Don’t feel bad if you didn’t realize that Paul Bettany was the voice of artificial intelligence Jarvis in “Iron Man” – he didn’t know either!
Bettany said he got a call from pal Jon Favreau, who was fuzzy on details, but convinced Bettany to do a bit of voice work for his upcoming film.
“I didn’t know I was in a superhero movie,” Bettany told SuperheroHype.com. “[Favreau] rung me up and was really funny on the phone. I said, ‘Yeah, alright.’ I genuinely didn’t know. I’m really naive, but it’s the f**king truth. I really didn’t know what I was going in for because it was two hours in a recording booth. I went in and recorded with Jon Favreau, doing all the lines, recording them and went home and now I’m a f**king hero to my children. I haven’t even seen it yet. I haven’t had time because I’ve been working for 17 hours [a day].”
Bettany is currently filming “Legion” with Dennis Quaid.
