Robert Downey Jr., fresh off his win at the 2024 Oscars for his role in “Oppenheimer,” is already looking forward to his next venture.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, the acclaimed actor teased that he has “a few other tricks up his sleeve” and expressed his excitement about showcasing his upcoming projects to fans.

One of Downey’s most anticipated projects is the HBO miniseries “The Sympathizer,” based on the best-selling novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen.

The series, set to premiere on April 14, will feature Downey in several characters in a departure from his previous roles.

Downey commented about his transition to the series, where he portrays four different characters, “It wasn’t particularly subtle, it wasn’t meant to be, but I’m already proud of what I’ve seen.”

Along with his wife and producing partner, Susan Downey, Robert shared his excitement for their collaboration, emphasizing that they are “just getting started.”

The couple, known for their successful partnership in producing projects like Netflix’s Emmy-winning fantasy series “Sweet Tooth,” expressed their shared vision for future endeavors.

Susan highlighted their mutual desire to explore new creative avenues together, underscoring their commitment to growth and innovation in their work.

The actor’s heartfelt Oscar victory speech, where he credited Sussanne for supporting him through tough times and reviving his career, resonated deeply among fans and industry peers.

Downey’s acknowledgment of Susan’s important role in his life underscores the strength of their partnership, both personally and professionally.

Throughout his career, Downey has experienced ups and downs, but his talent has continued to shine. From his acclaimed portrayal of Charlie Chaplin in “Chaplin” to his iconic roles as Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes, Downey has left an indelible mark on cinema. With “Oppenheimer,” his third Oscar nomination and first win for Best Supporting Actor, Downey continues to captivate audiences with his versatility and dedication to his craft.

Colleagues and friends like Jon Favreau and Jeremy Renner have expressed their admiration for Downey’s success and resilience.

Favreau, who directed Downey in the “Iron Man” films, praised the actor’s perspective on his achievements, while Renner commended Downey’s energy and joy in his current endeavors.

As Downey embarks on the next chapter of his career, fans eagerly anticipate his future projects and the creative collaborations he and Susan will undertake.
