Robert Downey, Jr., Moves to Baker Street

File this under the "That's More Like It" category: after lamenting recently that Sasha Baron Cohen was set to play Sherlock Holmes (to Will Farrell's Dr. Watson) in an upcoming spoof, I was pleased to learn that Robert Downey, Jr., has just signed on to play the Great Detective in a new straight film. Downey's a great actor, and an interesting choice.

The film will be directed by Guy Ritchie. Fingers crossed, I guess.

Well, now, that's more like it! I could probably even deal with Will Ferrell as Watson if Robert Downey were to be Sherlock.
