Re: Is Robert Downey Jr. a good choice?
He not only IS older than crap, he LOOKS every day of his age thanks to hard livin'. Not much sequel potential with a guy this old, and he also has never come off as a suave, debonair dude. Nope, this is 12 kinds of bad. They needed a handsome fella in his early 30s or thereabouts, a guy who oozes charisma. Downey has zero of those traits - apparently he was chosen simply because he has a history of substance abuse. Terrible choice.
