Stephen Fry to Play Sherlock Holmes' Brother in Film

Stephen Fry is to play the brother of Sherlock Holmes in the sequel to Guy Ritchie's 2009 film about the sleuth.

The actor, 53, told The Danny Baker Show on BBC Radio 5 live he would be playing Mycroft Holmes - older brother of Arthur Conan Doyle's detective.

Robert Downey Jr will again play the lead character with Jude Law reportedly reprising his role as sidekick Watson.

John Torturro always popped in my head whenever I'd read a Holmes book and Mycroft would make an appearance. But actually having them point out Stephen Fry for it here and looking at him....definitely a nice fix for the role. Could be done very well.
