your friends all about Sam Rockwell, because he sure is. Here's what the man had to say about his Iron Man/Justin Hammer casting while pimping two movies at Sundance.
"Yeah, he's a rival. He takes over all the weapons stuff after Tony's left. I don't know if he takes over Stark Industries. I'm not really sure yet. He's a money dude. That's about all I can say ... They were like, we don't have a script but this is the deal and this is the character."
Shooting is set to take place this April, with a release date set for next year.
