    Washington (ANI): Robert Downey Jr has reportedly been roped in to play Playboy boss Hugh Hefner in a big-screen biopic. After impressing the legendary porn mogul with his 'Iron Man' act, the star's name has been suggested for playing Hefner in the film, aptly titled 'Playboy'. The philandering Playboy boss liked the former hellraiser's portrayal of wealthy playboy Tony Stark in 'Iron Man', so much so that he just wants Downey Jr to play himself on celluloid.

    Reports from Illinois newspaper the Chicago Sun-Times, have suggested that Hefner wants the Golden Globe-winner to start shooting the movie in summer 2009. In fact, the 43-year-old star is also keen to, if in case the script fits the bill, reports Contactmusic. Apollo 13 filmmaker Brian Grazer has reportedly been roped in as the film's producer.
