Jared Harris Cast As Moriarty?
More casting news from Sherlock Holmes 2 this morning, Jared Harris is either in talks about filling the role as Professor Moriarty in next year’s sequel or the deal is signed sealed and delivered (depending on which all-knowing source you believe).
Daniel Day-Lewis had appeared to be all but confirmed as Holmes’ arch-nemesis, but now it seems that Ritchie & Co. might have plumped for the British actor who plays Lane Pryce in Mad Men.
Son of the late Richard Harris, Jared Harris has featured in The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Igby Goes Down. But the Brit has also secured a role in the upcoming Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy which throws some doubt on the news as it is likely that the projects will clash. Having said that he’s not a lead in either…
