As candid as we've come to expect 'Sherlock' and eventual 'Star Trek 2' star Benedict Cumberbatch to be, it seems the popular UK thesp is retracing his steps in an effort to clear up his words. Recently, a number of outlets picked up Cumberbatch's comments toward friend and fellow actor Jonny Lee Miller over his decision to move forward with CBS' own modern-day Sherlock Holmes adaptation 'Elementary,' but is it apology or accusation?
For months we've been telling you about CBS' upcoming adaption of a modern-day Sherlock Holmes 'Elementary,' particularly the way it seemed to affect those in Steven Moffat's camp, executive producer of the other modern Sherlock Holmes series 'Sherlock.' It's all been words up until now, but with the Upfronts this week, wouldn't you like to see CBS' first look at the series? We thinks you would!
It happens just about every pilot season that one series winds up being compared to another for their apparent similarities. Just about every network sci-fi drama somehow gets measured up to be 'The Next 'LOST,'" and 'Smash' drew heavy 'Glee' comparisons at first, though very rarely a new pilot deals with the very same property as an existing show!
It happens all the time in America, but that doesn't mean the British have to be happy about it. A number of UK-originating series have made their way across the pond to be adapted for American TV, some more successfully than others, and now 'Sherlock' creator Steven Moffat has a bone to pick.
And now, we present to you Sherlock Holmes' greatest mystery to date: how he ended up in modern-day New York City, with his long-time partner suddenly swapping genders!
News already broke that CBS would develop modern adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes character 'Elementary,' starring British actor Jonny Lee Miller, yet set in New York City rather than London. Now, new details have emerged from TVLine that former 'Ally McBeal' star, Charlie's Angel and current 'Southland' babe Lucy Liu has nabbed the role of Holmes' most trusted companion, Watson! Huh?
