Selling two soaps at once

This is what he called it – RDJ on Letterman last night of the promotional process for a film: selling soap. He’s currently selling Sherlock soap. And so far Sherlock’s reviews have been pretty good – 75% so far on Rotten Tomatoes with most critics singling out RDJ’s chemistry with Jude Law as the strongest feature of the film. Yeah. I’ll watch it just for that too.

Cleverly however, the folks behind Iron Man 2 are capitalising on RDJ’s time in the spotlight to do a little pimping themselves too. A new Iron Man 2 trailer has just been released and It.Will.Own.You. It rips. RDJ, obviously, is at his sublime best. But Mickey Rourke looks rather formidable too. And then there’s that glimpse of Sam Rockwell. I LOVE when Sam Rockwell struts. He struts so f-cking sexy. Always worrisome how they’ll follow up a critical and commercial smash. So far, from the looks of the trailer, Favreau is doing alright. Fingers crossed.

As for his visit to Letterman, well, RDJ was charming, of course. Letterman clearly loves him. And he threw in a Tiger joke. And he talked about his addiction. And he looked hot. Please. For RDJ. Let Sherlock rule the box office.
