Robert Downey Jr. Keeps Forgetting He Isn’t A Superhero In Real Life

by Hayley • No CommentsArticles

The charismatic actor reignited his faltering career after landing the role of billionaire playboy Tony Stark in 2008 blockbuster Iron Man.

Although movie bosses initially weren’t keen to cast the once-wild star, director Jon Favreau never had any doubts about Robert’s ability. Iron Man 2 is set to hit cinemas soon and Favreau has revealed Downey Jr. got so into his role, it was often difficult to distinguish if he was acting or not.

“Robert’s not just an actor hired to play a role,” the filmmaker explained to the British edition of GQ magazine. “In the success of his resurgence, he has become more like Tony in what he’ll wear and how big a personality he is. The line blurs. Robert is even cognisant of it. He’ll stop himself and say, ‘Is that Tony or is that me?’ ”

Favreau is thrilled the actor proved such a hit playing Stark and his superhero alter-ego Iron Man. He knew the recovering drug addict could make it again in Hollywood if he kept busy and focused on his work. The movie maker is also pleased Iron Man led to a series of other high-profile film roles for the 44-year-old.

“What you’re seeing is a culmination – not just in Iron Man but in Sherlock Holmes and Tropic Thunder. It was a fated moment when, having learnt the lessons of the past, he moved on to the world stage,” Favreau explained. “He’s at this best when fully engaged. He’s definitely in the pressure cooker but I think he sees this as an opportunity. Time off is not his friend.” [SOURCE]

Robert Downey Jr Talks Due Date

by Hayley • No CommentsArticles

Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr. seem like an odd pairing for a movie, which is precisely why director Todd Phillips chose the two actors for Due Date, his follow-up to The Hangover. The movie has an expectant father (Downey Jr.) traveling cross country to see his child’s birth, in the process ending up with an unlikely travel companion (Galifianakis).

Phillips told Collider that directing is mostly “about casting,”, though the first meeting between Galifianakis and Downey Jr. didn’t go as smoothly as he would have hoped.

It was awkward because Zach always makes very off-color jokes. Thinks that everybody’s on the same page as him. I know Zach well after doing The Hangover, and Robert was a little … we were at Robert’s house in fact and Zach was 15 minutes late because he rode his bicycle there. So he comes in all sweaty and like Zach does not look like Josh Duhamel. So he walks into Robert’s house, you know, sweaty and starts making some off-color remark that was a personal affront to Robert. I don’t want to get into what it was, and it just started off on the wrong foot. But that’s what the movie’s about. It’s about this left-footed relationship, so in one way it worked really well.
