Robert Downey Jr., currently filming “The Avengers,” where he reprises his role of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, comes in at No. 3 on Nerdage’s list of actors with geek appeal.
Downey has starred as Stark in two “Iron Man” films, and made a cameo in “The Incredible Hulk.” After “Avengers,” he’ll star in “Iron Man 3,” set to be directed by Shane Black.
Also of interest to Nerdage fans, Downey is set to play Sherlock Holmes for a second time in the film “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” set for release on Dec. 16.
In 2010, in addition to “Iron Man 2,” Downey starred in the comedy “Due Date,” with Zack Galifianakis.
