Lucy Liu Lands Watson Role in Sherlock Holmes Pilot Show ‘Elementary’

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

“Elementary,” the CBS drama pilot that centers on Sherlock Holmes, has just signed Lucy Liu to play Watson — Joan Watson, that is. Writer Robert Doherty switched Watson’s gender in the modern-day adaptation.

Jonny Lee Miller plays Holmes, who Deadline.com describes as a “former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City.” Liu’s character lives with Holmes and is a former surgeon and consultant for the NYPD.

Do you think Lucy Liu will make a good Watson?
