Hef Wants Robert Downey Jr. To Play Him In Biopic!

And we agree!

Though there are no solid plans in place yet for a Hugh Hefner biopic, director Brett Ratner thought it would be a good idea to get Hef's approval on someone to play him before anything else.

Hef's choice? Robert Downey Jr.

You see it, right? He's perfect!

After a meeting that included Robert, Hef and Brett, the original Playboy has been at Robert to consider to role, bringing it up wherever the two stumble into each other, like the Iron Man 2 premiere just a few weeks ago.

Brett agrees and explains that he believes that Robert would do it, if the script is strong enough.

And there is the snag as there is so much to tell of the life in Hugh Hefner that it has been difficult for the writers to lock down the story.

Still, it's in the works and we really would like to see Robert do it.

How about U?

    Well you know Robert is like one of the best actors, he will do a great job playing a sleezy man, old as bones, dying of aids.

    RDjr is not nearly sleazy enough, even Michael Douglas is not sleazy enough, and if Hefner is promoting it, it means that the movie will b e far from the truth. Johnny Depp could probably do it justice, but only if it is an independent production that has nothing to with the Playboy Empire.
