ELEMENTARY: Rhys Ifans to Recur As Sherlock’s Brother

June 26, 2013 by  

Rhys Ifans has landed the recurring role of Sherlock Holmes’ older brother, Mycroft, on ELEMENTARY, CBS announced via press release. Ifans will make his ELEMENTARY debut in the second season premiere, which will be shot on location in London.

Per the network, in the premiere, “Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) is called to London to revisit an old case, where he is forced to face his older brother, Mycroft.  Although the siblings suffered a drastic falling-out a few years earlier, Mycroft allows Sherlock and Joan (Lucy Liu) to stay in his new home, 221B Baker Street.  With Joan in the middle, the brothers are forced to confront their very complicated history.”

“I could not be more excited to have Rhys coming aboard,” said ELEMENTARY creator Robert Doherty in a statement. “I’ve always been a tremendous fan and feel very honored to have him in the fold. Equally excited are Jonny and Lucy, both of whom have worked with Rhys in feature films.  I think this is going to be a lot of fun for all of us.”

ELEMENTARY’s second season debuts Thursday, September 26th at 10 PM.
