Favreau asks for Iron Man casting help

IronMan.jpgJon Favreau is being really open with the Iron Man film, with his MySpace site he's trying to do a lot more than most films tend do on their websites. He's actually getting fans involved. Now he's asking for fans input into the character and casting of Pepper Potts, the Secretary to the big guy himself.

I've not really been an Iron Man fan, and the character name took me by surprise as it sounds quite ridiculous, but the suggestions are even more bizarre. Plumping firmly on the big breasts and good looking ladies camp, the choices include Jessica Biel, Kristen Bell, Kelly Brook and Stacey Kiebler. Interestingly the firm favourite (how many innuendos am I going for here) is Jewel Staite from Firefly and Serenity. You can see the ongoing discussion on the Iron Man forum through SuperheroHype.

I actually think she's probably the best and strongest choice out of all the suggestions. What do you think? The character is supposed to be red headed (hair dye can be used thank you) and has a crush on Stark. Does it sound too much like the relationship she had with the Captain in Serenity? I think a plainer more real woman is required for the role though.
