Sam Rockwell is open to playing his 'Iron Man 2' character Justin Hammer in a sequel to this year's 'Avengers Assemble'
Sam Rockwell is open to reprising his 'Iron Man 2' role in an 'Avengers Assemble' sequel.
The 44-year-old star - who appeared opposite Robert Downey Jr. in 2010's superhero movie as Justin Hammer - would love to star as the rival weapons manufacturer again in the 2015 follow up to this year's Marvel blockbuster 'Avengers Assemble', which starred a number of his friends.
He said: "[Jeremy] Renner's a good friend of mine, and I know [Mark] Ruffalo, I know Scarlett [Johansson]. It would be fun to play with all those guys. That would be a blast."
Sam will be hitting the big screen on Wednesday (05.12.12) in 'Seven Psychopaths' and he says the whole cast is "out there".
He added to The Sunday Telegraph newspaper: "We're all out there. When Colin was first on the scene he was, like, smoking and drinking on red carpets. Everyone was, like: what is he doing? Is his publicist going to tell him not to do that? He wore this hat, and you're like: what the f**k is going on here? This is chaos.
"Woody smokes pot and doesn't eat meat. That's his rebellion. And Chris takes out all the punctuation from his scripts. I mean, who are these guys? They're nuts. You know what I mean? It's like hanging out with three Elvises.
"I think I have my version so, yeah, you could say four Elvises. But my Elvis is probably a little more on the eccentric side."
