During the [[TheEighties 1980s]], he was a cast member on the NBC sketch show ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' (his uncle, Jim Downey, was a cast member on the show in the 1979-1980 season and, next to Rob Smigel[[note]]the voice of Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog and the man behind the TV Funhouse cartoons that aired on the short-lived sketch series ''Series/TheDanaCarveyShow'', ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', and the short-lived SubvertedKidsShow, ''TV Funhouse''[[/note]] and Creator/LorneMichaels himself, is the longest-running writer this show has ever had. Downey has since left the show in 2013) and had roles in a series of coming-of-age films associated with the Creator/BratPack. He was cast to read one of the letters in the 1987 film ''Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam'' before his rise to fame. ''Film/LessThanZero'' is particularly notable, not only because it was the first time Downey's acting would be acknowledged by critics, but also because the role pushed Downey's already-existing drug habit one step further. After ''Zero'', Downey started landing roles in bigger films, such as ''Film/AirAmerica'' and ''Film/{{Soapdish}}''. These higher-profile roles eventually led to his being cast as Creator/CharlieChaplin in the 1992 {{biopic}} ''Film/{{Chaplin}}'', for which he gained an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for Best Actor.
