Robert Downey Jr. account with films in his career film that it is endorsed as an actor of weight.
Born April 4, 1965 in Manhattan, New York, Robert John Downey, Jr. had a childhood complicated, due to the addition of his father to the drugs (something that will have an impact on your life years later). Despite this, he began his gait in the world of the performance at the beginning of the years 70, in the movie Pounddirected by his own dad. A decade later, already with 17 years old, Robert decided to abandon his studies and focus entirely on his career as a histrión. For 1983 received his first opportunity in Hollywoodwith the feature film Baby It’s You.
In 1992 came to him the opportunity of give life to Charles Chaplin, a feature film that catapulted him to further his career and led him to the ante-room of the Oscar. With its popularity skyrocketing, projects came into his hands by wholesale. However, at the end of the decade, his career was paused due to their problems with drugs and justice.
When it seemed that the career of Downey Jr. it was finished, came the year 2006 and with him the opportunity of give life to Tony Stark. What we never saw coming was a come back of those that tend to occur very little in The Mecca of Cinema. Even last year he came to speculate that Marvel wanted an Oscar to Robert. Thanks to the MCU, the histrión had a new opportunity in Hollywood that has been able to capitalize very well, even though Thanos has been destroyed, although one theory claims that he was an Avenger who manipulated everything.
Actor, producer, and lover of vehicles, the new yorker has collaborated with directors of the stature of Richard Attenborough, Oliver Stone, Robert Altman and James Tobackto name a few. He has won twice the Golden Globe and a BAFTAand has been nominated twice to the Oscar Award.
With all of these credentials (in addition to being one of the highest paid actors of the last few years), well worth making a journey through the career of Robert Downey Jr. and remember his best films to date.
Dir. Richard Attenborugh.
Cast: Robert Downey Jr. Geraldine Chaplin, Paul Rhys.
Grace to this film he received his first nomination for an Oscar.
The film takes us into the life and work of the great comedian. Not only that, but also delve into his controversial private life and the problems he faced. Directed by the master Attenborugh, Downey gave us that, without doubt, is the best performance of his career. He might have won all the awards that year, but was faced with an invincible Al Pacino by Perfume for women.
Tropic Thunder (2008)
Dir. Ben Stiller
Cast: Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise.
Earned him his second academy award nomination.
In 2008, this comedy surprised all and sundry. Moviegoers and critics fell prostrate before this film about a group of actors who while filming a blockbuster war, are forced to become the soldiers they interpret. He was nominated for two Golden Globes and earned him the second aspiration Oscar Downey as Best supporting Actor.
Dir. Davin Fincher.
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr.
‘Zodiac’ follows the trail of a serial killer in the San Francisco of the 70’s.
With all the style Fincher, this powerful thriller you will plunge in the story of a serial killer in the San Francisco of the 70s, to the time you go plunging into your seat. Robert gives life to Paul Avery, a man whose life changes when he becomes a target of the Zodiac. If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for?
Good night, good luck (2005)
Dir. George Clooney.
Cast: David Strathairn, George Clooney, Patricia Clarkson, Robert Downey Jr.
In ‘Good night, and good luck’ Downey Jr. it was put to the orders of George Clooney.
The tape leads us to remember the journalist Edward R. Murrow (Strathairn), who, through its radio program, seeks to defeat the dreaded senator Joseph McCarthy. In the film, Robert gives life to Joseph Wershba, a reporter for CBS who is married in secret with a co-worker (Clarkson). A film that shows the importance of the free press.
Killers by nature (1994)
Dir. Oliver Stone.
Cast: Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Tom Sizemore, Robert Downey Jr.
It is considered the best film of Oliver Stone.
Converted into a whole tape of worship (with history of the same Quentin Tarantino), Natural Born Killers it is considered the best film of the master Stone to date. Since its release caused controversy, and in it, Downey gives life to Wayne Gale, a minor character who steals virtually every scene in which it appears.
Short Cuts (1993)
Dir. Robert Altman.
Cast: Andie MacDowell, Julianne Moore, Tim Robbins, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Downey Jr.
Short Cuts is a film of the ensemble of Robert Altman.
As characterized, the maestro Altman has assembled a cast of luxury to give life to this film about a group of people who live in the suburbs of Los Angeles. This is a film as emotional, funny and terrifying at the same time. Some experts say that it is not the best work of Robert, but yes the best film in which he has participated.
Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Dir. Guy Ritchie.
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams.
Gave a refresh to the character of Arthur Conan Doyle.
Yes, yes, yes. We know that, compared to the previous films, this tape is “nothing”. However, we can not deny that only an actor as Downey, Jr. (with his charisma and talent) could give a refresh to the iconic character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Dir. Jon Favreau.
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard.
Give life to Tony Stark catapulted his career to new account.
The role of the millionaire Tony Stark it made the career of the new yorker had a well-deserved revival and launched her fame through heaven. The truth is that we do not imagine any other actor under the skin (or armour) of Iron Man and that causes the tape to be on this list. Recently, Robert Downey Jr. he stated that he would return the MCU only if you give him the salary he desired, however, Marvel already has the new avengers for Phase 4.
