    The Hollywood Reporter reported that Robert Downey Jr. from a series of backend deals and bonuses is going to make $50 million or even more from the movie. Downey has come a long way from being beat up in LA County jail. One day your in the toilet next day your back on top of the world.

    Can't stand the man personally but I absolutely love him in multiple films. He is one hell of an actor.

    Over 4000 days, but the point is well-taken.

    I know what you mean. He is just one of those guys that no matter what happens always seems to bounce back. Artie is kinda the same way.

    He was always super-talented. He should have won an oscar for "Chaplin". But he was equally good in "One Night Stand".

    Tom Sizemore is similarly talented but clearly too fucked up. For a while there he was set to become the next DeNiro.

    He really is Tony Stark. He deserves every cent after watching The Avengers movie.

    Scagnetti on Scagnetti FTW!!!

    Matthews: What's the matter Danny? Something you don't like?
    McKnight: No Spectre gunships, daylight instead of night, late afternoon when they're all fucked up on Khat, only part of the city Aidid can mount a serious counter-attack on short notice...
    [chuckles]
    McKnight: What's not to like?
    Harell: Life's imperfect.
    McKnight: Yeah, for you two, circling above it at five hundred feet it's imperfect. Down in the street, it's unforgiving.

    "Black Hawk Down" was a motherfuck of a great movie!

    I forgot about him in Heat...................when he picked up the kid.......................and True Romance. Classic.

    Multiple Oscar nominations/arraignments and rehab.......................it's such a fine line.
