We’re used to seeing Robert Downey Jr. help humanity as both Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes. So it is appropriate that star will be lending a hand to the nonprofit cinema Cinefamily by attending today’s 2nd Annual Fantastic, Elastic 24-Hour Holiday Telethon held at the organization’s home, the Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles.
