The late Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein is one of the celebrities making a cameo appearance in the upcoming film Iron Man 2.
Director Jon Favreau explained his decision to keep the scene in the film after Adam's death:
"We tried to make it respectful, and for people who know him, they'll get a kick out of it and for people who don't, it will sort of slide by without much notice. I was just a fan of his, just an admirer of his work, and it was supposed to be a one-day bit. But Robert [Downey, Jr.] took a real shine to him, as we all did. His energy was amazing, he was such a inspiring guy and there was a lot of depth to him and this positive energy.
"He ended up staying on with us for about a week and it was just great;, we set up this turntable and between takes he would give me pointers. Our heart goes out to his family and friends and we hope what we've done is pleasing to them and to the many, many people who held Adam in high regard."
Such lovely and sincere sentiments — we're looking forward to seeing the scene!
Iron Man 2 comes to theaters on April 30.
