Director Guy Ritchie, the one who is getting divorced from Madonna, is working a new movie adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, the fmous novel series written a century ago by Arthur Conan Doyle.
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have cast for the lead roles. But the roles have assigned with disregard of the actors’ physiognomies: Downey is Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law is Dr. Watson. Had they followed the usual representation of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson the roles would have been reversed. The slim Jude Law looks more like the mythic Sherlock Holmes.
But I’m sure Robert Downey Jr. will surprise us anyway!
