  1. The author (Mitch Cullin) of the novel that the movie is based on is also gay. Hope the movie is as good as the book!

  4. I'm guessing Gandalf-Holmes will have a different skill set than IronMan-Holmes.

  5. Like Ian McKellen said it is 'his turn'. Am REALLY looking forward to seeing it! Know from both his fantastic past and recent outstanding efforts, (Look at his King Lear!) that he will bring ALL of his experiences to the roll in a way that no straight or less sophisticated and less veteran actor can!
