CBS finds its Sherlock for Elementary

by on Feb.14, 2012, under Television

Jonny Lee Miller (Eli Stone) has reportedly been tapped to play Sherlock Holmes in the pilot for CBS’ modern day retelling of Sherlock Holmes, called Elementary. The script for the pilot comes from Robert Doherty (Medium), who will produce along with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Justified), with Michael Cuesta (Homeland) directing.

An interesting bit of trivia about this casting – Miller was recently playing the monster on stage in London for an adaptation of Frankenstein, which was split with another actor – Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock Holmes in the BBC’s modern-day version, Sherlock – and the producers of that version are not happy about the CBS version
