Gaaaaah...

So. I need to get not!Harmony alone for the next part of my plot to work. I have a mechanism--she's got an audition.

However.

I'm not sure that they would want her going anywhere alone, considering the circumstances. Not!Tony has a driver who's an ex-drill sergeant and walks around armed.

Not only that, but I'm not sure that she'd want to go alone. Considering that the threat on not!Harry was "or your girlfriend's next," and they weren't shy about hurting him rather badly and, you know, shooting not!Tony in the back, I think she'd be smart to take the driver.

So, I have to figure out where she'd be alone so the bad guys can grab her. Preferably before her audition, for maximum angst value. Because that's how I roll.

From IMDB:

Actor/moviemaker Jon Favreau had a few nervous moments while he was filming Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man - because the Chaplin star was actually ripping his classic car apart in garage scenes.

In order to show film fans that Downey Jr's Tony Stark character was capable of building the Iron Man suit, the director decided to show off his machinery and mechanic skills at the beginning of the movie.

So the Swingers star brought his classic '32 Ford Lowboy Flathead Roadster to the set - and let his star tinker with it.

Favreau reveals, "They painted it for the movie... and they said, 'Do you mind if we re-do the upholstery?' and I said, 'No, go ahead, whatever's good for the movie.'

"I wanted to show Robert working on an old car... and then Robert, being the method actor that he is..., was like, 'I should be ripping the head off the engine block.'

"Sure enough, he busted out the wrenches and just ripped the engine apart and I was just cringing in the corner."

Favreau recalls his crew looking at him as if Downey Jr. was having "a go at my wife."


I swear, men and their cars...

So, we just went and saw "An American Carol."

And seriously, Michael Moore getting smacked around by General Patton never gets old.

Also, Zachary Levi ("Chuck") has a cameo in it, and my love for him just doubled. Kevin Sorbo was in it too, which was another pleasant surprise. I'm kind of surprised that Adam Baldwin was missing from it, honestly.

DVD collection. Fer serious.
