Stephen Fry Joins ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’

Stephen Fry recently announced that he was joining the cast of ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’. Fry will play Mycroft, the elder brother of Sherlock Holmes. Mycroft has deductive powers exceeding even those Sherlock, but is unwilling to put in the physical effort necessary to bring cases to their conclusions. Fry had the following to say on BBC’s 5 Live about the film:

“I’m playing Mycroft in the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes film Guy Ritchie directed with Robert Downey Jr., and that sort of part is fun, but just once in a while to play a genuine all round sort of lead figure with complexity and tragedy and wit and all the sort of things that Oscar [Wilde] had was a once in a lifetime thrill.”
