Exclusive: Robert Downey Jr. Pulls No Punches in 'Sherlock Holmes' Sequel
By David Weiner
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are back in action for director Guy Ritchie's highly anticipated 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,' in theaters December 16, and Robert shoots straight with our own Chris Jacobs about everything from punching a stuntman in the face to dressing in drag!
"Yes, dude looks like a lady," Robert says with a smile regarding a sequence that has Holmes disguised as a woman. "I think it was very upsetting to Watson on his honeymoon trip with his wife and then his pal shows up dressed like his mistress."
As for what his producer wife thought of his feminine transformation, Robert replies, "I think at this point that there's nothing I can do that's silly or outrageous enough to warrant her attention. It was actually my idea. I don't know what I was thinking."
In 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,' Holmes and Watson reunite to solve a murder and battle Holmes' greatest adversary, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), with the help of a wily gypsy fortune teller ('The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' trilogy star Noomi Rapace).
