Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah has long had an interest in Marvel's armored Avenger, Iron Man. The musician goes by the hip-hop nickname Tony Starks, and named his 1996 debut album Iron Man. So it's only fitting that he has a role in the upcoming Iron Man film. He described the experience to MTV:
I jumped in there for maybe 12 or 16 bars, nothing too major. It was a good look for the kid because Robert Downey Jr. recognized me as soon as I seen him. He was like, "Yo, Tony!" ... For him to recognize me, I was kinda surprised by that. I didn't know he even knew about the kid. ... We called each other Tony onscreen. I'm like, 'Tony Stark, I got your jet, I didn't mess it up.' He was like, 'I got the Bentley for you, I laced it up.' I had two girls with me, I was like, 'That's you [pointing toward the girls].' I sent two birds at him. It was a wrap for that scene. He's a cool dude and funny. Big up to Robert Downey Jr.
Iron Man stars Robert Downey, Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges, with Jon Favreau directing. The film comes to theatres May 2, 2008.
