    It is learned that the Iron Man actor is eyeing to both produce and star in the new HBO drama.

    The actor last featured in 2000, in Ally McBeal. Since then the actor had been seen in the red Iron suit protecting the world against evil forces as Iron Man. However, his return to the television only happened when he decided to do no more Iron Man films.
