Benedict wants to compare notes with other Sherlocks

Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he’d love have a cup of tea and a sit down with other actors who have played Sherlock Holmes.

Benedict stars as a modern-day version of the detective in hit drama Sherlock and he’d like to compare notes with other stars who have taken on the role.

‘[I’d most like to have a cup of tea with] Robert Downey Jr and Jonny Lee Miller,’ says Benedict, 36.

‘We could all sit down and compare notes. That would be fun.’

Jonny, 40, who was married to Angelina Jolie for three years in the 1990s, plays another contemporary version of Sherlock in American series Elementary, whilst Robert, 48, has taken on the role in two recent films directed by Guy Ritchie.

Benedict is pals with Jonny but would be keen to meet Iron Man star Robert.

‘I know Jonny very very well, but I don’t know Robert at all,’ he says.

‘At least, I think it would be fun [to have tea with them]!’
