David Carr of the New York Times profiles Robert Downey, Jr. who takes the lead in "Iron Man" set for release on May 2nd.  "When Robert was cast in ‘Iron Man,’ it was as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

I knew that Robert’s performance would elevate the movie,” says director Jon Favreau.
