The /Filmcast Interview: Sam Rockwell (Iron Man 2)

The /Filmcast Interview is a series of conversations with actors, directors, and other key figures from the entertainment industry. In this episode, I speak with actor Sam Rockwell about his role in Iron Man 2. Rockwell plays Justin Hammer, the CEO of Hammer Industries, and a direct rival to of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). In my opinion, Rockwell is one of the best things about the film. His performance as Justin Hammer is pitch perfect, a compelling combination of sleaziness, impotence, and egotism that plays off of Stark nicely.

Iron Man 2 is out in theaters on May 7, 2010.
