SEGA and Marvel have announced that Robert Downey Jr. and other people will be doing voice acting in its upcoming Iron Man game.
Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist who through whatever happens in the comic/film/etc ends up as some sort of mechanised hero.
Sadly the press release does not include a quote from Downey Jr. "If you're doing a drama that has some comedic elements you can't forget that it's primarily a very serious film that has some light relief," he said in quotes attributed to him by the Internet about absolutely nothing to do with this.
"The lesson is that you can still make mistakes and be forgiven," he added in another context altogether.
Other Iron Man actors involved in the game are Terence Howard (Lt. Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes) and Shaun Toub (Yinsen). The PS3/360/PS2/DS/Wii/PC/PSP game and the film both launch on 2nd May, 2008.
