Rhys Ifans - It's Elementary: Rhys Ifans To Play Sherlock Holmes' Brother On Tv

Welsh actor Rhys Ifans is to reteam with his Love, Honour & Obey co-star Jonny Lee Miller in hit Tv Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary.

The Amazing Spider-Man villain will play Mycroft Holmes - Sherlock's brother - when the show returns to U.S. Tv later this year (13).

Miller plays the modern version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective, opposite sidekick Lucy Liu, in the series, which debuted last year (12).

Ifans will appear as Mycroft in the season two opener, which will be set in London, and then return as a recurring character.

He's not the only actor currently portraying Mycroft Holmes - Stephen Fry played the sleuth's older brother in Guy Ritchie's 2011 Sherlock Holmes sequel, A Game of Shadows.
