It's a pity we never see him in Japan because of Japan's harsh entry requirements-Downey's film portrayal of Sherlock Holmes was first rate!

Wasn't he arrested for drugs at one point?

And he spent time in jail for them as well.

Wow, I'd forgotten about that. I always just check "no" for "have you been arrested for any crime."

His father was a better actor, but then again, I never pay to see movies.

Wow. With his record, in any other industry except Hollywood, he would be a total washout. If you are generally charming and engaging, Hollywood is the place to be. They'll forgive you for everything (except being a Republican).

Robert Downey Jr should've won an Oscar for Chaplin. Great movie. Less Than Zero is also right up there with his best performances.

Robert Downey Jr has always been an excellent actor, The problem were the drugs, he entered a spiral which it took long enough to get out, Hopefully he's clean now, he has all my support
