Elementary Exclusive: Craig Bierko, Third Watch Alum Molly Price Pique Sherlock's Interest

And so begins the parade of familiar faces who will vex master mystery-cracker Sherlock Holmes on CBS’ new drama Elementary.

TVLine has learned exclusively that onetime Boston Legal lawyer Craig Bierko is set to guest-star in the freshman drama’s fourth episode as Fowkes, the imposing and fit COO of a top Wall Street financial firm who is involved in a murder investigation led by Sherlock.

Third Watch alumna Molly Price will appear in the same episode as Donna, Fowkes’ trusted executive secretary (or “SEK-reh-tree” as Holmes might pronounce it).

    • I agree. Molly Price is an extraordinary actress. I think she’s amazing in every role I’ve seen in.

  • I wonder if they will use Irene Adler in the show and who they would cast. Lara Pulver was great in Sherlock.

    • With a female Watson, do they even need Irene at this point? Seems redundant to me. Plus I hated Irene on Sherlock anyway. *prepares for rotten fruit*
