Some movies that will never be made still play out in my head from time to time. It's a little crazy or senile of me but I'm the only one who's ever had the opportunity to see Robert Downey Jr. star as Bernie Lomax in Weekend at Bernie's 3. That is, until now. Check out the resemblance below and then I'll explain myself further.
Robert Downey Jr. has the amazing acting talent and training to allow him to play this part. He was silent film legend Charlie Chaplin in Chaplin and has been more comedic (and successfully so) in recent years. How ballsy would it be for him, as high profile as he is, to play a lead role with absolutely no lines of dialogue? Then top it off with Zach Galifianakis (they didn't get a fair shot together with 'Due Date') and Johnny Depp as Larry and Richie.
But wait, in my dream cast Galifianakis isn't playing the funny man as expected but rather the straight man. Depp plays the funny man similar to how he played Ed Wood and totally throws everyone off. You'd never know which of the three to expect a laugh from. I guarantee it would be the top selling comedy of all time. Hopefully one day our site will be large enough to start a trend and get this movie made. You can help by sharing this article in every way possible.
