It is being reported that Daniel Day-Lewis has signed on to play Professor Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes 2. Brad Pitt was previously rumored for the role, but the latest report suggests that director Guy Ritchie has hired Lewis for the role.
If this is true, this is GREAT news. Day-Lewis would make a great Moriarty. Take Bill the Butcher mix in some Daniel Plainview and add to that his natural/real-life intelligence and superb acting ability...he'll kill this role if given the freedom and opportunity to do so.
