After much thought and deliberation, it was decided that DJ AM’s cameo appearance in the soon to be released "Iron Man 2," will stay in the film. The cast of the film as well as the director took a liking to the DJ during the filming, having him stay an extra week after his scene was shot. The film’s director, Jon Favreau (who also dabbles with turntables in his free time) talked about his admiration for the DJ in a recent interview.
“I was just a fan of his, just an admirer of his work, and it was supposed to be a one-day bit,” Favreau said. “But Robert [Downey Jr.] took a real shine to him, as we all did. He ended up staying with us for about a week and it was just great, we set up this turntable and between takes he would give me pointers.”
