'Elementary' My Dear... Mycroft? Rhys Ifans To Join The Cast Of Sherlock Holmes


Rhys Ifans Jonny Lee Miller Lucy Liu Robert Downey Jr Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Basil Rathbone Jeremy Brett

Rhys Ifans will join the cast of Elementary, alongside Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Lui. The Welsh actor will play Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older brother. He is a definite feature in the season's premiere, airing in September but any possibility of further appearances has not been mentioned.

CBS' Elementary sets the traditional story of the famous detective in New York. Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu starring as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson will, according to reports encounter Ifans in London. The season premiere will be set in the British capital as the deducing duo are forced to  deal with one of Sherlock's former cases. Ifans as Mycroft allows them to stay with him at Baker Street. Apparently a reasonable amount of sibling rivalry and tension will ensue.

My Fair Lady Review


Essential
This is the cinematic version of Alan Jay Lerner's and Frederick Loewe's musical (the longest-running Broadway show of the 1950s), which was based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion (both of which, of course, are still mainstays of theater and high school drama) -- though it has been stripped of its mildly socialistic overtones and turned into a musical romance. Nevertheless, this version of the play/musical is a film classic, which has entertained millions of people since its release.

The plot is familiar: Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) is a professor of linguistics and a pompous, contented bachelor. On a wager with a colleague, Higgins undertakes to teach an illiterate Cockney, Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), to speak the King's English. Shaw's message was that, as the human mind is a blank slate, anyone in England could be aristocracy if they only had the right education. Lerner's screenplay dispenses with Shaw's dubious ideology, and instead turns the story into a smart romantic comedy satirizing various levels of British society. And like most musicals, the final message of My Fair Lady is love conquers all -- even misogynistic, pompous blokes like Higgins.
