Photos of Robert Downey Jr. on the Set of Sherlock Holmes in London

Robert Downey Jr. Takes on Sherlock Holmes

Robert Downey Jr. got into character, other than his Starbucks cup, on the set of Sherlock Holmes in London on Friday. Guy Ritchie also dressed up for work as he gave RDJ a few pointers between takes. Seeing Robert all dressed up with the signature Sherlock hat is getting us even more excited for the film, especially since it can only be a matter of time before costar Rachel McAdams is spotted by his side.

:woohoo: I cannot wait for this film to go into theaters. I never thought I would say that about a Sherlock Holmes film however I just feel that RDJ will bring the character to a brand new level. And it helps that I adore his movies (and could he look any cuter in costume!)

Could that perhaps be a disguise that Holmes wears while he's sleuthing?

i'm PSYCHED about this movie and i can't wait to see what the end result is. i'm a huge fan of RDJ and i think that rachel can certainly add something to the cast as well.

i can't wait for rdj to come out with this - he is one of our few actors who can act!

Guess I will have to settle for an English director. Would have liked to have seen an English actor in this role. After all it is Sherlock Holmes. But I am sure Robert will arise to the occasion.

GO RDJ but its reminiscent of his old movie before.

God, he is awesome! He looks so cool in anything. Since it just started filming, I'm going to guess that he's wearing that just to get into character, and that's not necessarily the final look. Either way, I think he wears it well and it is very Holmes-y to me.

He's truly a brilliant actor. I'm so glad he has appeared to have kicked his demons and is now on the straight and narrow. He has wonderful talent.

babyblue -- I thought the EXACT same thing. Maybe it is just b/c he made a movie about Chaplin's life, but he is looking far more tramp than super detective.

I wonder if the movie is looking at Sherlock's life before he became an inspector; which would completely explain the period attire.

Damn, Guy, it's 1 of the first things you learn regarding fashion dos and donts, never ever wear brown shoes with a grey suit! Pathetic...

doesn't quite have the Sherlock Holmes look yet. but it's the beginning of filming so i won't judge too early.

"the signature Sherlock hat" is a deerstalker and what Downey Jr is wearing is a bowler hat. Still, the film might be good.

Robert's acting abilities earned my respect with 'Less than Zero'... so I'm happy to see that he didnt' let his personal life ruin his career. All the best Robert.
