    Just curious. My favorite is Jeremy Brett. To me, Brett IS Sherlock Holmes.

    Agreed, Brett was awesome. Basil Rathbone was good, but he didn't capture the character as well as Jeremy Brett did.

    I did like Michael Caine though.

    Robert Downey Jr. is my favorite Sherlock Holmes actor - not only is he the best actor alive at the moment but I really dig his unique interpretation that is both faithful to Doyle and completely different in many ways.


    Brett, Rathbone are great too; Cumberbatch will prove a classic Holmes as well and I am really enjoying Johnny Lee Miller's interpretation in "Elementary."
