This is one of my favorite comeback stories.

I have loved Robert Downey since his days as a member of a the Brat Pack.

Less than Zero, Chances Are, Chaplin: I still watch his early movies over and over.

I went back to watching Ally McBeal when he appeared on the scene and felt heartbroken for him when he once again lost the job to rehab.

I didn't have a bit of snark to give over all his falls off the wagon, I just wanted to see him get a handle on his problems because he really is such an amazing actor – and lo and behold!

He came back with a vengeance and pretty much immortalized himself as Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes.
