CBS has cast Lucy Liu as Watson in “Elementary”


Further proof that CBS’ in-the-works Sherlock Holmes reboot will take the iconic franchise in a radical new direction: The network has cast Lucy Liu as Watson! 

TVLine has learned that Liu has been tapped to play Watson toJonny Lee Miller‘s Sherlock in Elementary, the network’s modern-day take on the famed detective saga.

Another key change: Sherlock and Watson now live in New York City.

What I actually like this decision though.
