Steve as Arthur -Conan Doyle?
I don't know if this is a joke or not, but I can see Steve playing the part.
Playing Sherlock Holmes With Google
— Mon, May 22, 2006 —
If you're like us, you use Google at least 100 times a day. So when the Google sign pays tribute to Arthur Conan Doyle we take notice. Especially because we didn't see anything about it in the New York Times.
If you're under the age of 25, you may or may not have ever heard of this guy ... but you surely know his characters by heart. And in the attempt to save you the three seconds it would take to do this yourself, we clicked on the Google sign, and pulled up some info on the author in celebration of his birthday.
And in homage to average Googler, we pulled up the first entry that came up instead of searching for the most reliable.
Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Scotland and studied medicine there, eventually serving as a physician in the Boer War (1899-1902). But his fame rests on his creation of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle published his first Holmes tale, A Study in Scarlet, in 1887. Over the following 40 years he published 56 short stories and four novels featuring Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. Watson. Late in life Doyle became closely interested in mysticism and wrote the 1926 book A History of Spiritualism.
And Steve Martin will be playing him in the on screen biography.
