Guy Pearce Joins 'IRON MAN 3'

Variety reports that Australian actor Guy Pearce (Lockout, Prometheus) is currently in final talks to play Aldrich Killian in Iron Man 3. In the comics he co-created the Extremis technology that Iron Man adopts after Killian sells it to terrorists. A likely clue to a return of the Ten Rings lead by Mandarin? Pearce is best known for a string of character driven roles in films like Memento, L.A. Confidential, The Propostion Animal Kingdom, The Hurt Locker, Count of Monte Cristo, The King's Speech and the upcoming film Lawless (Wettest County). His pedigree as an actor gives the impression he very well could end up a main villain in the film.
