Fry, 53, told the The Danny Baker Show on BBC Radio 5 Live that he would be playing Mycroft Holmes in the forthcoming sequel. He said: ‘I’m playing Mycroft in the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes film Guy Ritchie directed with Robert Downey Jr., and that sort of part is fun.’ The follow-up is set for release in late 2011, and the film will see Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law return as Sherlock and Dr. Watson. Also confirmed to star in the film is Noomi Rapace, the actress who is best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish language version of the Millenium Trilogy – the film series which includes The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
