  • ♪♪♪ >> STEPHEN: WELCOME BACK.

  • I GET TO SHARE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL WITH YOU TONIGHT --

  • A CONVERSATION WITH HOLLYWOOD ICON, ROBERT DOWNEY JR.

  • YOU MAY KNOW HIM AS IRON MAN.

  • YOU MAY KNOW HIM AS SHERLOCK HOLMES.

  • YOU MAY KNOW HIM AS CHAPLIN.

  • YOU MAY KNOW HIM AS SUPPORTING CHARACTER DEREK LUTZ FROM THE

  • 1986 FILM "BACK TO SCHOOL."

  • AND IF THAT IS WHERE YOU KNOW HIM FROM, CHECK OUT HIS OTHER

  • STUFF.

  • I THINK YOU'LL BE SURPRISED BY HIS RANGE.

  • HERE'S THE THING, WHEN R.D.J.R.

  • JOINED ME FOR MY "A LATE SHOW: SUPER BOWL SPECIAL" BACK IN

  • FEBRUARY, I HAD SUCH AN AMAZING TIME TALKING WITH HIM ABOUT

  • EVERYTHING FROM HIS SUSTAINABLE "FOOTPRINT COALITION" VENTURE

  • FUND TO THE YEARS THAT HE DISAPPEARED INTO-- AS HE PUT

  • IT-- HIS OWN "SIX-HOLE," THAT WE ONLY HAD TIME TO AIR HALF OF IT.

  • AND EVER SINCE-- MUCH LIKE THE SNYDER CUT-- FANS ONLINE HAVE

  • BEEN DEMANDING TO SEE ALL THE AMAZING STUFF LEFT OUT OF THE

  • INITIAL RELEASE.

  • I HAVE THAT RIGHT, RIGHT.

  • >> Stephen: THEY HAVE DEMANDED, RIGHT?

  • >> EVERY DAY.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • SO, HERE YOU ARE, MY EXCITING NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN INTERVIEW WITH

  • ROBERT DOWNEY JR. THE "REST OF IT" CUT.

  • ARE YOU AN ADVENTUROUS PERSON?

  • BECAUSE YOU SEEM LIKE A CREATIVELY ADVENTUROUS PERSON.

  • YOU ARE INCANDESCENT WITH YOUR ENERGY BUT DO YOU DO ADVENTUROUS

  • THINGS?

  • DO YOU MOUNTAIN CLIMB OR JUMP OUT OF PLANES OR HANG GLIDE?

  • DO YOU DO DANGEROUS ADVENTUROUS STUFF?

  • >> I HAVE DONE STUFF.

  • I'M MIDDLE-AGED NOW, SO IT'S ALL ABOUT PROTECTING THE ASSET,

  • LITERALLY.

  • >> Stephen: MM-HMM.

  • BUT, YOU KNOW, I WENT SKY DIVING AND ADVANCE FREE FALL

  • FROM 12,000 FEET.

  • I HAD TWIST IN MY LINE.

  • IT WAS NOT FUN.

  • IT WAS A REAL BUZZ WHEN I REALIZED THAT I WAS NOT GOING TO

  • HIT THE GROUND AT TERMINAL VELOCITY AND MY CHUTE OPENED.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S A HIGH.

  • YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: ONE DOES NOT -- THAT WASN'T THE FIRST TIME YOU

  • JUMPED, WAS IT?

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: NO WAY!

  • WAS IT THE LAST TIME YOU JUMPED?

  • >> YOU'RE ( BLEEP ) RIGHT.

  • >> Stephen: YOU EVER BUNGEE JUMPED?

  • >> NO!

  • I WOULD DO THAT.

  • >> Stephen: I HAVE DONE THAT, AND I WOULD NOT DO THAT.

  • >> DID YOU TOUCH THE WATER EVEN THOUGH THEY TOLD YOU YOU

  • WOULDN'T?

  • >> Stephen: NO, I DID NOT TOUCH THE WATER.

  • I DID NOT TOUCH THE WATER.

  • >> OKAY.

  • >> Stephen: I DETEST HEIGHTS, BUT THERE WAS A CAMERA POINTED

  • AT ME.

  • WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

  • NOT JUMP?

  • >> THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH CAMERAS.

  • I BET YOU AND I WOULD DO DAMN NEAR ANYTHING IF WE WERE DOING

  • A, YOU KNOW, THREE-PART MINISERIES.

  • >> Stephen: I THINK IT LOBOTOMIZES YOU.

  • >> YES.

  • THERE'S THAT PHRASE, TOO, IF YOU SEE FEAR, HEAD FOR IT.

  • BUT FOR ME, I'M 55, BROTHER.

  • >> Stephen: WHEW!

  • I'M LOOKING AT THE BACK NINE.

