Elementary Exclusive: Newsroom Actor Nabs Guest Spot as Sherlock's Ally
TVLine has learned exclusively that the actor has booked a guest spot in an episode of CBS’ new fall drama Elementary.
He’ll play Dr. Mason Baldwin, a brilliant surgeon who becomes an unlikely ally to Jonny Lee Miller‘s Sherlock as the eccentric detective investigates a murder in a hospital.
Elementary — which bows Thursday, Sept. 27 at 10/9c — is a modern-day take on the iconic sleuth, who in this version is a recovering addict solving crimes alongside his sober companion Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). Aidan Quinn (Prime Suspect) co-stars as Holmes’ NYPD liaison, while Jon Michael Hill (Detroit 1-8-7) plays a police detective.
