After the news that Noomi Rapace will play a French gypsy, now the famous Stephen Fry has revealed that he will play Mycroft Holmes in the upcoming Sherlock Holmes sequel. The actor told Five Live's Danny Baker that he has been cast opposite Robert Downey Jr as the older brother of the Baker Street detective.
"I'm playing Mycroft in the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes film Guy Ritchie directed with Robert Downey Jr," he said.
"That sort of part (Sherlock Holmes) is fun, but just once in a while to play a genuine all-round sort of lead figure with complexity and tragedy and wit and all the sort of things that Oscar [Wilde] had was a once-in-a-lifeftime thrill," Fry added.
Downey Jr and Jude Law will return for the Sherlock Holmes 2.
The movie is due to film this year for a December 16, 2011 release.
