Robert Downey Jr. on Jimmy Kimmel

Robert Downey Jr. on Jimmy Kimmel. They're going on and on about the newfangled video games and how tough they are.

Kimmel: "...but you gotta watch out, because instead of you controlling it, it controls you, and you don't want that--"

Downey: "Hey, been there."

Kimmel: "...It's bad."

I love how Downey, in three words, sums up his entire addiction, but they're talking about video games. Downey, totally deadpan, "hey, been there" and shrugs all nonchalant, and the audience fucking cracks up. Because Downey's always been god. I've loved him for as long as I've also been a Depp fan, what, 15-20 years now? Brilliant actor but he just crackles with life onscreen. Love that. Depp can be bleak and dark and it can falter, but Downey's almost always watchable.

I totally want to see Iron Man again. Sorry, left my thinking cap home on that one and you're not getting a smart-Steff review. Great fuckin' flick. Period. Had fun. Must do it again.
