In a new interview with MTV, Wu-Tang MC Ghostface talks about his cameos in two upcoming Hollywood movies. After naming his debut album Iron Man and adopting his Tony Starks alias, Ghost’s obsession with the Marvel Comics superhero has become obvious. So it’s only fitting that Ghost recently shot a cameo in the upcoming movie adaptation, which stars Robert Downey Jr. in the title role and is set for a May 2008 release date. “It was a good look for the kid because Robert Downey Jr. recognized me as soon as I seen him. He was like, ‘Yo, Tony!,’” Ghost tells MTV. “For him to recognize me, I was kinda surprised by that. I didn’t know he even knew about the kid. … We called each other Tony onscreen. I’m like, ‘Tony Stark, I got your jet, I didn’t mess it up.’ He was like, ‘I got the Bentley for you, I laced it up.’ I had two girls with me, I was like, ‘That’s you [pointing toward the girls].’ I sent two birds at him. It was a wrap for that scene. He’s a cool dude and funny. Big up to Robert Downey Jr.
Ghost also shot a scene for the upcoming biopic spoof Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, a comedy starring John C. Reiley. “We had a bugged-out scene in there, with me, Jewel, Lyle Lovett, and we did a track,” he explained to MTV. “It was crazy though. … I’mma start doing a lot of [acting] in the next year. My character on the screen is incredible. Acting is nothing for me, man. It’s all an act. Rap is cool, but acting, that’s my star. When you get me in front of a camera, it’s a whole different aura.”
