Where did I saw Sherlock Holmes? You even quoted my entire quote. People like to be selectively offended.

Do you not remember when there was actual outrage over the idea that an American would possibly play Harry Potter?
He wasn't offended, he just expanded the parameters by including a third icon British character.
Exactly. I wasn't offended. I was just pointing out that Holmes is about as iconically British a character as you can get, and yet audiences seemed to have accepted Downey in the part. So maybe that "double standard" is crumbling . . . .
