RDJ To Play Spielberg's Harvey?

"They call me Boomer. You gonna do somethin' about it, chief?"

If you read the headline, that's really all the news there is. Variety speculates that Robert Downey, Jr. could play the man who sees an invisible rabbit in Steven Spielberg's reimagining of the Jimmy Stewart classic.

Seems like most people assumed Tom Hanks would play the lead, considering his long-time working relationship with Spielberg. But Robert Downey, Jr. strikes me as an interesting choice simply because he's not as clean cut as Hanks. If this casting holds true, then perhaps Spielberg's Harvey will be a little more edgy than the original.

None of today's retarded American's are gonna get that Harvey is an invisible rabbit. Spielberg will probably make Harvey a CG mole rat, voiced by Jonah Hill.

In my mind, RDJ can play anyone or anything, so I'll be looking forward to this.
