Robert Downey Jr. will think about winding down his film career if his new detective movie Sherlock Holmes flops.
However, he admitted that he will do a Jay-Z by proclaiming his retirement and then returning months later with an exciting new project, reports The Daily Express.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I can only be a guy on a call sheet probably, I don''t know, maybe a couple more times. It''s something I''m so grateful to have in my palm, and yet I already see its inevitable decay.
"If Sherlock Holmes performs well, I could be busy for the next 5 or 7 or 10 years. But we''d like to go ahead and suggest the Jay-Z model wherein one announces his retirement, soaks in all the requisite fanfare, and then behaves like it never happened. It''s really the best of both worlds."
