When I was a teenager back in days of yore, it was such a treat to watch all those wonderful Sherlock Holmes movies starring Basil Rathbone. I am still an avid Sherlock fan, so I feel excited about the opportunity to talk with Ed Fitzelle concerning Sherlock Holmes movies and the actors who have portrayed this fictional master detective. Ed, a Sherlock expert, will be dropping by Movie Addict HQ to discuss this fun topic.
Did you know that more
than 70 actors have appeared in upwards of 200 cinema projects featuring this
popular character? The latest actor signing on as Sherlock is Sir Ian McKellen
in Mr. Holmes, a film scheduled for release in 2015. McKellen adds his
name to an impressive list including such diverse actors as Basil Rathbone,
Jeremy Brett, Charlton Heston, Michael Caine, Christopher Plummer, Nicol
Williamson, John Cleese, Douglas Fairbanks, Benedict Cumberbatch,
Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Downey, Jr.
