Mongolian gangster in "Iron Man 2" casting call

So "Iron Man 2" will be another film to contribute to the ignorance regarding Mongolia. Hollywood is on the search for a "Mongolian gangster" for the upcoming Iron Man 2 (via Dreaming of Danzan Ravjaa blog). I can foresee a future where Mongolia will slowly replace Russia, Ukraine and others as Hollywood's supervillain last resort bag. Pull an evil Mongolian out of a hat and throw him in the blockbuster blender. Knowing the producers will probably give the role to a Chinese or a Japanese actor, perhaps I should write in with my own suggestion: How about Steven Seagal? Or Danny Trejo.
