Robert Downey Jr. filming “The Judge” in Massachusetts!

Believe it or not, this is a man of 48. Does he age?

Anyhoo, The Judge is about a successful lawyer who returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral only to discover that his estranged father, the town’s judge, is suspected of murder.

The film, which is set to be released next year, also stars Dax Shepard, Vera Farmiga, Leighton Meester, Billy Bob Thornton, and more.

Robert Downey Jr. wears lederhosen to the premiere of ‘Iron Man 3′!

Who doesn’t love Robert Downey Jr.?

This may be the first time I’ve ever seen anyone rocking a lederhosen on the red carpet. Robert Downey Jr., 48, was spotted last night wearing this festive outfit at the ‘Iron Man 3′ premiere in Munich, Germany, (well that explains it).

His costar Gwyneth Paltrow also appeared at the premiere, and looked much more red-carpet ready! How adorable are the two of them, seriously.

Robert Downey Jr.’s HUGE ‘Avengers’ payday!!

Robert Downey Jr. certainly knows what he’s doing, that’s pretty clear this morning. The Hollywood Reporter announced this morning that the 47-year-old actor stands to earn $50 million from ‘The Avengers’. $50 million!!!

The actor negotiated a new contract back in 2008, after the first ‘Iron Man’ movie earned $585 million at the box office. His new contract stated that he would receive a portion of Marvel’s revenue from any future film where he plays Tony Stark.

His deal alone puts him light years above his costars. Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo each earned about $2 million – $3 million for the film.

Marvel has a history of cutting sharp deals. Terrence Howard, who starred with Downey Jr. in the first “Iron Man” film, was reportedly faced with a 50 to 80 percent pay cut for the sequel after the studio learned director Jon Favreau planned to limit his role. Howard’s agents smarted, and though it’s unknown if he walked out or if Marvel decided to go a different direction, Don Cheadle replaced Howard for the sequel.

“The Avengers” continues to smash through box office records and recently surpassed the $1 billion mark in global earnings, so the $50 million payout is unlikely to put a big dent in Marvel’s balance sheet. The film is currently making “Avatar”-type money, a big relief to Disney, which bought Marvel and desperately needed a hit after the crippling loss it suffered on “John Carter.”

Good for Robert, that’s all I have to say. If a movie is going to make over $1 billion in the box office, then the actors should see some of that!
