Stephen Fry: Renaissance man -- without tights
You may have seen Stephen Fry in the latest "Sherlock Holmes" installment with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. He played Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older brother.
But there's so much more to this Englishman than acting in big-budget films.
Fry has been to all 50 states in the United States. A technology fanatic, Fry was a friend of Steve Jobs. He's also an established writer, having penned several books, including his most recent, "The Fry Chronicles: An Autobiography."
Fry, Charlie Rose remarked, is the epitome of the Renaissance Man. However, Fry remarked, there is one important difference between him and other Renaissance men.
"I would only say that, unlike many Renaissance men, I don't wear tights," he joked on "CBS This Morning." "That's the only difference."
