Robert Downey Jr. Suits Up For The ‘Iron Man’ Premiere

April 25th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Iron Man, Iron Man, does whatever a….guy in a big metal suit…can. Ugh. Here are some snaps from the Iron Man UK premiere. Robert Downey Jr. stars as billionaire inventor Tony Stark, who creates and dons a crazy advanced battle suit to fight crime. Kind of like when I get my keyboard to fight…good taste. Right.

Robert gets props. This bitch was toe-up some years back when he was all kinds of high and breaking into houses to take naps and saying drugs were the shotgun he was putting in his mouth but he couldn’t stop. Now look at him! He got clean and got on the success train!

And his greatest challenge? Working with Gwyneth Paltrow. Jesus, imagine working with her pale, mildly dissatisfied passive aggressive ass? I’d want repulsor blasts in my gloves, too! She plays the villain right? Stankula? Moue of Disgust Woman?

Do you think Simon Pegg would consent to some sort of relationship with the boyfriend and me? He can bring Nick Frost, too. It can be a like a sit-com with two Brits and two Americans, but with lots of pale guy flesh.

    Simon Pegg is cute but he looks like he was grown in a plant pot away from sunlight. Germination or whatever it’s called.

    I like the sitcom idea JH. Sort of ‘Friends’ without the lighting or tans. Documentary style sit com about 4 pale friends, following there relationship dilemmas and day to day events like the fall out from spilling coffee on homeless people in the subway on the way to work hungover.
    Gritty and real with an edge of black humour.

    I’d watch it !