  • I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO MY KIDS WHY I'M IN TRACTION

  • OR WHY MAY FACE LOOKS DIFFERENT OR WHY I'M NOT AVAILABLE FOR

  • MONTHS AT A TIME BECAUSE I'M REHABBING SOMETHING I DID

  • BECAUSE I'M STUPID.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT'S THE HEADLINE I'VE EVER READ ABOUT

  • YOURSELF POST-EMERGING FROM YOUR OWN SIX-HOLE, WHAT'S THE

  • HEADLINE YOU'VE READ ABOUT YOURSELF YOU'RE, LIKE, I DON'T

  • KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN THAT HEADLINE TO MY OLD ME.

  • I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

  • I ONCE GOT INTO A BOATLE ACCIDENT WHERE I BASICALLY HIT A

  • DOCK IN A STORM AND SPLIT MY FACE OPEN RIGHT HERE AND HAD

  • STITCHES IN MY FACE.

  • I WENT ON AND DID THE SHOW AND DIDN'T EXPLAIN TO THE AUDIENCE

  • WHY THERE WERE STIMPS IN MY FACE, JUST DIDN'T MENTION IT AT

  • ALL.

  • A HEADLINE ON CNN THE NEXT MORNING SAID WHAT MAPPED TO

  • STEPHEN COLBERT'S FACE?

  • AND I WANT TO SEND THAT HEADLINE TO MYSELF BACK IN TIME JUST TO

  • SCARE THE ( BLEEP ) OUT OF ME THE PAST.

  • IS THERE A HEADLINE THAT YOU COULDN'T POSSIBLY EXPLAIN TO

  • YOUR OLD SELF?

  • >> MY GOSH...

  • UM...

  • YOU KNOW, I'VE HAD SOME PRETTY GOOD HEADLINES IN THE LAST TEN

  • YEARS, BUT I'LL GIVE YOU A COUNTERPOINT.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • I ONCE HAD A REVIEW FROM THE LOST YEARS WHERE IT CLEARLY

  • STATED THAT I LOOKED LIKE PEE-WEE HERMAN JUST COMING OUGHT

  • OF A COMA.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) AND WHEN I READ IT, I SAID, YOU

  • KNOW WHAT?

  • THAT IS APT REPORTING.

  • >> Stephen: THAT IS I CANNOT -- I'LL FACT CHECK THAT

  • AND I WILL VERIFY IT.

  • >> THE FACT THAT YOU CIRCLE BACK TO SIX-HOLE JUST MADE MY DAY.

  • NOW, LET ME BREAK THAT DOWN.

  • HERE'S WHERE THAT COMES FROM.

  • IN GREAT SABATINI, SABATINI WHAT YOUR SIX, THAT MEANS DOWN, WE'RE

  • BEHIND.

  • SO THAT'S WHERE IT IS ON THE CLOCK SO THAT'S WHY WE CALL THAT

  • THE SIX-HOLE.

  • >> Stephen: THE SIX-HOLE.

  • OKAY.

  • IS THAT ALSO LIKE A HOCKEY TERM?

  • ISN'T THERE A FIVE-HOLE IN HOCKEY?

  • >> I DON'T KNOW.

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T KNOW EITHER.

  • >> I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT SPORTS.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU NOT FOLLOW THE SPORTING THAT MUCH?

  • >> I DON'T KNOW ENOUGH.

  • I'M A BIG U.F.C. GUY, AND I KNOW THAT I LOVE THE PITTSBURGH

  • STEELERS.

  • >> Stephen: U.F.C. IS OKAY.

  • A LOT OF IT JUST BREAKS DOWN INTO SORT OF AWKWARD CUDDLING

  • AFTER A WHILE.

  • THEY LOOK LIKE THEY'RE SPOONING AFTER A WHILE BECAUSE THEY

  • CLUTCH AND FALL DOWN AND THAT'S IT.

  • I LIKE THE SWEET SCIENCE.

  • I LIKE THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED BOXING.

  • >> OKAY.

  • HERE'S WHAT I GOT.

  • YOU AND ME, NEITHER OF US LIKE HEIGHTS, SO WE'RE GOING TO GO UP

  • TO ONE OF THOSE PLACES WHERE FOLKS BASE JUMP, AND THEN WE'RE

  • GOING TO DO A LITTLE SPARRING, AND REMEMBER, IT'S ALL GOING TO

  • BE A JOKE BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO FALL, LIKE, 80 YARDS INTO A HUGE

  • NET, YOU KNOW, LIKE AT THE END OF THAT MOVIE "THE GAME."

  • >> Stephen: YEAH, SURE!

