Robert Downey Jr. as Perry Mason?

Perry Mason

This is news out of left field.

Warner Bros. and Robert Downey Jr. are looking to reboot Perry Mason as a period theatrical film and the first of a potential franchise. It is expected that Downey would play the role of the famed Los Angeles defense attorney.

While we thought Tom Cruise was a stretch for Jack Reacher, at least it seemed plausible in a kind of alternate universe sort of way. We're having all kinds of trouble, however, imagining Robert Downey Jr. as Perry Mason … in any universe … though we're the first to admit that we couldn't picture him as Sherlock Holmes either, and that turned out pretty well.
