Are You Not Entertained?!
Thank God - finally something worth writing about. It's been a rough couple of weeks.
Although this comes from The Sun, a source with a pretty questionable track record, it's still better than nothing. Russell Crowe is apparently interested in playing Watson in Guy Ritchie's upcoming Sherlock Holmes adaptation. If true, he would partner with Robert Downey, Jr. (starring as the titular detective) to form the Bizarro duo against Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell as Holmes and Watson in their upcoming comedic take on the same characters.
I don't know anything about Sherlock Holmes and Watson other than what was alluded to in The Great Mouse Detective, but I think it would be pretty funny for Crowe to play a bumbling sidekick (if that description is even accurate for Watson's character).
