‘Iron Man’ star Robert Downey Jr. hopes that Coldplay’s Chris Martin will perform the soundtrack of his new Sherlock Holmes film. Downey Jr., 44, believes that Martin, 32, will be the right person for the musical score, as the rocker is a huge fan of the super sleuth.
The actor also revealed that the singer has been offering him tips about playing Holmes on the big screen, and that he hopes Martin will be a part of Guy Ritchie's much-anticipated movie. “We are hoping Chris Martin of Coldplay will contribute to our score,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying. “He’s a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. He told me you need to be really skinny, which is always the last thing you want to hear,” he added.
Robert Downey Jr has finished filming scenes as the fictional detective in a new big-screen adaptation by director Guy Ritchie. Downey Jnr. slimmed down considerably for the role - and credits good friend Chris Martin for shaping his portrayal of the iconic supersleuth. He says, "He's a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. He said to me before we began 'You've got to be gaunt. You've got to be as skinny as you possibly can to play Holmes.' So every time I'm reaching for a muffin I just think about Chris Martin and skip the snack. That's been tough."
