Is Colin Farrell, Dr. Watson?

According to our friends at JoBlo, Colin Farrell is in talks to play Dr. Watson in the Guy Ritchie-directed “Sherlock Holmes”.

There’s no deal yet, but the site says that the “In Bruges” star is the frontrunner to accompany Robert Downey Jr’s Kung-Fu Detective on whatever his latest mission entails.

Expect either a confirmation, denial or some webbly skepticism in due course.
