The actor who gets blockbuster hit with his superhero film 'Iron Man' is rumored to be signed by Playboy owner Hugh Hefner to portray him in his biopic.

Report from Chicago Sun-Times claimed that the 82-year-old Hefner wants Downey Jr. to play him in the biopic after he saw the actor in "Iron Man". From Downey Jr.'s side, his representative let out that the co-star of Ben Stiller and Jack Black in "Tropic Thunder" is indeed interested in the project but won't make it a done deal until the script is ready and a director has been signed.

The film is scheduled to be shot in Chicago, the city in which Hefner grew up and launched Playboy. Back in 2007, it was said that director Brett Ratner has been attached to the project, but as of the news date he is no longer involved though may still come back to tackle it. Earlier, there was a say that Leonardo DiCaprio has been considered to take on the titular character.
