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.

Even though DJ AM's estate settled their suit against Global Exec Aviation this past winter, the plane operation company responsible for the crash that injured AM and Travis Barker and killed four others, has slapped a suit against the plane's manufacturers.

Global Exec Aviation and ITAS Inc. are seeking more than $1 million from Learjet and Bombardier, stating in the legal docs that the aircraft had "unreasonably dangerous defects" before the horrendous crash.

Go get 'em!

Stemming from the jet crash that left him with severe injuries and four dead, Travis Barker settled the lawsuit against defendants Clay Lacy Aviation, Goodyear Tire & Rubber and Global Exec Aviation among others.

Although the terms of their settlement are confidential, they struck a deal during a mediation session on November 18th as did Thelma Still, the mother of Travis' bodyguard, Che Still.

DJ AM's estate are also suing for wrongful death as they feel the accident led to his overdose in August. The case is still pending.

We all know DJ AM loved him some shoes since he had over 800 pairs. Jealous.

Before his unfortunate passing a few months ago, AM had been designing his own shoes for Nike and now we have a first look at what he came up with.

No word has been said about when they will be hitting shelves, but if we had to guess, sometime soon. It is the holiday season, after all.

Will U be getting a pair???
