Robert Downey Jr. Looks To The Future With Debut CD

Published: 2004-11-29
Robert Downey Jr., yes that Robert Downey Jr., has released his debut album through Sony Classical. The Oscar nominated and Emmy winning actor's first effort entitled 'The Futurist,' contains eight original pop ballads as well as a cover of a classic Yes song and another cover of Charlie Chaplin's 'Smile.' Downey also plays piano on a number of the songs. He joins a growing number of actors turned recording artists, many of whom have enjoyed less-than-stellar success in the crossover. Remember Eddie Murphy's album? Don Johnson's meteoric rise up the charts? David Hasselhoff's pop stylings? Ok unless you're from Germany I know you're lying about that last one. The actor with the scandal-marred past will be appearing on the talk show Ellen on November 30th, and will play the Tonight Show December 2nd.
