DOWNEY FACING JAIL FOR USING DRUGS, ALCOHOL

Robert Downey Jr. may have to clear his busy film schedule for some jail time.

The actor's probation was revoked Friday after his drug counselor said that Downey violated a court order by using drugs and alcohol last month.

A Dec. 8 hearing was set to determine Downey's penalty. He could be sent to jail for as much as three years or ordered to a drug treatment facility.

After a string of drug arrests, the 32-year-old Oscar-nominated star of "Chaplin" has been working steadily. He's in "One Night Stand," opening next month, and two films coming out next year -- "The Gingerbread Man" and "Two Girls and a Guy." He just finished filming "U.S. Marshals" and is about to start work on "Blue Vision."
