Beneath a crystal chandelier, Dev Patel ponders budget car-buying. The 22-year-old actor, clad in a soft cotton V-neck tee, relaxed jeans and dirt-scuffed green sneakers, surveys two publicists, a photographer and a photographer's assistant at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons. "How much do you pay for car insurance? How much do YOU pay?" Patel, who earned his driver's license in London last year, has cruised Los Angeles for months in a rented Toyota Corolla while costarring as blogger Neal Sampat in Aaron Sorkin's latest creation,"The Newsroom," which ends its much-discussed first season on HBO on Aug. 26. A suburban U.K. native with Indian roots, he's now settling into Hollywood, hoping to build a series of unexpectedly attention-grabbing roles into a serious career.

Under the supervision of Ron Clements and John Musker (who later helmed "Mermaid," "Aladdin" and the recent "The Princess and the Frog"), "The Great Mouse Detective" tells a Sherlock Holmes story more rooted in tradition than the recent Robert Downey Jr. vehicle -- even though all the main characters are rodents.

Except here, Sheen's pants are tighter.
