Jude Law: Being an Actor is Like Being Sherlock Holmes

Jude Law, who plays the fictional detective's stalwart partner Dr. John Watson in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011), says being an actor is like being Sherlock Holmes.

"I think this job in particular allows us all to be Holmes-ian; eccentric and imaginative and creative and to think out of the box. Real life, away from work, requires us to be slightly more Dr. John Watson."

Jude stars in the sequel to the 2009 film with Robert Downey Jr., who returns in the leading role.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011), which is directed by Guy Ritchie and is inspired by the novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, sees Holmes and Watson come together again to try to outwit adversary Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris).
