First Look: Jude Law As Dr. Watson In SHERLOCK HOLMES

We started off this past weekend with a sneak look at Robert Downey Jr as the master detective Sherlock Holmes in director Guy Ritchie’s upcoming film, so what better way to start off the work week than with a look at Jude Law as Holmes’ longtime friend/sidekick/biographer, Dr. John Watson?

The folks over at Just Jared, who scored the Robert Downey Jr. pics, have also been first out of the gate with this look at Law. I’ve picked three of the best out of the ten pictures they have for the gallery below. You’ll notice that in the photos of Law walking and talking with Downey as Holmes, that Downey is dressed far more befitting a Victorian-era gentleman than he did in the previous set of photos, giving credence to the idea that Holmes was in disguise in those first pictures.

Optimistic. If Watson is protrayed in the vein of the Granada series, i.e an intelligent capable companion, and not the Nigel Bruce buffoon, this really could be something good.
