Robert Downey Jr. Is Happy About The Soloist’s Delay

Seems like the press tour for The Soloist must be going pretty well for Robert Downey Jr.! After having to get huffy with a reporter who asked him if Jamie Foxx went "full retard" on the set, he chilled out considerably in this interview with Newsday's John Anderson. When asked about the film's delay, RDJ expressed his pleasure that he didn't have to campaign for the film last fall with this delightful bon mot: "I wouldn't have been able to work it with all the zeal of the highly professional whore that I am."
