Hey Now! Shandling in Iron Man 2

Cumquat here,

“Iron Man 2” started shooting this week (according to director Jon Favreau over on his Twitter page) and apparently Charlie Chaplin and Larry Sanders have been spotted sharing a latte over lunch.

Yep, according to IESB, TV funnyman Garry Shandling (“The Larry Sanders Show”, “What Planet Are You From?”) has joined the cast of the super sequel. Nobody has the foggiest who he’s playing though.

‘’Shandling was on set today in an undisclosed location shooting the final scene of the film, yes these things never go in order’’, says the site. “We do not know his character just yet, we were told he was a senator or a reporter or something like that, unsure’’.

Maybe he appears in the final scene of the film as Captain America!? Setting up his film?… or not. Yup. Took that too far. Could’ve just saved Clint the webspace and left that out.

Update! Seems the scoop is on the money – Downey Jr told Extra! a couple of days ago that Shandling is indeed in the flick. Thanks to ‘Kim’ for the heads up!

Should be interesting conversations going on between Downey and Shandling – you’ll recall they both dated small-screen beanpole Calista Flockhart.
