Robert Downey, Jr.: Private Dick?

Jeez! You finally kick the junk after 20 years, star in one $300-million-grossing megahit, and suddenly everyone and their agent wants you.

The latest casting rumor regarding Robert Downey, Jr. puts the 43-year-old Iron Man in the lead in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. Hey, Sherlock, use your magnifying glass to find out where Madonna locked-stocked away Guy’s balls, as long as you’re there.

Downey’s also reportedly up for a Hugh Hefner biopic, Iron Man 2 and an Avengers movie.

Watch for RDJ donning blackface in Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder this August.

Hmmm. Will the former Charles Chaplin look at all out of place on this red carpet
