Ending months of speculation as to who would play Tony Stark's assistant in Iron Man, Gwyneth Paltrow has been cast as Virginia 'Pepper' Potts in the film. Stark, to be portrayed by Robert Downey, Jr., has a long time flirtation with Potts in the comic, but the role on film is unclear. Will she be his romantic interest? Odds are pretty good she will, considering Paltrow is a big-time celebrity.
I smell a crossover here. Is it possible that Paltrow will tap her hubby to get Coldplay to do the theme for the film? Perhaps a cameo by baby Apple? Who can ever tell? The upshot is that she's hot, and is a pretty terrific actress. So that's good.
