Guy Pearce talks ‘Iron Man 3,’ playing Aldrich Killian and a cameo on Aussie’s ‘Neighbours’

From Prometheus to Lawless, Guy Pearce is building a growing resume of onscreen baddies and this summer’s blockbuster will feature the Memento star again in Iron Man 3.

Guy Pearce Iron Man 3 posterTalking with Entertainment Fix Pearce explains why the role was appealing.

“It was fun to play a character with an ulterior motive, or a character who has a serious agenda,” he said, “He’s very suave and charming. He has these wonderful ideas about technology and taking over the world.”

“It’s always fascinating.”

The LA Confidential star plays an arch-enemy of Iron Man/Tony Stark, Aldrich Killian, a geneticist who works alongside Rebecca Hall’s character Maya Hansen to harness the power of nanotechnology and take down Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).

Pearce praised the chemistry of the first two films and contrasted them with the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy saying they are “solid and entertaining.”

After discussing the costuming on the film, his Paul Smith suits, Pearce did confess he’d consider reuniting with Jason Donovan for a possible cameo in Neighbours.

“I’m friends with Annie Jones, Fiona Corke and Jason Donovan” he said. “I see Jason a lot when I’m in London. There’s a bunch of us that see each other”.

He also revealed he’d consider appearing on Neighbours as a cameo, “I’d probably be tempted. It’d be a funny thing to do” he said. “I actually sat in the coffee shop years later as an extra with a beanie on in the background. I went to see everyone on set and they said to get in the coffee shop while they shot the scene — but I don’t think there’s any reference to it.”

Iron Man 3 comes to theaters May 3, 2013.
