Check out Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu as Holmes and Watson in Elementary


The American version of Sherlock is currently filming over in New York and this is our first glimpse of it.

Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Dexter, Eli Stone) will be playing the role of Sherlock Holmes, an eccentric Brit Sherlock Holmes is a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City. Lucy Liu (Ally McBeal, Charlie’s Angels) will be playing the role of Joan Watson, a former surgeon who lost her license after a patient died while consulting for the New York Police Department. The two live together in an apartment in Brooklyn, New York.

What to you think? Can this work? How do they compare to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman?
