Russell Crowe is Sherlock Holmes

Russell Crowe is Sherlock Holmes

Rugby team Rabbitohs part owner Russell Crowe celebrates with his 3-year-old son Charlie Crowe after the Rabbitohs’ victory over the Eels on Sunday in Sydney, Australia.

Russell, 42, had attended the round two NRL match between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Parramatta Eels at Telstra Stadium.

The Gladiator star is now being touted to star as Sherlock Holmes. A source tells UK’s The Daily Express, “Unlike previous films this one is going to focus more on Holmes’ physical attributes, including his talent for bare-knuckle and sword fighting, which were both mentioned in the original books.

“Russell is the favorite for the role as it’s felt he’ll give the character the action-man-like qualities the part is going to require. He’s also proved in past films that he can pull off a convincing British accent.

“It’s hoped the new story will retain the traditional flavor of the original books and it will be made in participation with the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle estate.”
