Well, obviously Ledger's got an edge because of the success of TDK as well as his unfortunate death.

But there's no denying Downey k!lling this.

It's a corny Ben Stiller Movie...

Not hard to steal the show really... Especially when you are as good of an actor as RDJ is... Still, this movie is a joke... So please don't compare it, or Jr.'s performance to anything having to do with "The Dark Knight".

lol, this place is filled with simple minded idiots. No where did I compare Tropic Thunder to TDK. I was simply saying RDJ is going to give Ledger a run for his money for outstanding performance this year. Do you not understand that? Its simply involving the characters. The fact that RDJ is going to play a black man (Something controversial and difficult to accomplish) in a movie with comedy kings shouldn't go unnoticed.

I love it how everyone is on Ledger's sack now but I'm sure everyone was afraid to admire him because of his brokeback mountain flick. The funnier thing was the outrage once he was casted as the joker.

your one of the dumbest people alive.

hes not playing a black man hes playing a white guy who gets a surgey to make him look black get it right. The movie is gonna be garbage wont even come close to step brothers or pineapple express.

What is your reasoning for comparing to heath ledger at all. Hes gonna steal the show in a wack movie so your comparing that to heath ledger's all time perfomance? are u fu*king retarded.

I was lucky enough to see Tropic Thunder about 6 months ago to a year ago.
I can tell you Downey rocks it hard.
He has a line in there i thought was hilarious about him being a farmer. Trust me this movie is A+ material, even the beggining sets it up perfect. He as a black man is probably the funniest thing i've seen in a while.
This isn't just another comedy, Tropic Thunder is amazing, don't trust me.. go see it yourself when it comes out. 8.9/10

I haven't seen Step Brothers but i know it will be funny, BUT it's just not a good all around comedy for everybody, it's another Anchorman comedy. Trust me Anchorman is in my top10, but a will ferrel movie can't compare to Tropic Thunder, it's an all around good comedy movie, not just 90 minutes of will ferrel jokes.

Robert Downey Jr. deserves props. He was very funny. It was a very good comedy.

I have yet to see Pineapple Express, but i plan to see it when it comes out, so i will let you know how i feel about that, but don't compare movies you haven't even seen yet, i don't see how you can call someone the dumbest person alive, about a certain movie, when you haven't even seen it!

lol@some of these idiots acting like:
- The Dark Knight is the greatest film ever;
- Heath Ledger's performance is the greatest ever;
- the Dark Knight &/or Heath Ledger is something/someone they have cherished for so long that comparing them to something/someone they view as lesser justifies "outrage".

And regardless of how good a performance Robert Downey Jr delivers, he'll struggle to get the same recognition, be it in similar plaudits or award nominations, because comedies are still viewed as comparatively unimportant.

Oh and there is a sort of opening scene you could say with Robert Downey Jr and tobey mcguire (spider-man). i wish the movie was out so you guys would know how funny it was.

Hilarious.

I caught an early screening as well. RDJ is the sh*t in this movie. His lines alone are worth the price of admission....

that being said, can't really compare his humor to Ledger in TDK. two different roles.

not really, actually. Its just a comparison between two great actors stealing the show.

You're basically asking:

Who should be considered for best supporting actor? One of the answers is Ledger, obviously. But people shouldn't feel offended if you include RDJ to the list.


BTW, didn't robert downey jr. take matters into his own hands in terms of writing his own part?
