Fans of the late Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein will be in for a special treat May 7 when Iron Man 2 hits theaters.

Just two months before his death by accidental drug overdose, DJ AM filmed a cameo for the highly-anticipated sequel, reports the Los Angeles Times. And, distraught by his death, director Jon Favreau grappled with whether or not to include the bittersweet scene.

"We tried to make it respectful, and for people who know him, they'll get a kick out of it, and for people who don't, it will sort of slide by without much notice," Favreau said, explaining many of the powerhouse deejay's friends encouraged him to keep the brief part.


In the scene, Tony Stark, – played by Robert Downey Jr. – throws his own birthday bash at his oceanfront Malibu mansion. With DJ AM spinning the tunes, a drunken Stark shows off his smooth moves to rapper Tupac Shakur's hit "California Love." Soon after, the wild party turns into a fight scene, and Stark says, "Adam, I need a fat beat."

Vince Vaughn, let your pal John Favreau be the first one to welcome you to the "day shift."

Favreau, who has been married with children for a number of years, talked to PEOPLE about his friend and costar's recent engagement at the L.A. premiere of (fittingly) I Love You, Man, and what that means for Vaughn's lifestyle.

"Vince has been single for a number of years and we've been on different schedules," Favreau said. "He was sort of on the night shift; I was on the day shift, living on opposite ends of town."

And, he admits, as he settled down, "town" got smaller. "My trick really so far has been to work in town. I won't work on movies that as a director take me out of town. I like to be in California so I can be involved with my kids' school life, their personal life and be a dad and a husband," he said. "And that helps balance out the crazy hours and bigger than life career that I'm lucky to have."
