So as much it might sound like brilliant casting for Robert Downey Jr. to play perhaps the most famous detective in literary history, I worry. Not for Downey who will surely make something arresting and innovative out of the part but really, does it have to be helmed by Guy? Does anything on his resume give you hope he has a Sherlock tale in him? As I said, I worry.
Am I being too tough on Guy? Am I missing something here? What kind of a Holmes do you think Downey will be? And here’s a question to ponder: who should play Watson?!?
