Robert Downey Jr. could be the Wizard in “Wizard of Oz”

Robert Downey Jr. is one of our favorite actors. Not only does he come across as so poised in the media, but he is just a great actor overall. With the big release of “Iron Man 2” coming up soon, you can bet that he is going to be Hollywood’s hottest commodity in the coming months. While he is already eyeing a “Sherlock Holmes” sequel, his next role looks like it might be a part out of an old classic story.

Production Weekly posted to their twitter account earlier today the following tweet:

“Sam Mendes is the front runner to direct “Oz The Great And Powerful” by Mitchell Kapner, with Robert Downey, Jr. circling to play the Wizard”

We’re not quite sure how he is going to find time to do this, but we think he could be a great wizard.

    I think he would too, but I’d rather see him throughout the entire movie in one of the main parts
