There's no doubt that Iron Man put Robert Downey, Jr. right on the top of the A-List. The world couldn't be happier for him, and I think we're all excited to see what juicy roles he nabs as a result.

An intriguing rumor floating around Entertainment Weekly is that Downey, Jr. has his eye on a character even more iconic than Tony Stark -- Sherlock Holmes. If you remember, last week we reported that Guy Ritchie is helming Warner Brothers' reboot of the famous detective. The new Holmes will be a swashbuckling action hero, and based not on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels, but Lionel Wigram's comic book.
