Jon Favreau must have hit it off with Sam Rockwell on the set of Iron Man 2, as the two will now be working together again on Cowboys and Aliens.
Sam Rockwell for Cowboys and Aliens
Sam Rockwell will join Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford in Cowboys and Aliens.
Rockwell will play a bar owner named Doc who joins in the pursuit of the aliens. Once Favreau and the writers -- Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof -- learned that Rockwell was interested in the movie, they reconceived and expanded the role, which initially called for a heavy-set man.
Just when you thought there couldn't be any more talent around this adaptation, you should know that Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are producing.
