Could Daniel Day-Lewis face off opposite Robert Downey, Jr. in "Sherlock Holmes 2"?
It seems inconceivable that Guy Ritchie isn't considering HitFix's own Drew McWeeney to play Sherlock Holmes' great nemesis Moriarty in the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes 2," especially after all his years under the moniker at his old "cool" online address. Instead, even before the first "Holmes" even opened, rumors have flown that Brad Pitt would play the part. Now, Superhero Hype is reporting that none other than legendary actor Daniel Day-Lewis is being considered for the role.
The outlet says the two-time Oscar winner is Ritchie's first choice for the role, but he'd also consider Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Gary Oldman. Considering those actors have had their share of villainous roles lately it's hard to see them stepping up. Day-Lewis? Well, after "Nine" it wouldn't hurt.
It's worth noting the usually picky Day-Lewis has nothing on his schedule at the moment. The "Holmes" sequel is expected to begin shooting sometime this fall.
