"One Must Never Deny It, But After You Try It, You Vary the Diet"

I thought that casting Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man was brilliant...

...I mean an actor with a history of substance abuse playing a superhero with a history of alcohol abuse? Genius!...

...but this? This takes it to the next level!

Robert Downey, Jr. loved to ride the white horse back in the day, and Holmes loved his seven percent solution. It's a match made in cinematic heaven.


Hey, Basil Rathbone! Put Downey's abs in your pipe and suck on 'em! 

God knows I want to.

Last week, I re-watched CHAPLIN, and I'm convinced that this guy can play any part he wants.

Even though Robert had a problem with substance abuse, he is one versatile actor who goes deep into his subjects he plays and that's what makes him great. Two thumbs up for him!
