robert downey jr., who got a bit of a career boost with ‘a scanner darkly’ and a huge bump with the new ‘iron man,’ will play tony stark 2 more times within the next 2 years. in about 4 weeks time, he will turn up in the incredible hulk and in 2010, he will turn up in ‘iron man 2.’ he recently gave a misty-eyed speech at a time mgazine gala.

21st century hollywood is having an identity crisis. first there was angelina jolie donning blackface for ‘a mighty heart,’ then there was that actor fred armisen from SNL who on two ocassions has applied blackface to play barack obama. that he’s done it twice proves loren michael, the producer of saturday night live didn’t let it happen as a kind of accident. now there’s robert downey, jr.. there are loads of african-american actors who cannot find jobs in hollywood. are you telling me that the producers couldn’t locate one for this particular film either???
