DJ AM cameo to stay in “Iron Man 2″

April 22nd, 2010

A cameo by the late DJ AM (aka Adam Goldstein) shot two months before his death last summer will remain in next month’s sure-to-be-blockbuster Iron Man 2.

Director Jon Favreau has told the Los Angeles Times that he wanted to keep it in as a fond farewell to AM.

“We tried to make it respectful, and for people who know him, they’ll get a kick out of it, and for people who don’t, it will sort of slide by without much notice,” Favreau said.

While AM’s role isn’t exactly a pivotal one – he plays himself DJing a part at Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) bachelor pad – the DJ is asked by the billionaire superhero to give him “a fat beat.”

Favreau added, “I’m just a fan of his, just an admirer of his work, and it was supposed to be a one-day bit. But Robert took a real shine to him, as we all did. His energy was amazing, he was such an inspiring guy and there was a lot of depth to him and this positive energy.

“He ended up staying on with us for about a week and it was just great; we set up this turntable and between takes he would give me pointers.

You can see DJ AM in perhaps his final onscreen moment when Iron Man 2 opens on May 7th.
