Hugh Hefner is a superhero in his own right, so why not have Robert Downey Jr. play him in a movie?? Hugh has been in talks to get his own biopic about his life, and there’s been a lot of chatter about RDJ slipping on a smoking jacket and slipper to play him.
Hollyscoop caught up with Hef at the Iron Man 2 premiere, and we asked him about the rumor. Hugh told us it’s a “definite possibility.”
As for how he feels about Downey taking on the role of the man who created Playboy, Hefner says it’s all about the script. “We need a good screen play,” he explained.
But Hugh did admit Downey is a good choice. He said, “ I couldn’t do better than Robert.”
But when it comes to superheroes, Hef still thinks he’s got it in the bag. We asked him who he would be if he could choose one, and he told us, “I think I want to be Hugh Hefner.”
