Jude Law as Watson...Maybe. Could be Billy Zane though

Variety have a tale to tell. That tale is that Jude Law will be appearing as Watson in the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movie opposite Robert Downey Jr. This may well be refuted in the near future, but for the minute it is good to go. I personally can't really see Jude Law as Watson. If anything he has more of the look of Holmes and Downey Jr looks more like a Watson. Plus Michael Caine played Holmes opposite Ben Kingsley's Watson and Jude Law appears to be slowly acting in every role Caine ever played (Alfie, Sleuth). Give it a few days and we shall see what's what. The game's afoot.

Jude Law is negotiating to join Robert Downey Jr. in "Sherlock Holmes," the drama that Guy Ritchie will direct for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures.

Law is expected to close a deal shortly to play Watson, the super-sleuth's sidekick.
Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin are producing. Production begins early next month in London.

The film will incorporate the classic tales written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as the comic book "Sherlock Holmes." Studio is still casting some of the principal roles, including the villain, Blackwood.
Is Jude Law a good Watson? Who would be the perfect casting for this role?
