Robert Downey Jr Rescues Extra on "Iron Man 2" Set

Posted: June 29th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Robert Downey Jr Rescues Extra on "Iron Man 2" SetSubmit Comment
According to IrelandOnline, an extra on the set of the "Iron Man" sequel was injured during the filming of the movie, only to be saved by the star of the film, Robert Downey Jr. To explain what happened, we must talk about the scene, which could be considered a spoiler.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

The extra was involved in a sequence which saw a group of people running away from a group of robotic villains. The man was accidentally hit by a stuntman in an iron costume, but filming continued because no one noticed he was in pain.

"Cameras kept cranking until Robert [Downey Jr], who wasn't in the scene, suddenly noticed one extra twisting in pain and moaning 'Help, I've broken something'," revealed a witness. "Robert charged into a live scene yelling, Cut! Cut! The extra was writhing on the ground in agony after a rampaging evil robot smashed him flat."

Downey called for paramedics and comforted the man until they arrived. The injured extra was taken to hospital, where he was diagnosed with a broken hip.

Sounds like an Extra is in for a free ticket to Iron Man 2.

He did it with the suit on, right? And held up a beam that was falling on him...oh. I just read the article. That's crap.

How about: 'Robert Downey Jr. tries to save the Production Company from a law suit!'?

Seems like every Superhero film needs this kind of P.R. Batman Begins there was Christian Bale stopping the loose car from hitting an extra, Affleck saved the key grip from an explosion on Daredevil set, Tobey Maguire catching a falling lamp "saving" Sam Raimi, now this... except this wasn't really a rescue.

So I guess this means he really IS a hero. Lol! That little spoiler has me more interested in the movie now though.

An Extra broke a hip during the shooting. Who was the Extra... Wilford Brimley?!

PUBLICITY STUNT

I don't the actual act was a publicity stunt, but releasing the details of the event was.

It's not like RDJ was sitting aroung going, "Hmm how can I make people want to watch this any more...oh look a dude hurt"

Robert Downey Jr is awesome though.

I seriously hope he was wearing the suit when he saved the guy, that would have been f*ckin sweet.

if he stopped the stuntman from hitting the extra then he's rescuing him. here he's just helping him.
ACTIONFIGURE writes:
on June 30th, 2009 at 11:30:00 AM

Not quite a recuse but still he help out and took care of the guy...Oh by the way, anyone would be on the ground in agony after getting smashed by an evil robot...that's why it called an EVIL robot!!
Ranger writes:
on June 30th, 2009 at 12:13:16 PM

What's next for our 'Hero' Downey Jr?! He covers his mouth when he sneezes, therefore saves the world from a pandemic?! This article is stretching the definition of 'Hero'... just a bit.

Rescuing? More like professional.

bluemeenie writes:
on June 30th, 2009 at 12:37:36 PM

lol@ACTIONFIGURE - Good point...didn't the extra know he was "EVIL?"- he shoulda thought- "ok-coming against a smashing evil robot...better not shoot from the hip on this one..."
Ranger writes:
on June 30th, 2009 at 12:43:15 PM

Thx. BM.
ACTIONFIGURE writes:
on June 30th, 2009 at 1:38:39 PM

bluemeenie-It wasn't an accident...The extra was poking the evil robot with a stick before the take. He shoulda known better...In the boy scout handbook, taunting evil robots will result in trampling.

Maybe AF - but it also states that if one does so and survives... you still get the badge.

That's not a rescue- its called "tenderly nursing"...
PrevalentMind writes:
on June 30th, 2009 at 2:22:31 PM

Downey called for paramedics and comforted the man until they arrived- lightly stroking the strands of sweaty, dishelled hair off the man's forehead, stoping every so often to whisper the words "I want you inside me!". The injured extra was taken to hospital, where he was diagnosed with a broken hip and a case of the gay.

bluemeenie, that's pretty much the premise for Tropic Thunder

RDJ was even in that.

Doesn't exactly sound like a rescue, but it's nice to see good P.R for Robert Downey Jr, since he's had a bad rap the better part of the decade.
