As my very first post on Baker Street Babble mentioned, we're living in a particularly active time for adaptations of Sherlock Holmes on the big screen and the small screen. (And the computer screen...) We've got Sherlock, Elementary, the Guy Ritchie films, and Ian McKellen playing the retired Holmes in Mr. Holmes. But the list of actors who have donned the deerstalker stretches back into history...
This Nerdist article shares a gallery of 15 of the most prominent actors to have played Holmes since 1922. The author points out that 130 actors have played the famous detective over the past 100 years. Who will be next, I wonder?
