Entertainment Tonight has been able to meet the cast of the new Sherlock Holmes movie. So we may enjoy this interview here below:
Robert Downey Jr. is answering to those who may think that Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes isn't respecting the source material:
"The reinvention [of Sherlock Holmes] is actually a return to the idiosyncrasy that Conan Doyle had in his books that people hadn't really pay much attention to."
Robert Downey Jr.
I agree that there is indeed a lot of action in the Sherlock Holmes series. Not sure though that Robert Downey's physiognomy is that close to the original Sherlock Holmes as described in the book. But that's a detail we may forgive, and even won't even notice because of Downey's great acting talent.
