Exclusive: Elementary's Super Bowl Episode Drafts Oz Alum as Big Bad

Elementary Super Bowl Episode: Terry KinneyCBS’ Elementary has tapped Oz alum Terry Kinney to tackle a villainous role in its big episode airing after Super Bowl XLVII.

In the high-profile episode, set for Sunday, Feb. 3 (at approximately 10/9c), Kinney will guest-star as an unpredictable criminal who causes chaos in New York. (Let the Moriartty speculation begin in 3…2…1…)

Since HBO’s Oz shuttered its doors, Kinney has guested on myriad series including CSI: NY, The Mentalist, The Good Wife and The Mob Doctor, and booked runs on Canterbury’s Law and The Unusuals.

Elementary — which as this season’s most watched freshman drama (with 13.9 million weekly viewers) got a full-season pick-up back in October — returns with fresh episodes on Thursday, Jan. 3 at 10/9c.

  • Sounds awesome. But he won’t be Moriarty. He’ll be Moriarty’s lacky etc. Moriarty is hardly seen in the books he is always in the background moving the chess pieces which are other criminals-lesser class villains.

    This could be a prelude to Moriarty though! :D

  • Personally, I thought Moriarty is the kid who was the “Balloon Killer”. The whole cold detached way he acted made me think that’s who he’d eventually be.