  • SO LET ME GET THIS RIGHT -- YOU AND I ARE GOING TO GO UP TO THE

  • TOP OF HALF DOME, WE'RE GOING TO BARE KNUCKLE BOX, AND THEN FALL

  • OFF OF IT 80 FEET!

  • HAVE YOU EVER FALLEN 80 FEET ROBERT DOWNEY, JR.?

  • >> I KIND OF HAVE.

  • I WAS ON A WIRE, BUT I DIDN'T REHEARSE RIGHT AND, SO, IT WAS

  • KIND OF LIKE FALLING.

  • BUT HEARST THE OTHER THING -- BUT HERE'S THE OTHER THING, BACK

  • TO THE M.M.A., YOU'RE SELLING IT SHORT.

  • IT IS IN MANY WAYS THE MOST EVOLVED SPORT BUT YOU'RE CORRECT

  • OFTEN IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE KISSING EACH OTHERS COXIC BONES.

  • IMAGINE DOING THAT IN A FREE FALL, WE'LL SHOW THEM HOW IT'S

  • DONE.

  • >> Stephen: I HAVE JUMPED OFF BRIDGES IN THE PAST FOR FUN AND

  • I AM HERE TO TELL YOU WITH NO WIRE, NO MARVEL SPECIAL EFFECTS

  • WIRE ON, YOU JUST JUMP OFF A BRIDGE.

  • WHY?

  • BECAUSE YOU'RE YOUNG AND DUMBER THAN ( BLEEP ) AND EVERYBODY

  • ELSE IN YOUR GANG DID IT AND YOU'RE HIGH AS A KITE.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> MY COUSIN DILAN, MAJISTER

  • DILAN, A LATIN TEACHER IN CONNECTICUT --

  • >> Stephen: STEPHEN SPEAKING LATIN ).

  • >> YEAH, YEAH.

  • THEY WENT TO A FAMOUS PLACE WHERE PEOPLE JUMP OFF A BRIDGE,

  • AND HIM AND HIS MISSUS AND ONE OF THE KIDS DID IT, I LOOKED AT

  • IT, MANAGEABLE JUMP, MOVING WATER, I THINK, I THOUGHT THAT

  • WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA.

  • >> IT IS A TERRIBLE IDEA!

  • ONE OF MY FRIENDS, AND WE'LL BLEEP HIS NAME BECAUSE I DON'T

  • WANT TO GET HIM IN TROUBLE OR BE EMBARRASSED, ( BLEEP ), HE HIT

  • THE WATER NOT QUITE RIGHT BECAUSE YOU WANT TO GO IN

  • NEEDLE, TOES POINT, YOU KNOW.

  • >> FISTS DOWN.

  • >> Stephen: AND TIGHT, TIGHT IN BY YOUR SIDE.

  • HE WENT IN AT A LITTLE BIT OF AN ANGLE.

  • THEY HAD TO TAKE HIM TO THE HOSPITAL TO HAVE THE CREEK WATER

  • REMOVED FROM HIS ASS.

  • HE HAD A SCHOOL OF CARP IN HIS LOWER INTESTINE WHEN THEY PULLED

  • THEM OUT.

  • HE WAS LIKE A FISH MONGER.

  • YOU REALIZED THEY STOPPED ROLLING THE CAMERA, LIKE, TEN

  • MINUTES AGO, RIGHT.

  • NONE OF THIS IS USABLE.

  • >> NO, THIS IS GREAT BECAUSE THIS IS OUR SIZZLE REAL FOR THE

  • SERIES WE'RE GOING TO DO.

  • WE'RE GOING TO GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT.

  • >> Stephen: SURE.

  • YOU AND ME, FIGHTING CRIME.

  • >> YEP.

  • IF I JUST SIT ON MY HANDS, I'M FIGHTING CRIME.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) BUT WE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT.

  • THEY WANT TO SEE US OUT THERE, TWO HIGHBROW SO AND SOS.

  • >> Stephen: SPEAKING EASE ESPIRANTO.

  • >> WATCHING BILL SHATNER IN, INCUBUS.

  • >> Stephen: PARAMOUNT PLUS, IT'S GREEN LIT RIGHT NOW, YOU

  • AND ME.

  • >> FLASHING GREEN.

  • >> Stephen: THE PROFFERS!

  • ( LAUGHTER ) CLASS IS IN!

  • I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPIER TO SPEND TIME TALKING TO YOU.

  • I HOPE WE CAN DO THIS IN PERSON SOME TIME.

  • >> I'D LOVE TO.

  • >> Stephen: THANKS AGAIN, ROBERT DOWNEY, JR.

  • AND I'LL SEE YOU ON THE P +.

  • WHEN WE COME BACK, WALTER ISAACSON TELLS US WHETHER WE'RE

  • HEADED TOWARD A GENETIC UTOPIA OR DYSTOPIA.

  • STICK AROUND.
