Further proof that CBS’ in-the-works Sherlock Holmes reboot will take the iconic franchise in a radical new direction: The network has cast Lucy Liu as Watson!
TVLine has learned that Liu has been tapped to play Watson to Jonny Lee Miller‘s Sherlock in Elementary, the network’s modern-day take on the famed detective saga.
Another key change: Sherlock and Watson now live in New York City.
Seriously, what the hell? Why make Watson female? This looks like it is going to be so stupid.
