With Iron Man 3 breaking box office records, nobody is happier about the film's success than actor Ashley Hamilton, who plays a small but pivotal role of former military officer Jack Taggert.
Hamilton, whose band The Wondergirls also performs the song "Let's Go All the Way" on the soundtrack with Robbie Williams, says he's "really grateful for somebody giving me an opportunity again. I just didn't have that before."
The 38-year-old son of George Hamilton has had more than his fair share of troubles when it came to drug and alcohol abuse.
