Once you have a gajillion billion dollars from your social media empire, what can you do with your cash other than philanthropic ventures...and inventing increasingly outlandish ways to explore technology?

Back in January, Facebook head honcho Mark Zuckerberg announced that his rather unusual New Year's resolution was to create his own A.I. buddy to help him out around the house (and office) a la Tony Stark.

"My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work. You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in 'Iron Man'"

Zuck recently asked in another Facebook post, "It's time to give my AI Jarvis a voice. Who should I ask to do it?" but he was probably not expecting Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. to weigh in. RDJ went full Tony Stark on the post, saying that he'd voice Zuck's A.I. if certain criteria were met:

I'll do in a heartbeat if Bettany gets paid and donates it to a cause of Cumberbatch's choosing...that's the right kind of STRANGE!

No word yet on whether Jarvis actor Paul Bettany or Benedict "Dr. Strange" Cumberbatch are willing to participate, but, as Zuckerberg responded:

"This just got real."

As if Zuckerberg needed any more comparisons to Marvel's most humble superhero:


Would you like your own Jarvis to help you around the house or at work?
