Robert Downey Jr Talks ‘Iron Man,’ ‘Hulk’ Cameos

During a recent sit-down with actor Robert Downey Jr., the question of cameos was the burning question at hand. After all, we’ve been reporting for the past year that everyone from Sam Jackson to Hilary Swank are seemingly making the trek to Tony Stark’s neck of the woods. And that’s not even including William Hurt’s admission to MTV News in February that he shares a scene with Downey in “The Incredible Hulk.”

So how did Downey respond to our inquiries? Well, he did admit that one unnamed star would “probably appear in the end credits” of “Iron Man,” but refused to confirm whether the subject in question is Jackson, Swank or a third party. He managed to be a bit more forthcoming on the topic of his “Hulk” cameo, revealing the moment in question.

“It happens to be a scene where I basically approach [William Hurt’s character, General Ross], and we may be considering going into some sort of limited partnership together,” Downey stated.

Adding, Downey said, “The great thing is he — and I don’t want to give too much away — but he’s in disrepair at the time I find him. It was really fun seeing him play this really powerful character who’s half in the bag.”
