Leslie Bibb Added to "Iron Man" Cast; First Pic Online!

If you thought getting a new "Iron Man" castmember was exciting news, just wait ’til you see the first picture of Iron Man himself, online now!

It seems the "Iron Man" production, underway now for a May 2008 release, is adding cast members left and right. Last week it was confirmed that Shaun Toub ("Crash") would indeed play evil nemesis The Mandarin (though really, a Persian-British actor playing a Chinese-English technocrat?) and now comes word that Leslie Bibb ("Talladega Nights") is also joining the cast. Bibb, known best for her cheerleader role on TV’s "Popular" a few years back, will play an as-yet unnamed "fast-talking reporter" who will doubtless cross paths with Robert Downey Jr.’s billionaire hero, Tony Stark.

The Hollywood Reporter also announces Bibb has nabbed the starring role in the "Wedding Crashers"-esque comedy "The Bachelorette Party"; she’ll also appear in the Clive Barker adaptation "Midnight Meat Train" and this Halloween’s horror flick "Trick ‘r Treat."

But on to the "Iron Man" photo.

Your first solid look at "Iron Man" himself (aside from the pic’s poster) comes courtesy of IGN Movies, and it’s a good, clear character shot of the famed suit of armor. Click here for the image!

The Jon Favreau-helmed "Iron Man" stars Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Terrence Howard, and Gwyneth Paltrow and is due in theaters May 2, 2008.
