Movies: Iron Man preview
The casting of the upcoming superhero flick "Iron Man" is what I consider a stroke of ironic genius. In the comics, Tony Stark (Iron Man's alter-ego secret identity) is wealthy, famous, and saddled with destructive bouts of alcoholism. Check out the trailer (if the YT video below doesn't work, try the official site):
Yes, that's right, it's Robert Downey Jr. as "Iron Man." It makes sense, in a strange way - why not get a real recovered drug addict to play a fictional recovered alcoholic?
