Robert Downey Jr. Talks Sherlock Holmes

Robert Downey Jr. Talks Sherlock Holmes

Robert Downey Jr., who plays the title character in the upcoming feature film Sherlock Holmes, joins costar Rachel McAdams for the film’s pre-production press conference at Freemasons Hall on Wednesday in London.

“I think me and [director Guy Ritchie] are well-suited to working together,” RDJ said. “The more I look into the books, the more fantastic it becomes. Holmes is such a weirdo,”

Also present: British actress Kelly Reilly and costar Mark Strong. McAdams will play Sherlock’s love interest Irene Adler, Mark Strong will play the part of villain Blackwood, Jude Law (not pictured) will play super sleuth sidekick Dr. Watson and Reilly will be Watson’s love interest Mary.

This movie has all the right elements to be a box office hit. Let’s hope they do this mystery drama right!

Don’t forget Iron Man was just released on DVD yesterday. The two-disc Ultimate Edition has a ton of featurettes and also has RDJ’s screen test for the role of Tony Stark.

cool cast. Very international.

Did they drop SIenna Miller for Rachel McAdams? If so, smart move.

robert was so funny in tropic thunder ahha

rachel mcadams is ******* lucky!
and LMFAOO at: Holmes is such a weirdo

Goodness. I love this man.
Iron Man is so freakin’ awesome.

This is fantastic! Love Love the cast. Rachel is super cool and of course Downey is great, & I can’t say enough good about Jude. Now we just need to see photos of Jude with the cast and everything will be complete!
I don’t know this Kelly Reilly, but she is really pretty… ;)

Yay, he shave the stash!!

And love Rachel!

I’m so relieved Sienna Miller’s name is no longer attached to this movie. It would have prevented so many people from seeing the great actor that is Robert Downey Jr!

Great cast and I love Guy Ritchie. He always looks like a regular guy but soooo sexy and macho.

Actually I predict an affair between McAdams and Downey or McAdams and Jude Law. McAdams/Downey would be scandalous because he’s married, but McAdams/Law are both single, so it would make sense! Good couple? Yay? Nay?

Great cast and great director!! Can’t wait to see this movie!

I like the idea of Rachel & Jude together! She’s an upgrade from Sienna for sure!

No, no affair between Jude and Rachel…she and Ryan are more suited to be together.

And NO to an affair between Downey and Rachel…he’s married, and again, I like her and Ryan together.

Looking forward to this movie.

Awesome! Can’t wait for this movie to come out X3

Rachel hardly ever smiles normally. And her legs always looks bruised, bloodied and battered.

I love this cast! Rachel and Robert seem like they’d be a great match. Jude and Kelly I great too. She was awesome in P & P!
I agree, trading Sienna for Rachel could not be a smarter move! Both in terms of acting and for the image of the movie. This one should be good!

Rachel McAdams is one classy girl! I am really looking forward to her three coming films TheTime Traveler´s Wife with Eric Bana, this Sherlock movie with Robert Downey Jr, and State of Play with Russell Crowe!

Woo-hoo! RDJ and Rachel!!!! The sparks are going to fly!!!!!!
