The Uber-Talented Robert Downey Jr.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008 |

RDJ is a very gifted actor. I NEVER would have pictured him doing a superhero movie, but I saw Ironman today and I have to say. Holy Schnikies! He is good at being a superhero too. IS there any role the man cannot play convicingly? Ridiculous. Whether it's serious acting for the sake of the craft like Chaplin or cheesy fluff like Soapdish and Only You he is just so .......good. He seriously must have gone through the talent line in heaven like it was an all-you-can-eat buffet.

That is all.

I totally agree as we discussed after the movie. I'm convinced he can play anything after seeing that. He made some cheesy lines actually sound funny and smart. Love him!

I agree. I haven't seen "Ironman" yet, but I think I want to (and I generally HATE comic books/superhero movies). He is just awesome. And aside from his talent, he is one of my favorite hollywood crushes. I call him "Robert Downey Gorgeous." I had a kissing dream about him once, and f.y.i., he's ALSO a good kisser.

Wow. RDJ is not a crush of mine but I'm glad someone else has dream dated a celeb. I was afraid Christian Bale and I were never gonna find a couple to double with!

Or Josh Groban and I. Since I just blogged on him. WAIT..in reality we always get to the point where we realize we should date and then I wake up. Same with Jermaine. So I guess it's going a little fast to set up celeb dream doubles already with them. We'll stick to Christian who is pretty darn amazing in many ways as a dream hubbie.

I'll take Bret... he knows it's "business time". I say "Hey Rhymenocerous.... " and he goes... " Hey Peppercorn I like your socks" Then we ride off on the back of Albi the non-racist dragon.

Also, I claimed Ron Weasley years and years ago... maybe I'm a cradle robber, not a nerd lover. And is Ron Weasley really a nerd? He is the more brawny of the Harry Potter Trio. .....

Take Ron my sista- and leave me the twins, or Bill(in the book) or oliver wood. I concede the younger weasley as long as I can have an older one.
