Paul Bettany is returning for Iron Man 2 . Don't remember him from the first one? Neither did I. But Bettany played Jarvis, Tony Stark's computer voice that was heard throughout the house and in the suit.
Bettany told reporters on Friday that he would be back
for the sequel, in a recording studio, of course.
"That was a very peculiar experience, because I know Jon Favreau
," Bettany began. "He said, 'Do you want to do this thing?' I said, 'Yeah.'"
"He was in L.A., and I turned up at a recording studio in New York City, and all I remember doing is laughing for about two hours and eating some croissants and then going home."
But because it was such a one-off experience, Bettany said that he had actually forgotten working on Iron Man. "Somebody said to me about six months later, 'Are you the voice in Iron Man?' And I said no. They went, 'Really?' And I went, 'Oh, no, I am! I am.'"
