DOWNEY JR. INTIMIDATED BY PITT IN RITCHIE ROLE

by Hayley • No CommentsGeneral News

ROBERT DOWNEY JR. was terrified about stepping into SHERLOCK HOLMES’ shoes for GUY RITCHIE’s new movie – because he was convinced he could never top BRAD PITT’s performance in the director’s SNATCH film.
The Iron Man actor steps back into Victorian London to play the supersleuth in Ritchie’s new adaptation, but he had doubts over whether he was “cool” enough to be one of the filmmaker’s leading men.
He explains, “It’s was a little bit daunting. You know the type of guys that have been in Ritchie’s movies and you feel like they’re this kind of tight-knit little band. And I remember seeing Brad Pitt in Snatch, and thinking that was so cool and it was so bad a**. And I thought, ‘I’m never gonna measure up.’”
But Downey Jr. insists Ritchie didn’t question his casting decision and instead focused on getting the job done.
He adds, “The truth is, Guy doesn’t think that way. He kind of approaches everything like (it’s important to) have a good atmosphere on set. (He says,) ‘What we have is this huge iconic literary character and we’re looking at storyboards for fight sequences that seem to have no end, and 75 days to do it and this is how we’re going to do it.’” [Source]

Downey turns super-sleuth in ‘Sherlock Holmes’

by Hayley • No CommentsGeneral News

Robert Downey Jr. is an actor at the top of his game — already a big-screen superhero, now an iconic super-sleuth.

He’s also surprisingly open about his self-doubt.

A charismatic performer with a sometimes troubled past, Downey struck box-office gold with 2008 hit “Iron Man,” and now plays the great Victorian detective in Guy Ritchie’s action-filled “Sherlock Holmes.” He knows he’s not many people’s mental image of the angular, cerebral and very British Holmes. He hasn’t let it stop him.

“You kind of act as if you’re up to the task until you find out whether you truly are or not,” said Downey, in a reflective mood during an interview in London.

“I was fortunate that right about this time last year I was really peaking in my own confidence and faith in my abilities. And seeing as I’d been cast and contracted and it was moving forward, it wasn’t like there was any benefit to me not thinking I was the perfect guy for it.”

Audiences will soon give their verdict on Downey’s muscular, street-wise take on the sleuth of Baker Street. The film has its world premiere in London on Monday and opens in the United States on Dec. 25. Continue Reading
