Jean Grey to Star Alongside "Iron Man"?

IGN FilmForce shares with us an unsubstantiated piece of "Iron Man" casting gossip, and it’s just juicy enough to bear repeating. Word is that the mega-sexy Famke Janssen might be co-starring alongside Robert Downey Jr. in the Marvel Comics adaptation. (Also, Terrence Howard is being mentioned, too!)

From IGNFF: "Is Tony Stark falling for Jean Grey? There’s a new rumor — albeit a fairly shaky one — that "X-Men" actress Famke Janssen has been cast as Tony Stark’s love interest in the forthcoming "Iron Man" movie that will star Robert Downey, Jr. in the title role.

According to a couple of random emails sent to the website (we said it was shaky), Janssen was recently cast by "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau, with whom she has worked several times before."

Plus, I was away on Friday when the news was announced, but the Robert Downey choice? I think it’s an excellent pick!
