Could Sam Rockwell play Justin Hammer in the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show?


Sam Rockwell Iron Man 2 Justin Hammer

The much maligned Iron Man 2 may not have been the best of the trilogy (although it does seem to have aged well and I enjoyed it a lot more on a recent viewing).

One of the highlights for me was Sam Rockwell as the arms dealer, Justin Hammer.

It would be good to see the character again and it appears that Sam Rockwell would be up for returning to the role.

Here is what he had to say about it:

Justin Hammer had a little funk, but [Jon] Favreau egged me on to do that. I was sort of on the fence about that one. He’s an arms dealer, that guy. But we made him very flamboyant, so that was fun to work with, because we wanted a Lex Luthor kind of character.

Ah! I was hoping to come back in one of the Avengers films and come after Gwyneth Paltrow, because that’s what they set up, that I was going to get revenge on Gwyneth for getting me arrested or something. I could do a Cape Fear thing with Gwyneth. But they’ve got a lot of mojo in there already, so I don’t know if they need another pirate like me in the mix there! [Laughs.] Maybe S.H.I.E.L.D. is the way to go.

I for one would be more than happy to see him show up in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

How about you?
