Robert Downey Jr. is the most fun, creative actor I’ve ever worked with. he’s like having an excited puppy on the set all the time. And even if he’s just finished a scene where he’s been crying, he wipes the tears away, jumps out of wherever he was and makes a joke. He makes it fun for everybody. Kind of what you’d expect.

County Museum of Art, is quintessentially straight-faced, seemingly carved from granite, reserved and quiet.  Robert Downey Jr., on the other hand, bounces onto the stage, all whip-smart energy and volleys of words, a smile flashing every few moments.
