Jonny Lee Miller to play Sherlock Holmes in Elementary pilot

Deadline have reported that CBS have cast Jonny Lee Miller to play Sherlock in their upcoming Elementary pilot.

Coincidentally, Miller recently starred in a stage version of Frankenstein in which his co-star was Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock Holmes in the BBC‘s modern adaptation set in London.

Deadline describe Elementary as “a modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes who now lives in New York City.” Given that Miller is British, it would suggest that the CBS show will feature a British Holmes in the Big Apple, rather than having the character hail from the USA.
