Here’s a video I grabbed off the Paramount press site, in which Robert Downey, Jr. talks about ‘Iron Man 2,’ in theaters this Friday, May 7, 2010.
Downey has a few things to say about working with Mickey Rourke Scarlett Johansson and Don Cheadle. He looks a little tough in this video, doesn’t he? I had to double check about the Jon Favreau brother connection. I think he’s just saying they’re kinetically connected, because Favreau was the only child of two teachers, according to his IMDB page.
Downey has a really interesting history – yes, he’s had a lot of drug and alcohol problems, for which he spent time in rehab, but he also lived with Sarah Jessica Parker for seven years during the 1980s, was roommates with Kiefer Sutherland in the early 80s, and is close friends with Anthony Michael Hall, who’s also the godfather of his son, Indio Falconer Downey. Just a little trivia for you.
