Earlier this month I wrote about some news and rumors on the sequel of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes; news that Sherlock’s older brother Mycroft Holmes will be making an appearance. And somehow I did not see this coming; yet it makes so much sense. The brilliant actor Stephen Fry has been cast in the role of Mycroft Holmes.

Stephen Fry is intelligent, comedic, and has class. What else is there to say? It’s perfect casting. Absolutely perfect.
