I just read an interview with Stephen Fry on the Independent’s Web site which states that he’s going to play Holmes in an ITV production, with Hugh Laurie as Dr. Watson. (First Jeeves & Wooster, now Holmes & Watson; are they working their way through the classic British duos?) It also mentions that Rupert Everett has been cast as Holmes in a BBC production.
I know that Fry is something of a Holmesian, but what about Everett? Anyone know if he’s into the canon?
(PS: Lookit, I made a Watson icon!)
