Ratner Wants Robert Downey Jr. As Hugh Hefner

The Hugh Hefner biopic is in the works and as Hollyscoop recently reported Robert Downey Jr might star in the film as the legendary Playboy. Hugh had given his consent for Downey to take on the role however there was no confirmation that the star had signed.

Hollyscoop caught up with the films director Brett Ratner at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards asked whether Downey would take part in the biopic. Ratner said, “I don’t know if the script comes in and he wants to do it…but were definitely interested in him starring in it…that’s for sure.”

When we asked if anyone else was cast in the film, Ratner stated “No, we want Downey… once Downey says yes.”

Do you hear that Robert, get the ball rolling everyone is waiting for you and it doesn’t look like Hugh has much time left.
