In Touch (USA) - - Omg... -

And now … The Case of the Re­booted TV Trea­sure! Robert Downey Jr. is de­vel­op­ing a se­ries for HBO based on the hit court­room TV drama Perry Ma­son, which ran from 1957 to 1966. The 51-year-old ac­tor will also star as the master de­fense at­tor­ney, orig­i­nally played by Raymond Burr. “No one can play Perry Ma­son but Burr,” says one on­line com­menter, ad­ding, “No more re­boot­ing of the clas­sics.” But many echoed this opin­ion: “I loved Perry Ma­son and I love RDJ. Win-win!”
