Immortal quote in Great Sherlock Holmes Debate Video 2

"Robert Downey Junior as Sherlock Holmes? I think not"

Roger Johnson, Sherlock Holmes Society of London

[even with a hat, Jude Law towers over RDJ and in the original stories Holmes was over 6 feet tall, thin and aqualine…..].

He’s a great actor, but he can’t “play tall”……. ouch.
