S: Benedict’s got the looks of a Sherlock Holmes. He’s got that leading man sort of a thing. That Byronic thing. Given that we wanted Sherlock Holmes at the start of his career, when he has to be about thirty, he’s one of the very few actors about that age who’s got the gravitas and the imperiousness that will sell Sherlock Holmes to you. He has to be able to lord over proper police people. Walk into a room and do that.
M: Benedict was the only person we saw and it just clicks right away.
The way he lowers his head as he’s coming up the escalator is just.. HNNNNNNG.
