True Favreau story.
About four or five years ago I helped a friend of mine move from San Francisco to L.A. I was mad crazy to see some movie stars and on my third and last day there I hadn't seen a one. Hell, seeing Willie Ames would have made my day. So we went to this cafe called The Newsroom where my friend said he often sees actors "chillin'". No such luck for me. What we did see were a bunch of white guys wearing red bandanas "They're all trying to be Robert Rodriguez". OK, I says. So after we sit and order, I look to my right and sitting right next to me is John Favreau. I of course loved him in "Swingers" but at that time he was known to the world as Courtney Cox's (or was in Jennifer Anniston's) boyfriend in "Friends" for a few episodes. Not really much to the story. He sat right next to me with a cute chick and her (and his?) baby. In all due respect to him, Favreau attacked that hamburger like a grizzly bear. I swear he consumed it in a mere eight minutes.
That's it. End of story.
Oh, and for a great Favreau flick, rent "Made". It's like a fun and half-assed attempt to bring the comedy team of Favreau and Vince Vaugne back together again. I love that movie.

Regarding that Iron Man suit. Does he look as if he could walk three steps in that thing?? I never believed he was able to move in that tin can even back in those first Kirby issues that that suit is based on! And one more thing to bitch about: how was Iron Man able to bend his arms and legs when he switched to red and gold?? There were no hinges on the knees and elbows to bend.
