PRO: Proving there is life after rehab, Downey Jr. has been on a roll with roles since kicking his substance abuse problems. Unrestricted by genre, the actor will embody a classic Marvel comic (Iron Man) and don blackface (Tropic Thunder) for two upcoming projects.
CON: Downey exemplifies Hollywood's double standard of giving talented male stars second (and fourth) chances, while being intolerant of female performers with the same problems.
