The historical fancy dress Robert Downey Jr wears for his role as Sherlock Holmes went unworn earlier this week after an unscheduled break was called during the filming of the sequel. According to the Sun, the actor caused staff and film crews to down tools for the day on Tuesday (October 5th 2010) after he called in sick. "Everyone was fired up and ready to go. Word filtered around that Robert had a bit of a sniffle and wouldn't be coming in. It was a bit of a shock," an unnamed source said. He probably had to swap his Sherlock Holmes costume for a pair of pyjamas! Meanwhile, in a strange coincidence, Johnny Depp also abandoned his Pirates of the Carribbean fancy dress on Tuesday after he too was struck down with a bug. A spokesperson simply said he was "poorly". Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is subtitled On Stranger Tides and opens in cinemas on May 20th 2011.
