“If Harmony is her character, it also appears to be one of Monaghan’s strengths — her part being sandwiched between the roles of Downey Jr. and Kilmer, a bumbling thief and gay detective, respectively. The trio, according to the Iowa native, clicked from the start.] I have to say I was in awe of them, … These were two actors that I really admired for such a long time, but on the first day they literally said, ‘Go for it — do whatever you want creatively.’ ”
“So, no drama on the set?] No, I didn’t see it, … In fact, I thought, ‘Well, God, maybe I could do something that would spark some controversy.’ ”
Born and raised in the small town of Winthrop, Iowa, the actress Michelle Monaghan moved to Chicago after graduating from high school to become an investigative reporter.
