Allison Williams Benedict Cumberbatch Patrick Melrose Cast

Allison Williams to Cavort With Cumberbatch in Patrick Melrose

Girls‘ Allison Williams has found a new guy.

The former Marnie Michaels will guest-star on Patrick Melrose, Benedict Cumberbatch’s upcoming Showtime limited series, TVLine has learned.

The five-part project, formerly called Melrose, is based on Edward St. Aubyn’s novels and stars Cumberbatch as the title character, “an aristocratic and outrageously funny playboy” who turns to substance abuse to erase bad childhood memories of his abusive father.

Williams will play Marianne, someone Patrick runs into during his time in New York City.

The drama’s cast also includes Hugo Weaving, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Anna Madeley.

In addition to her years on Girls, Williams’ TV work includes The Mindy Project and Peter Pan Live!

    Have yet to hear a casting announcement for this show I didn’t like. The streak continues.

  2. Wonder if she’ll be doing filming in Scotland too for it, or if the Glasgow shoots are just for establishing shots etc.

    Oh, sure, he has time for this nonsense, but can’t fit Sherlock into his schedule.
