LA Times caught up with "Iron Man 2" director Jon Favreau to talk about some cameos that fans can expect to see in the movie. He said that Stan Lee appears in a scene, and so does Bill O'Reilly. But the most important cameo for Favreau is one by the late Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, who died of an accidental drug overdose just weeks after shooting his part.
"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," said Favreau. Check out a shot of Goldstein from the movie.
In the scene, a boozed-up Tony Stark is celebrating his birthday with a wild party at his Malibu oceanfront estate and there, behind the turntables, is Goldstein. Stark, in his superhero armor, is shown dancing to 2Pac's hip-hop classic "California Love" as Goldstein tends to the vinyl. Then, as the party tilts into a nasty direction, the hero makes a request: "Adam, I need a phat beat."
The film is actually dedicated to Goldstein. His name and his trademark lightning-bolt symbol will appear in the end credits.
