William Sadler in Iron Man 3?

At this point, it should be a no-brainer that Latino Review may have a spy or two on the Wilmington, North Carolina set of Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, because they’re now reporting that actor William Sadler has joined the cast in an undisclosed role, having spotted him during a costume fitting with Guy Pearce.

Sadler is an over-30-year veteran character actor who has appeared in many great movies including Frank Darabont’s movies The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist, as well as Die Hard 2. Recently, he’s appeared on the CBS show “Hawaii Five-O” and in the HBO mini-series “The Pacific,” but he’s a busy actor who turns up in a wide array of projects.

We can probably make a lot of wild guesses who he might be playing–possibly someone who has a connection to Pearce’s Aldrich Killian?–but it may be a smaller role than the previously announced casting of James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton as  Coldblood-7 and Firepower or Sir Ben Kingsley in the unnamed main villain role. We can’t imagine Sadler is playing a fourth baddie, but who knows?

Iron Man 3 is scheduled for May 3, 2013, and maybe we’ll have a few more answers before then…
