Tony Stark will be played by Robert Downey, Jr.

Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

"Aint It Cool News" is reporting that the lead role of Tony Stark in the upcoming Iron Man movie will be played by none other than Robert Downy, Jr. For those uninformed of the Iron Man mythos, Tony Stark is a rich and well-respected man who develops a substance abuse problem. Hmm...

And a word of advice for this film so it doesn't go down the path of all the other comic book films. DO NOT MAKE THE WHOLE MOVIE A FREAKIN' LOVE STORY!

Atari Music

In 1982, the record label Kid Stuff started putting out records based on the most popular video games. The first three albums were for Atari's flagship games: Asteroids, Missile Command, and Yars Revenge. Each included an incredibly catchy theme song followed by a usually rather nonsensical adventure story.

WINONA Ryder is just as loopy as she's always been. The pixiesh actress, who's been palling around with her new best friend Kate Moss lately, wandered into the SoHo shop Lounge on Sunday looking "very spooked out," an eyewitness said. "She entered through the back door and seemed lost and confused, and after looking through the entire store approached a sales rep." Ryder then shrieked, "Where am I?" before "wandering back out on the street. It was so weird." A rep for the star, who was once busted for shoplifting in Beverly Hills

Beware the killer teddy bear

A stuffed Paddington Bear turned killer this month at a Fish and Game hatchery in Milford. The bear was dropped into a circular pool by a "person or persons unknown" and clogged the flow of water, killing 2,500 rainbow trout, according to a statement from hatchery supervisor Robert Fawcett."RELEASE OF ANY TEDDY BEARS into the fish hatchery water IS NOT PERMITTED,"Fawcett said in a written statement. He urged anyone who drops a teddy bear in the water to find a fish culturist to remove it. "They might save your teddy bear, and keep it from becoming a killer," he said.

Earth - View from Saturn

Click here for PIA08324 Figure 1

Not since NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft saw our home as a pale blue dot from beyond the orbit of Neptune has Earth been imaged in color from the outer solar system. Now, Cassini casts powerful eyes on our home planet, and captures Earth, a pale blue orb -- and a faint suggestion of our moon -- among the glories of the Saturn system.Earth is captured here in a natural color portrait made possible by the passing of Saturn directly in front of the sun from Cassini's point of view. At the distance of Saturn's orbit, Earth is too narrowly separated from the sun for the spacecraft to safely point its cameras and other instruments toward its birthplace without protection from the sun's glare.

Scientists Find 'Lucy' Species Skeleton

NEW YORK — Scientists have discovered a remarkably complete skeleton of a 3-year-old female from the ape-man species represented by "Lucy."The discovery should fuel a contentious debate about whether this species, which walked upright, also climbed and moved through trees easily like an ape.The remains are 3.3 million years old, making them the oldest known skeleton of such a youthful human ancestor.

Dr. Suess Unorthodox Taxidermy

Seuss embarked on an ingenious project in the early 1930s as he evolved from two-dimensional artworks to three-dimensional sculptures. What was most unusual for these mixed-media sculptures was the use of real animal parts including beaks, antlers and horns from deceased Forest Park Zoo animals where Seuss’s father was superintendent. Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy was born in a cramped New York apartment and included a menagerie of inventive creatures with names like the “Two Horned Drouberhannis,” “Andulovian Grackler,” and “Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn.”

T.M.X. Elmo

Fisher-Price, a unit of Mattel Inc., on Tuesday took the wraps off T.M.X. Elmo, ending months of unprecedented secrecy that's had the toy industry abuzz. Until the unveiling, only about 50 people had seen it. He's still red, fuzzy and really ticklish, but now Elmo's laughing fits have him slapping his knee, falling to the floor, rolling over and pounding his arm.

Shark that walks on fins is discovered

In this undated photo released by Conservation International,  an epaulette shark (Hemiscyillum freycineti), one of over fifty likely new species discovered during the recent CI-led surveys in the waters off Indonesia's Papua province, rests on the sea bottom. Calling it an underwater world full of visual wonders, scientists Monday announced the discovery of dozens of new marine species including the shark that walks on its fins in the region known as the Bird's Head Seascape.

BANGKOK, Thailand - Scientists combing through undersea fauna off Indonesia's Papua province said Monday they had discovered dozens of new species, including a shark that walks on its fins and a shrimp that looks like a praying mantis.

Brad Pitt in the next installment of "Mission Impossible." ?

Rumor has it that Parmount Pictures is looking to replace Tom Cruise with Brad Pitt for it's next installment of "Mission Impossible." In turn it would also make Brad Pitt the highest-paid actor in history. Brad Pitt's production company Plan B is based out of Paramount, so this does make some sense.

How Was "Starbucks" Named?

According to Howard Schultz's book Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time, the name of the company was derived from Moby-Dick, although not in as direct a fashion as many assume. Gordon Bowker liked the name "Pequod" (the ship in the novel), but his creative partner Terry Heckler objected: "No one's going to drink a cup of Pee-quod!" Heckler suggested "Starbo," the name of a mining camp on Mount Rainier. Combining the Moby-Dick idea with "Starbo" resulted in the company being named for the Pequod's first mate, Starbuck.
