Best part of the whole trailer, although I have alternative reasons for thinking so and nothing to do with Sherlock Holmes.
To say I am excited is an understatement. I've been following the production since Mister Downey was cast back in October 2008. I read all 56 short stories and 4 novels (excellent literature btw). I bought the same style hat from the same London hat shop that Mister Downey purchased his that he wears in the movie. I'm putting the finishing touches on a replica costume for Halloween. And I have a new tattoo of the previous mentioned hat to commemorate over a year of Sherlock Holmes craziness.

Physically, no. Mister Downey does not fit author Conan Doyle's description of Sherlock. So I would agree with you that he doesn't look the part. However he's talented enough to make up for that in personality and charm. What little I have seen in the trailers, Mister Downey's version is a bit truer to the character as he's portrayed in the original stories in my opinion. Holmes was a man of action as well as great intellect. I know many purists disagree with me though.
