DreamWorks has dropped this photo from Ben Stiller's upcoming comedy Tropic Thunder. The movie is about a group of pampered actors who get stuck in a real-life war while shooting an action movie in a jungle location.
The face of Ben Stiller is easily recognizable in this image. That's a blond Jack Black in sunglasses on the left. Can you name the guy in the middle?
In the movie, the middle guy's character name is Kirk Lazarus. Lazarus is a four-time Oscar winner and considered one of the greatest actors of his time. According to DreamWorks, the character is "an over-the-top, Australian-born method actor who has gone to extremes to get into character."
Of course none of that character background gives you any clues to identify this actor, I just thought I'd share.
Here's a too-obvious clue: the person in the middle is a real man of iron.
Yep, that's right. The man in the middle is Robert Downey Jr. I cannot wait to see how they explain his appearance.
