Even though I personally think Soviet and modern English ("Sherlock" TV-series) adaptations of Sherlock Holmes is the best ones, I would only see the version of Nolan! I think it would be perfect.
Bale or McConaughey would be cast on the Sherlock's role in a Nolan's vision, Cillian Murphy would play Watson, Marion Cotillard could play femme fatale Irene Adler. Also James Moriarty could play someone like Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon or the new one for Nolan - Daniel Day-Lewis.
So, yeah, it's my cast:
Sherlock Holmes - Bale / McConaughey
John Watson - Cillian Murphy
Irene Adler or someone like her - Marion Cotillard
Moriarty - Leonardo DiCaprio / Matt Damon / Daniel Day-Lewis
Just perfect cast!
I can't see either of those 2 playing Professor Moriarty, as I envision him as being older and experienced looking, where as DiCaprio and Damon still have that pretty boy look to them. While Cotillard can definitely pull of the manipulative aspect of Irene Adler, I don't think she's capable of loosing that thick French accent, unless they decide to change the character's background.
