ROBERT TO PLAY PERRY MASON:
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!”
