The actor/director commentary for Tropic Thunder is just Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Downey Jr, with Downey Jr as Osiris the whole time.

Only when Osiris changes to Kirk Lazarus in the film does Downey Jr change his voice to Aussie, then only changes to Downey Jr properly when the credits roll.

It's worth watching the commentary just for that.


The best part about that is the meta joke in the film itself. In one of the scenes in the film, RDJ's character says something to the effect of "nah, I don't drop the character 'till I do the DVD commentary, baby."
