Robert Downey Jr. has agreed to appear in eight more episodes of the Fox series "Ally McBeal." The deal was struck Tuesday, and terms were not disclosed. "Working on 'Ally McBeal' has been such a satisfying process that I am grateful to have been asked to continue on for the remainder of the season," Downey said in a Fox-issued news release. Downey, 35, plays the love interest of Ally McBeal, played by Calista Flockhart. The role earned him a Golden Globe award for supporting actor last month. Downey's first appearance back on the show will be Feb. 26.
