The cast of Iron Man continues to grow and this time it is Starman that has hopped aboard.

Jeff Bridges for Iron Man

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment have picked up Jeff Bridges to join the cast of Iron Man, the comic book adaptation being directed by Jon Favreau.

Robert Downey Jr. stars as armor-clad superhero Iron Man and his alter ego, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark. Bridges will portray a confidant and close business associate of Stark, a longtime employee at defense contractor Stark Industries who plays a major role in shaping Stark's life.

Marvel president, Kevin Feige had this to say on Bridges added involvement:

We've been talking to Jeff for long time. He's excited about doing a movie like this, and we're excited to have him in this particular role. There are many facets to this character which I can't discuss, but looking at the spectrum of all of Jeff's roles, this fits in nicely with the man who played Starman, Tucker, Big Lebowski with a little bit Tron thrown in. This rounds out our ensemble, and I think it's one of the strongest casts ever assembled for one of our films.

Bridges joins a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Terrence Howard.

Filming is scheduled to begin this March in Los Angeles.

Stay tuned for updates.
