Downey screens new movie at Ohio military base

DAYTON, OH (AP) -

Actor Robert Downey Jr. made a surprise appearance at an Ohio Air Force base for a screening of his new movie.

Approximately 900 military personnel and friends cheered when Downey walked into the packed theater Sunday at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. He was there to screen his new movie, "The Judge," which doesn't open until Friday.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1xVbUh7 ) reports that Downey said he wanted to stop at the base because he's always been drawn to all things military.

He said "it's just a way of reminding myself that there are people out there who put their lives on the line so I can go out and make movies."

In "The Judge," Downey portrays a Chicago lawyer who confronts his past in his rural Indiana hometown.
