Parting Shot: Ben Kingsley Looks Straight Up Pimp As The Mandarin In New ‘Iron Man 3′ Poster
We don't know much yet about the story behind Ben Kingsley's Mandarin in Iron Man 3. But based on the newly released poster for the film -- featuring the Mandarin rocking shades indoors, army fatigue pants, and what I sincerely hope is a pair of Timberlands -- we know this much: if being a supervillain doesn't work out for him, he definitely has a promising future starring in Wu-Tang videos. I suggest Ghostface, just to keep the theme going.
I think it's a testament to his ability as an actor that Kingsley -- the man who once brilliantly portrayed Mohandas Gandhi -- can take a picture like this and not only manage to not look stupid, but genuinely look kind of cool. Also, I want that chair he's sitting on.
