Sam Rockwell chats Justin Hammer for Iron Man sequel

Sam Rockwell has revealed details about his character in Iron Man 2.

Rockwell will play the role of Justin Hammer, an English tycoon and arch nemesis of Iron Man’s alter ego, Tony Stark.

Speaking to MTV the actor revealed: “They wanted to go with a rival for Tony Stark who is closer to his age, and make him American.”

He went on to say that his character will have many fighting scenes, though he added that his comic book incarnation bears a striking resemblance to a fellow actor: “That looks like Jeremy Irons. I guess they couldn’t get Jeremy Irons for it.”
