Exclusive: Sam Rockwell Video Interview IRON MAN 2 at Comic-Con

Sam Rockwell at comic-con 2009 for Iron Man 2 - slice.jpg

I am so happy I interviewed Sam Rockwell at this year’s Sundance for “Moon” and “The Wining Season“. It’s because of those two interviews (and a random meeting at the Park City Einstein’s Bagels) that Sam remembered who I was when I ran into him backstage at this year’s Comic-Con. So even though I wasn’t scheduled to talk with him about “Iron Man 2″, he asked his publicist to give me some time and that’s why you can watch an exclusive interview with this great actor.

During the interview we talked about the critical and commercial success of “Moon”, what was making “Iron Man 2″ like, what can fans expect in the movie, and he reveals he still uses an acting coach to help him prepare for each role. If you’re a fan of this great actor, I promise you’ll love the interview! Take a look after the jump:

Finally, a BIG thank you to Sam Rockwell for giving me some of his time after a long day at Comic-Con.

    Hey, Collider, BUY A DECENT MICROPHONE.
    How many of these interviews are you going to screw up with all that noisy crap.

    I love how the only production photo you have of his character is basically a photo of Rhodey w/ a blurry pic in the back of what might as well be Gary Oldman.

    Sam ROCKED in MOON. Anyone who hasn’t seen it should drop what they’re doing and get to it.

    Cannot wait for Iron Man. Im glad they were so prepared for the Con & delivered everything on schedule.

    I also like the Bill Gates Steve Jobs approach to their characters. That sounds like a winning choice.
