Robert Downey Jr., is an emotional chameleon, if he does say so himself — and he does in this clip from The Tonight Show.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star stopped by the show and proved his acting chops in a round of “Emotional Interview.” In the challenge, the two actors have a conversation while shifting from one emotional extreme to another at the sound of a bell. Fallon and Downey show off their inner “annoyingly philosophical” guys before perfectly becoming two A-list stars desperately fishing for compliments. Then Downey smoothly segues into a man who really, really smells bacon and likes it.
It’s the perfect combination of Inside the Actors Studio and The Manchurian Candidate with some big laughs along the way.
