Rol liked Iron Man, too:

Finally we have the world’s undisputed Greatest Living Actor in the role of Stark’s backstabbing father figure, Obadiah Stane. I couldn’t have been more excited when I heard they’d cast The Dude himself in this role, though I was also a little concerned that they’d try to make him too much of a cartoon baddy. Not the case – though only given a few crucial scenes to work with, Jeff Bridges alternates between sympathetic and chilling throughout. And it’s refreshing to see a villain in a comic book movie totally devoid of the OTT histrionics that usually come hand-in-hand with the part…

Oh, and look at how he holds that whisky glass… just like The Dude with his White Russian. I was just dying to hear him say, “Hey, Tony – there’s a beverage here!”

Damn, wish I’d noticed that…

    and at one point he interupts Tony/RDJnr with an “am i wrong?” which had to be written in for him.

    Rol: Cool! Is there a decent health plan? ;0)

    Puck: I’m off to see it again tomorrow. I think I may do some prep work tonight by watching ‘The Big Lebowski’. Maybe ‘Swingers’, too.

    Like I need an excuse…
