‘Sherlock Holmes 2’ Behind the Scenes: Robert Downey Jr In a Dress

By  · Published on January 18th, 2011

There are few things that demand to be as celebrated as grown men wearing lipstick and dresses for public entertainment. Fortunately, Robert Downey Jr also knows that, happens to be a fan of Some Like It Hot, and came up with the idea of Sherlock Holmes going under cover under some ladies’ undergarments.

Even more revelations came to light about the production when Entertainment Tonight went on the set, and they’ve delivered unto the world a video of their exploits. Try not to let the last comments seem too much like Downey Jr claiming he and Jude Law could beat up Noomi Rapace. Even though that’s what he says.

Plus, if you stay through the video, ET teases some hot pics of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the Golden Globes, plus pictures of Jennifer Aniston with her shirt unbuttoned. Both promise to be hard-hitting.

The first was a mess of a movie that barely made any sense, but the next installment sees the detectively duo going up against arch-nemesis Moriarty, so the ground is fertile for success.

On the other hand, if you’re a fan of the books, do you want to see Holmes in a dress?
