It’s definitely the year of Robert Downey, Jr.!

Enjoying one of the — if not the — most fruitful years of this career, the Iron Man star, whose film just eclipsed the $300 million mark stateside alone, will receive his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced.

Also in the Class of 2009, which consists of 25 celebrities, are Cameron Diaz, Tim Burton, Charles Durning, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ben Kingsley, The Amazing Race mastermind Mark Burnett, Kyra Sedgwick, Babyface, Ralph Fiennes, Shakira and John Stamos.

Accomplished husband-and-wife duo Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy will each add Walk of Fame stars to their long joint list of accolades as well.

All stars will be unveiled on Hollywood Boulevard next year. Exact dates for each star memorialization have yet to be determined.
