Moviehole interviews Robert Downey Jr.

An interesting chat with Robert Downey Jr. in which he famously puts down The Dark Knight ...
Didn't get it, still can't tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I'm like, 'I get it. This is so high brow and so f--king smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.' You know what? F-ck DC comics.
... gives us a taste of Iron Man 2 ...
I think it's going to appropriately well thought out so that we don't forget what got us the response that we appreciated so much, which is, we didn't say, 'Great, now that this is like this, now we're going to twist it and do this with it.'
... and tantalizes us with his description of the forthcoming movie Sherlock Holmes directed by Guy Ritchie.
... he's a lot more broad and less stoic than I remember seeing him depicted. He's a bare knuckle boxer, a martial artist and a complete weirdo which is why I said I'd love to do this."
It's all right here.

Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes for British Television (shown in the USA on PBS) is probably the greatest acting performance in the history of acting. And I wouldn't consider it "stoic." Downey's a great actor, and if he wants to make Holmes his own he'd probably be better off not studying the Brett performances. Otherwise, Downey will probably just imitate Brett.
