Three TV Spots for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows; Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law Discuss Their Bromance
10.30.11 by Ryan
This December will see the second installment of Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, respectively, and there's a good reason why the two actors were so quick to reunite for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, the sequel to 2009's Sherlock Holmes: they actually like each other. "I’m an admirer," Law said of Downey Jr. to Total Film. "When you’ve had a working relationship that’s both challenging and inspiring — and when it’s also easy to spend time with that person — then you do miss it, if I’m honest."
"And I’ve realized more this time around that there’s something about when you and I are clicking and [director] Guy [Ritchie]’s setting us up to win that I don’t know that I’d necessarily want to repeat that with somebody else," said Downey Jr. of his bromance with Law.
Ritchie concurs. "I think the bread and butter of this movie is always going to be the relationship between Sherlock and Watson and you can’t really have enough of those two and their camp banter."
See if you agree in three recently released TV spots.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was written by Kieren and Michele Mulroney and co-stars Stephen Fry as Sherlock's brother, Mycroft Holmes, with Eddie Marsan reprising his Sherlock Holmes role as Inspector Lestrade and Rachel McAdams returning as Irene Adler.
