Hollywood is a well-known home of eye-popping stunts that send characters flying through windshields, ducking from hails of rapid gunfire and dodging grandiose explosions. Unfortunately, not all of these stunts are planned or even on set.
Yes, our prized actors and actresses of the big and small screens have been subject to on-set and off-set incidents recently, raising the question "Is Hollywood a safe place to work?" See if you can guess who in Hollywood should invest in a personal stuntman and relax in the trailer, rehearsing those dramatic pauses and one-liners.
Given the world-wide success of the first two installments of Iron Man, plus the well-received Avengers film, there is undoubtedly a line already forming outside of countless theaters for Robert Downey Jr.'s return in Iron Man 3. Unfortunately someone may want to hand out memos to these over-achievers. That May 3, 2013 release date will most likely be pushed back a month or so. Downey Jr. has suffered a project-staller of an injury by either breaking or spraining his ankle.
Of course, the irony lies in his playing one of the biggest super heroes of all time. Downey Jr. won't be able to walk for four to five weeks, let alone live down the jokes that are sure to come. Not sure about you, but if there is a chance my Iron Man could be limping around the city while attempting to save mankind, I would much rather notice a stuntman change.
