Just Another Reason To Want To See Sherlock Holmes 2

One of my favorite English actors, Stephen Fry, is going to star alongside Jude Law & Robert Downey Jr. in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes 2.... how great is that!!! Now I know most of you guys are probably scratching your head and saying to your American self: "Who the fuck is Stephen Fry and why is Mike D so excited by this casting?" Since I love you guys, I will give you three answers to that question. 

  1. Stephen Fry is an accomplished British actor, but you probably know him for playing Dietrich, the TV host and anti-establishment sympathizer in V for Vendetta. He was one of the best parts of a very good movie, and the part where he tries to save Natalie Portman from the goon squad that finds out he is hiding her is my favorite scene in the whole flick.

  2. He will be portraying Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older and smarter (that's debatable) brother. He appeared in a few of the Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and the ones he did appear in were great. Dude was like a cornucopia of  information and made Sherlock frazzled at the fact that there was someone out there just as smart as him (if not smarter)

  3. The more casting news that comes out of this movie, the happier I am. Sherlock Holmes was a wonderful flick, Ritchie did it justice beyond all expectations, and the original books are some of my favorite of all times. To know that the good Doctor Watson, the living Victorian computer Sherlock Holmes, and the rest of the crew will be back for another go around is music to my ears. Fry just makes me chomp at the bit some more... now, who's going to play the villain, Professor Moriarity??? Mr. Pitt, it's time for your close-up.... 


  1. Thanks Mr. Spambot.... thanks a ton!!!

  2. Wow were we just spammed by artificial intelligence?! Awesoooooome!
