Sherlock Holmes 2 has a Mycroft

From Moviephone – this is officially the best cast movie I have ever seen. So we have Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Jared Harris, Noomi Rapace, and now, the actor who will play Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s older brother, a fatter, lazier version of Holmes whose powers of deduction may surpass even those of his younger sibling, but who is utterly unwilling to do the legwork to put them to any practical use, is…

Stephen Fry!

For those of us in U.S., Fry was most recently the voice of the Cheshire Cat in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, and he still occasionally stops by BONES to reprise his role as Booth’s pre-Sweets psychologist.

He is the perfect fit for Mycroft’s shoes. Once again, whoever is casting this movie, I salute you.
