Benedict Cumberbatch keen to "compare notes" on Sherlock: Tea with Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Downey Jr? (WEWOMEN.COM)
Sherlock Holmes has had a serious renaissance in recent years, with a Hollywood remake starring Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch's BBC smash and now the US hit show Elementary with Jonny Lee Miller. The UK's biggest export of the year is apparently keen to get together with his fellow Sherlocks and make like true Brits and have a cup of tea.
Benedict Cumberbatch has spoken about the rise and rise of his most famous character, Sherlock Holmes.
The eccentric detective has had various incarnations in the past few years and the 36-year-old is eager to meet his counterparts to "compare notes".
The actor has worked with the star of US smash hit Elementary before; he stared alongside him in the British National Theatre production of Frankenstein a few years ago.
Now magazine from the UK reported on his desire to share a cuppa with his fellow detectives.
He said: "[I'd most like to have a cup of tea with] Robert Downey Jr and Jonny Lee Miller. We could all sit down and compare notes. That would be fun.
“I know Jonny very, very well, but I don't know Robert at all. At least, I think it would be fun [to have tea with them]!”
Imagine that tea party!
