In 1987, he played Julian Wells, a drug-addicted wealthy boy whose life quickly spirals out of his control, in the film adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis book Less Than Zero. His feat was widely praised, though Downey has said that for him “the role was like the ghost of Christmas Future” since his drug habit resulted in his becoming an “amplification of the character” in real life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apart from his tumultuous personal life; he has shown his caliber as a great actor in playing variety of roles such as the title character in the film Iron Man or  as Australian method actor Kirk Lazarus in  action comedy film Tropic Thunder(2008). He stole the show from Ben Stiller and Jack black in Tropic Thunder, both of whom are seasoned comedy actors. He has recently earned a huge fan following of youngsters,thanks to his films like Iron man, The Avengers, and Sherlock Holmes.He is set to return as Tony Stark  and will do so again in Iron Man 3, set to release in  this year. Looking forward to Iron Man 3,we wish him success and well-being!

    My favourite is Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. And I am a huge Robert Downey Jr fan 🙂

  2. To name a favorite RDJ movie would be like naming your favorite child. There’s too many great ones, but I’d have to go with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, with Chaplin being a close second, if only for his amazing performance.
