Re: Is Robert Downey Jr. a good choice?
I am on record saying I thought casting Chiklis as Thing was inspired casting. I believe this is along those same inspired lines.
I come at it from a different perspective, as I was reading the character before he was a recovering, troubled whatever he's become. Basically before he was, I admit, a multidimensional character. I was of a shallower time period that just thought the suit was cool and liked him for that.
I really think however this has the potential to be really good. Downey's never been my favorite but he adds depth to it for me now. I never saw Tom Cruise in that role. I just didn't see it.
