RDJ's high standards

Robert Downey Jr is both the best and worst actor to work with, according to award-winning make-up and hair designer Christine Blundell.

Christine worked with the star on Guy Ritchie's action comedy Sherlock Holmes, for which a sequel is already in the pipeline - and out of all the Hollywood A-listers she has worked with she revealed to children's charity Filmclub he is her favourite, although he has high standards.

Christine said: "Robert Downey Jr - he is absolutely the best, and the worst but I certainly don't think in a 'bad' way... he just expects you to be on it - on your game."

"I put that down to what he has been through in his life, and he's disciplined - he's professional, and he will expect you to be as well. It's the same with me, as I barely get to have a glass of wine when I'm doing a film - you're up bright and early; smelling nice and ready to go," she said.

"He's been through it all, and I think that comes through in his acting. He's very committed and very, very professional. He's very versatile."

Oscar and Bafta winner Christine has worked on British films The Boat That Rocked, Happy Go Lucky, Eastern Promises, Casino Royale, The Constant Gardener, Closer, Vera Drake, Secrets And Lies and The Full Monty.

She has also worked on Finding Neverland with Johnny Depp.

She revealed: "Johnny is an absolutely charming man, he really is a ... lovely bloke. He's great and of course very handsome, and very casual with it. It's all about his family with Johnny, and he's very choosy about what he does, he chooses things for the right reason - he enjoys playing oddball characters."

Comic-Con 2010: Various Photos

Comic-Con 2010: The Avengers cast (video+article)



In a surprise move, the cast of Avengers made their debut in person at the end of Marvel Studios film panel in Hall H at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

A teaser clip was shown, consisting of Colonial Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) speaking about a super team while the Avengers logo slowly takes form.

The crowd went wild as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige welcomed Jackson on stage to introduce the first half of the Avengers cast that had already been announced: Clark Gregg (S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), the latter of whom took over the mic.

“Did anyone see Inception?” asked Downey, who jokingly proceeded to describe it as one of the most ambitious film projects out there until considering Marvel’s efforts to produce a movie with all their most popular super-heroes.

Downey then announced new cast members Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk) and fan favorite director Joss Whedon to the stage. Downey made it a point to say he wholeheartedly approved of Ruffalo’s casting.

“If I may, just very briefly say: I have had a dream all my life. And, it was not this good,” Whedon said. “I want to thank Kevin [Feige] so much for bringing me on for trusting me and for assembling my dream team. This cast is more than I could ever have dreamed of working with.”

“And I am going to blow it. I’m not up to it. I’m very nervous. I need your love,” he said jokingly, to even more thunderous applause.

Thanks to: Geeks of doom

Rob.... would you play Hugh Hefner in a movie?

The 84-year-old's eventful life is to be the subject of a new movie by Red Dragon's Brett Ratner and producer Brian Grazer.

The movie is still in development but Hefner confirmed it will definitely be happening and then revealed who he wants to play him in the new film.

He told Movie Web: "It's taken a long time to get the right director and the right screenplay but it's happening."

Asked who he wants for the lead role, he said: "Probably Robert Downey Jr. Well, he's a very talented actor."
