"I've always felt like an outsider in this industry. Because I'm so insane I guess." - Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Downey Jr.'s life isn't a movie - but it could be. Robert Downey Jr. now commands $25 million for every film he makes - not bad for someone who ten years ago was in prison, addicted to heroin and cocaine and one bad choice away from death. His 2009 film The Soloist was eagerly anticipated and hotly tipped for numerous critics' awards, while Christmas smash Sherlock Holmes has already grossed $388 million since its release on Boxing Day. Earlier this month Robert Downey, Jr. received a Golden Globe (Best Comedy Actor) for his portrayal of Holmes. His summer blockbuster Iron Man 2 is expected to be one of the biggest films of the year, likely to break all box office records. His story is without doubt Hollywood's greatest ever comeback. The Comeback Kid is an insightful, devastating, scathing and ultimately uplifting journey into the realms of Hollywood's darkest excesses and successes, lifting the lid on the psyche of one of the industry's most gifted actors.
