If I had to give Robert Downey Jr. a Hollywood nickname it would be "enigma" because he has been a puzzling and contradictory force. By now everyone knows the story of his professional ascent (nominated for Oscars and such) and descent (arrests, a lot of booze, drugs, etc.). And while his talent has never been disputed, his personal antics have left many wondering if he would ever truly fulfill his enormous potential, or if his self-destructive tendencies would sabotage his work.
And then came Summer 2008. Iron Man was a huge hit and he's earning good reviews for his comedic, slightly controversial role in Tropic Thunder, out this week. So, in honor of RDJ's return to grace, I challenge you to a quiz!
How Well Do You Know Robert Downey Jr.?
What was the name of RDJ's character on Ally McBeal?
