Re: Lucy Liu cast as Watson in CBS' Sherlock Holmes show
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.
Rex Stout conclusively proved that Watson was female in his BSI keynote speech, "Watson Was a Woman
," in 1941.
