An encounter with 'Iron Man'

Port youth films part in Robert Downey Jr. movie


“He was nice,” Finn says of Downey. “After we were finished, he said, ‘Good job.’ And then he gave us a thumbs-up ... I’ve seen him in ‘Iron Man,’ but it was cool to see him in real life.”

His mom agreed.

“He was very nice,” Ingalls said. “He was very friendly. I mean, he’s Iron Man. So the guys were happy.”

Finn, who has been skating for a year and a half at the Newburyport skate park and harbors dreams of going professional, didn’t tell very many friends of his Hollywood interlude when he got back to school. But word of mouth soon got around, thanks to his friend and classmate Ollie Shakespeare.

“It’s pretty good. I guess I feel lucky for him, or something,” Ollie said.

“The Judge” is set to be released next year. In the movie, a successful lawyer returns to his hometown following the death of his mother, and learns that his estranged father, the town’s judge, is suspected of murder.
