Benedict Cumberbatch on Alan Carr: Chatty Man

In recent years, CBS has had its own share of Sherlock Holmes with Gil Grissom (William Petersen) from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) from The Mentalist.

Now, "the world's greatest detective" is finally coming to the Eye Network in the pilot Elementary with English actor Jonny Lee Miller in the lead role with Holmes solving crimes in modern-day New York.

If picked up as a series, Elementary will be Miller's return to series television since playing the titular lawyer on ABC's Eli Stone.

The actor, who was once married to Angelina Jolie, can next be seen with Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Helena Bonham Carter in director Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, which comes out May 11.

DoubleG is based in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, United States of America, and is an Anchor on Allvoices.
