Aidan Quinn joins modern Sherlock Holmes series, Elementary
Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes will be getting a helping hand from Aidan Quinn in the upcoming Elementary…
Casting continues on CBS’ masterplan to bring a modern-day Sherlock Holmes story to American television. The project, which will have absolutely nothing to do with the BBC’s Sherlock, has already cast Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes, and Lucy Liu as Dr Watson.
Now? The show has cast Aidan Quinn, who will play the role of New York Police Department’s Captain Gregson. It’s Gregson who invites Sherlock Holmes to New York in the new series, with the backstory being that he worked with Holmes at Scotland Yard beforehand.
The show is going by the name of Elementary, and a pilot is being produced now. We’ll keep you posted on it.
