First Look at RDJ as Holmes

Guy Ritchie just recently started production on his adaptation of Sherlock Holmes. The cast has been highly touted with Robert Downey Jr set as Sherlock Holmes, Jude Law as Dr. Watson, Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler (Holmes love interest) and Mark Strong playing the villain Lord Blackwwod. It seems Just Jared has got our first look at Downey Jr on set as Holmes. Sherlock Holmes surely doesn't look as daper as we may be use to seeing him in the past, but I think the change is good. I have full faith in Ritchie, even after RocknRolla (which I hated). I just hope Ritchie will shake it up a little bit with Sherlock Holmes. Anyways checkout RDJ on set below....

Thoughts on RDJ look in Holmes? Does it even look like Sherlock Holmes to you? Robert Downey Jr said when asked how he'd play the famous sleuth, "Clearly I’m going to do it better than it’s ever been done."
