There are some movies that feel personal because of the relationship the writer, director or actors have to the material. 'Chef' -- written, directed and starring Jon Favreau -- doesn't just feel personal, it feels like it's ripped directly from the pages of Favreau's subconscious diary. While it's a charming enough indie film about the connection between professional and personal passions that also serves as a fascinating look inside the psychology of a major Hollywood director.

Robert Downey Jr. and Mel Gibson first worked together twenty-four years ago in the 1990 film 'Air America' and have maintained a friendship ever since. Which may be why there's a rumor that Downey Jr. is trying to pull strings and get both Gibson and Jodie Foster into the Marvel universe, and possibly into 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron.'

Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader will appear together in 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron,' but way back in 1987, the two actors starred together in a much different film: 'Less Than Zero,' based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, in which a college student returns home to L.A. for the holidays to spend time with his ex-girlfriend and his junkie best friend. 26 years later, and with a reunion of sorts on the way, we thought now would be a good time to take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

When it comes to comic book movie castings, this sort of outrage is nothing new. Just about every announcement comes with some sort of protest, as comic book fans have their own preconceived notions of what the big screen version of their favorite hero or villain should look and sound like.

Mark Wahlberg Wants to Take Over Iron Man for Robert Downey, Jr.

Anyone who has been following superhero movies knows that Robert Downey, Jr. has signed on to return as Tony Stark in 'The Avengers 2' and 'The Avengers 3,' but his future as Iron Man beyond that is up in the air. It's unlikely that Downey (who will be 53 when the third 'Avengers' film hits) will occupy the role forever, and Marvel hasn't been shy about recasting the character should the need ever arise.
And that brings us to the weird news bit of the day: Mark Wahlberg wants to takeover the part.

The last time we heard from the latest adaptation of 'Pinocchio,' Robert Downey Jr. was attached to star as Geppetto, Tim Burton was attached to direct and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' writer Jane Goldman was rewriting Bryan Fuller's script. In the months since that development, it looks like another big decision has been made in the film's development. For one thing, Burton is out and Ben Stiller is in. Secondly, in addition to taking on the role of the Pinocchio's creator/father, Downey Jr. may also play the living puppet himself.
