'Iron Man' forges role for Paltrow

Empty

Academy Award winner Gwyneth Paltrow has joined the cast of "Iron Man," the first feature film to be produced independently by Marvel Entertainment (HR 1/17). Jon Favreau is directing the movie, which will be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Paltrow joins Robert Downey Jr. — who plays armor-clad superhero Iron Man and his alter ego, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark — and Terrence Howard, who will play Stark's best friend, Rhodey.

Paltrow will play Stark's assistant, Virginia "Pepper" Potts, one of the few people who can go toe-to-toe with him and who occasionally serves as his conscience.
