Robert Downey Jr. Is a Real Drag in ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ Trailer (Video)

“Iron Man” actor slips into something a little more comfortable — yet somehow quite awkward — in sleuth-movie sneak peek

As any detective will tell you, undercover work is an essential part of the profession. Even Robert Downey Jr., in character as legendary super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes, understands this.

A preview of the trailer for "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" — in theaters December 16 — has sashayed its way onto the Internet, and while the video quality is dubious at best, one thing is clear from the footage: RDJ will spend some portion of the movie in drag. Which we're assuming has something to do with the plot, rather than an attempt by Downey to enforce Casual Dress Day on the set.
