He doesn’t log in for the same reasons I do – to see how 17 year old girls fill their newly expanded to 300 picture profiles – he comes on to give us the good news about his upcoming Iron Man, which is just two weeks from being invincible:

Gwyneth Paltrow has been cast as Virginia Pepper Potts. I met her on an idie called Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle many years ago. We begin filming in eight weeks.

Stan Winston is working on the suit. Sets are being built. Fergus and Ostby (Children of Men) are working on the script. Matty Libatique is shooting it. Everything is really coming together.

This is a good bunch of people, and it’s pretty damn exciting. I can’t wait to get a look at what Winston is cooking up. I wish I had a joke for you here, but I’m just feeling good about this one. Fuck the hatas!
