Does anyone else permanently associate Robert Downey Jr with Tony Stark/Iron Man? Watch

    Whenever I see Robert Downey Jr, I always scoff and say, "He's not Robert Downey Jr - He's Iron Man!".

    For example, when I watched Due Date, I scoffed and said "Ha! That's not Robert Downey Jr, that's Iron Man!"

    It is now a permanent association. Nobody could be a better Iron Man than Downey Jr.

    Do you guys get that too?

    In short, I no longer see him as Robert Downey Jr - whenever I see him, it's Tony Stark/Iron Man that I permanently see. It is this that makes me think that the Iron Man movie franchise should continue far into the future - it cannot stop!



    ^This man's name is Tony Stark and he is Iron Man!

    I think people do this a lot and actors always have a role they were best known for. Take the actor from harry potter for example, no matter what he does he will always be known as harry potter

    Yes, that's true - but with Downey Jr, it's all the more. But I guess you're right - like Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard or something.
