I tried all sorts of people, I mean half a dozen names, world-famous names, all of whom wanted to play Chaplin … But into the CAA offices came a madman one day, with spiky black hair, rushed into the room and said, ‘My name’s Robert Downey, you may not know me but I shall be more famous that you’ve ever been, ultimately, because I shall play Chaplin. You realize I’m going to play it, do you not?’
