The Big Baddie In The Sherlock Holmes Sequel Is…

| Filed under: Film FlickersRobert Downey Jr.Guy Ritchie


Daniel Day Lewis! (Sorry Brad! We know you were up for this, but he's going to MAKE this movie!)

In a brilliant casting move, sources are suggesting that Guy Ritchie has chosen Daniel to play Sherlock Holmes' nemesis Professor Moriarty in the upcoming sequel to the flick.

We love when good decisions are made and this is definitely a good decision. Danny boy doesn't just do any old movie. He's the picky kind, so for him to sign on to this means it's worth our his time.

    Daniel Day Lewis is one of the best actors alive - of course he's a great choice!

    Please be true…please be true, please be true, Oh My God, PUH-LEASE BE TRUE! If you get my hopes up about this, Perez, I swear I will never visit your freakshow site AGAIN!

    What's up with these Irish men. No one does bad Like Daniel! He will be great!
    Me dad's side is Irish/Native American. Mom is totally Paris, France.

    Great choice! that man is a great actor. I love almost all his work

    YAY! He's beautiful! He's beyond magical to watch on screen. Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes, however, had its moments, but I wasn't into it 100%. It could use a better scriptwriter this time around, and having Daniel doesn't hurt a production. He makes shit into pure gold (Nine). I'd rather see Daniel play something in Ritchie's sequel to RocknRolla, whenever the fuck thaaat happens. Or, I'd rather see Daniel in my bed.

    OH THANK GOODNESS!!! I SOOOOOOOOOO wished that the gossip about Brad being added to the cast was untrue. I will now definitely see the next installment of SH. The best decision Richie could've made. THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!! for not destroying the next movie with Billygoat.

    Both he and Downey are master scene stealers and they will be great fun to watch together.

    A sequel? Was the first one even that good?
    Hollywood is going to ruin RDJ the same way they ruined Johnny Depp.

    DDL is a great choice. Excellent actor and he stays away from all the Hollywood bullshit.

  19. 19

    Best actor ever!

  22. 22

    this means its going to be good, he doesnt just star in any old crap

  23. 23

    Oh wow. That's a great choice. I was thinking Christopher Eccleston, but Daniel Day-Lewis will be a great Moriarty. He can play bad.

  24. 24

    YES YES YES! Daniel Day-Lewis is fucking awesome.

    Re: electromouth – While Daniel was born in England, his dad was Irish, and the Day-Lewises went on trips regularly when DDL was young. Daniel has said he identifies with Ireland and the culture. He was always more Irish than the upper-middle class London he lived in his youth. He's been living in Ireland since the early 90s too.
