Actor Robert Downey Jr. has made roughly $435 Million from playing Marvel’s “Ironman”

Actor Robert Downey Jr. has made roughly $435 Million from playing Marvel’s “Ironman”.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Wednesday released a video with the "Iron Man" actor encouraging applicants from diverse backgrounds to join the department's "clean energy corps" and take on jobs aimed at accelerating the deployment of clean energy such as wind and solar power.

Participants will help build thousands of miles of electric transmission lines to carry wind and solar power and take on other jobs to research, develop and deploy ways to produce energy while cutting planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, Granholm said. The new job corps is part of $62 billion awarded to the Energy Department under the bipartisan infrastructure law signed last year by President Joe Biden.

In the animated video, Downey says viewers may know him from one of his "many day jobs" as a billionaire superhero in "Iron Man" or "world's greatest detective," Sherlock Holmes.

"But now I've got this sweet new office over the Department of Energy, and I've already been putting in some crazy hours helping out the Clean Energy Corps,'' Downey says. "I've been working with some amazing people on fantastic new solutions" to climate change.

Granholm, who also appears in the video, tells Downey the Energy Department is "looking for folks to help us with pretty much everything,'' from scientists to IT specialists, civil engineers, electrical engineers and more.

"My gosh, we mean everybody!" exclaims Downey, holding a coffee cup declaring him the "world's best DOE intern.''

Robert Downey Jr.’s career stretches over nearly 50 years with over 90 movie and television credits. His most successful films include Chaplin, Sherlock Holmes, Tropic Thunder, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. He also co-starred in the popular show Alley McBeal for a couple of seasons and released a studio album called The Futurist.

However, his greatest success has come from being an integral part of the Marvel Universe in the role of Iron Man. This role was responsible for Downey being named by Forbes as Hollywood’s single highest-paid actor from 2013 to 2015 and has boosted his net worth to 300 million dollars. He also helped propel Marvel Studios’ unmatched success in the movie industry. But it was a long road for Downey to make it to this height of success, so let’s go back to the start of his acting career.

In 1987, Downey played a drug addict in the film Less Than Zero. It wasn’t long before art began imitating life as Downey delved deeper into drug addiction and alcohol abuse. He no longer was restricting his addictive behaviors to nights and weekends, and it became harder to control.

In 1991, his girlfriend of seven years, Sarah Jessica Parker, broke up with him because of his drug problem. Still, he continued on acting and was even nominated for a best actor Academy Award for the 1992 film Chaplin. Downey tried to turn things around when he got married to Deborah Falconer in 1993 and became a father to their son Indio.
