Robert Downey Jr. Will Play 'Doctor Dolittle' in New Movie!

Robert Downey Jr. will be playing the title role in the upcoming movie The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.

The film will be based on the 1920s children’s books about a doctor who claims he can communicate with the animals he lives with and treats.
