Girls Spies Elementary's Lucy Liu for Season 5 Episode

Girls Season 5

Elementary, my dear… Horvath?

TVLine has learned exclusively that Lucy Liu, star of CBS’ Sherlock Holmes-themed procedural, will appear in a Season 5 episode of HBO’s Girls.

But there’s a twist! We’re told that Liu — whose show films at Long Island City’s Silvercup Studios, as does Girls — won’t be playing herself, but rather a version of herself.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story included Liu’s Elementary co-star Jonny Lee Miller as an additional guest star. We’re now told it’s likely that Liu will appear solo.

HBO declined comment on this casting news, but you can feel free to drop your own comment below.

    Weirdest. Crossover. Ever.

  2. J says:

    I saw pictures of Lucy dressed as a cop filming with Adam Driver? He looked pretty janky too.

  3. CIP says:

    LL and JLM are the reasons I watch Elementary. Love both actors.

  4. Leah says:

    That’s the first time I’ve heard those two shows mentioned in the same sentence.

  5. julie says:

    Would love them to do a love scene on another show!

  6. i knew Lucy is going to appear in this show before, but Jonny will be there too???? yaaay can’t wait to see this!!!

  7. Belle says:

    Let’s hope Lucy nor Johnny Lee wear a hideous wig like when Lea guest starred on Scandal.

  8. At last, some recognition of the brilliant acting of JLM!

  9. Evelyn says:

    HBO declines comment, TV Line says “not likely”. Is it yes or is it no?? Will both Lucy Liu & Jonny Lee Miller both be on?? From promo pictures it certainly looks like him from the back.

    I still want to know what Dunham has on one or more HBO execs? Is it compromising pictures, videos, what? That’s the only explanation as to how her show is on the air. It is just plain terrible.

    Dunham mistakes her female costars for her little sister and fingers them.
