Robert Downey Jr. And Val Kimer Reunite For Planters Peanuts Commerical?

This past weekend, for the first time since 2005, Robert Downey Jr. and Michelle Monaghan starred in the same movie: Due Date. Of course, that 2005 film was Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the criminally underseen return of writer/director Shane Black that was a pitch perfect send up of the classic film noir genre. Now it appears that Downey Jr. has teamed up with yet another one of his former cast-mates from the film, albeit in a very different format.

Today marked the launch of the new advertising campaign that features Downey Jr. as the voice of a re-imagined Mr. Peanut. The video has been circulating for the past couple hours, but now it appears that a little Easter Egg has popped up. The "plot" of the commercial has Mr. Peanut come face-to-face with a Nutcracker named Richard who attacked Mr. Peanut at a previous engagement. So who is rumored to be providing the voice for Richard? Mr. Gay Perry himself, Val Kilmer. The rumor has yet to be confirmed, but, if true, it would be really just be an added bonus.

Check out the video below and tell us what you think: is that Val Kilmer doing the voice?
