Actor Shido Nakamura subs for Robert Downey Jr. in japanese ad for "Iron Man 2"

by Chris MaGee

If you had to find a Japanese celebrity look-a-like of Robert Downey Jr. who would you pick? I'll tell you who the folks at Paramount picked. In a new Japanese TV commercial for "Iron Man 2" Paramount has enlisted kabuki actor and star of "Red Cliff" and "Neighbor No. 13", Shido Nakamura to act as their Japanese Iron Man. The commercial is short to begin with, only 14-seconds, and it mostly consists of fans wearing Iron Man masks and clips of the movie, but there's Nakamura at the end with an energetic "Oi yoroshiku!!!"

Take a look at the ad by visiting Japan Probe here.
