There have been many times in Hollywood that there are many different stars who have played the same character in different movies. Over the years we have seen a whole host of different actors playing the role of Sherlock Holmes on either the big screen or the small screen. Here we have decided to have a look at a few of our favourites.
Robert Downey Jr has played Sherlock Holmes
 
The most recent actor to play the role of Sherlock Holmes on the big screen was Robert Downey Jr. who played the role in the 2009 movie Sherlock Holmes, followed by the sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows in 2011. There has been talk of a possible Sherlock Holmes 3 being made but Robert has such a busy schedule that it is hard to see where they will fit it in.
 
While Robert Downey Jr. has enjoyed success as Sherlock Holmes on the big screen, British star Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the character in the television series Sherlock. Benedict has become one of the most sought after actors on the planet but that has not stopped the star from regularly returning to reprise the role.

Well now it looks like we are going to get a new Sherlock Holmes in the form of the legendary actor Ian McKellen who will play the role on the upcoming movie Mr. Holmes, which is based on the hit Mitch Cullin novel A Slight Trick Of The Mind. We have no doubt that Ian McKellen will be one of the best Sherlock Holmes stars we have seen.
