McAdams will portray Holmes' love interest, Irene Adler, a character who appeared in Doyle's 1891 "A Scandal in Bohemia." While the character only appeared in that one story, it's already been announced that the Wedding Crashers actress would return for any possible sequel.

Downey will play Holmes in the film, while Mark Strong takes on the main villain, Blackwood. Jude Law is portraying Holmes' colleague Watson.

Rachel McAdams was born in Ontario, Canada. She got her start as a mega bitch in Mean Girls, but truly became a star after her role in Wedding Crashers. McAdams has had an on again/off again relationship with actor Ryan Gosling.

McAdams actually worked at McDonald's for three summers before catching her first acting break. We're very glad she did.
