Hey, Olivia Munn Was Cut From Iron Man 2, Then Added Back

Olivia Munn, host of television program Attack of the Show! and Playboy covergirl, was slated to appear in upcoming Hollywood film Iron Man 2. Then she ended up on the editing room floor.

"As they started to edit they realised it was becoming darker than what they'd expected and what my scenes had allowed for," Munn told Complex magazine. "My parts were lighthearted and comedic."

It sounds like she took the news in stride: "Everyone knows who the stars are in this movie. I'm not one of them and I understand the editing process. Some things don't work out."

But when director Jon Favreau called her up to let her she'd been edited out of the picture, he also said he wanted her to be in Iron Man 2.

"Actually, they just gave me another role in the film," Munn explained. "I had to reshoot all of my scenes." So there you go. Olivia Munn will be in Iron Man 2.

Munn's IMDB page lists her role as Melina Vostokoff/Iron Maiden; however, IMDB pages are not always 100 percent correct.

    hmmm I wonder why?

    Yet another reason to watch Iron Man 2 if you ask me.

    But I like light hearted comedy. Oh well.

    I like Olivia, but you know, I thought that they would have used actual proper actors in Iron Man 2. I'll reserve my judgement until I've seen it though...
