Robert Downey Jr. claims he would be happy to never be offered another acting role if he could continue making sequels to 'Iron Man' and 'Sherlock Holmes'
Robert Downey Jr. would happily only star in 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'Iron Man' movies for the rest of his career.
The actor - who plays the titular fictional detective in 'Sherlock Holmes' and inventor-turned-superhero Tony Stark in 'Iron Man' - loved his experiences on the set of both films so much, he wants to keep returning for new installments until he is forced to quit.
He said: "I'd be happy to bounce back and forth between Sherlock and Tony Stark until I'm forcibly retired.
"And fortunately, not unlike Iron Man, there is a way to continue along the lines of Sherlock and not become embarrassed by my greying hair and more ropey muscles."
Robert's 'Sherlock Holmes' co-star Jude Law also revealed he is hoping to get cast in a sequel to the detective adventure.
He added to Empire magazine: "We would love the audience to fall in love with it as much as we have so we can tell a whole bunch more."
