Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Sam Rockwell - "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Tv Series - Vulture.com Interview

Even Justin Hammer [in Iron Man 2] could dance, though.
Justin Hammer had a little funk, but [Jon] Favreau egged me on to do that. I was sort of on the fence about that one. He’s an arms dealer, that guy. But we made him very flamboyant, so that was fun to work with, because we wanted a Lex Luthor kind of character.
Are you relieved that they didn’t kill Justin Hammer off, since it appears that was the original plan, according to recently released storyboards? Because you can come back, perhaps on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with your pal Clark Gregg?
Ah! I was hoping to come back in one of the Avengers films and come after Gwyneth Paltrow, because that’s what they set up, that I was going to get revenge on Gwyneth for getting me arrested or something. I could do a Cape Fear thing with Gwyneth. But they’ve got a lot of mojo in there already, so I don’t know if they need another pirate like me in the mix there! [Laughs.] Maybe S.H.I.E.L.D. is the way to go.
