Jonny Lee Miller Set To Play Sherlock Holmes In CBS's TV Series ELEMENTARY

Eli Stone and Dexter star has been tapped to play another version of modern-day Sherlock Holmes in US television show Elementary. Check it out...

Jonny Lee Miller, the actor best known for his roles in Eli Stone, Dexter, Trainspotting, is set to play another modern-day Sherlock Holmes in CBS's upcoming TV series called Elementary. From Deadline:

"CBS’s Sherlock Holmes reboot Elementary has solved its first big mystery — who will play the famous detective. Former Eli Stone star Jonny Lee Miller has been tapped as the lead of the project, a modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes who now lives in New York City."


With BBC's Sherlock being a huge success, it was only a matter of time when we would see a US version of the modern-day Sherlock Holmes. What's interesting here is that Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch were two main leads in the the stage adaptation of Frankenstein, directed by Danny Boyle. Miller can next be seen in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. What do you think of this casting?
