No idea. I'm not sure about Idris Elba; I mean he's already playing a detective but Sherlock Holmes is a different kind of detective.

Idris Elba will always be Stacker Pentecost to me, I like Pacific Rim way too much.

Dwayne Johnson. Imagine their take on Holmes' drug/alchohol addiction:

"CAN YOU SMELL WHAT SHERLOCK IS COOKING?!"

I wouldn't really want a white Sherlock Holmes, unless it were modern day like Sherlock. Even then, it'd be weird. Anyway, I say Chiwetel Ejiofor.

#36 Posted by fodigg (6147 posts) - - Show Bio

Poor phrasing. It wouldn't be "black Sherlock Holmes", it would be "Sherlock Holmes". But yeah, Idris could do it. More Idris in everything.

John Watson wasn't asian or a woman, and Elementary's still pretty good.

Elba would be good but too gritty, Ejiofor screams classic Holmes.
