BBC Teases New ‘Sherlock’ with Provocative Tweet
The image was posted with the hashtags #221back (a reference to Sherlock Holmes’ canonical street address of 221 Baker Street, of course), #Sherlock, and #notkidding. We never believed they would joke about such a thing, but we’re grateful for the assurance provided by the last hashtag nonetheless.
Freeman and Cumberbatch both have roles in the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies; with Freeman in the title role, and Cumberbatch — via motion capture — playing the dragon Smaug.
Both actors, of course, have been busy. In addition to The Hobbit flicks, Freeman found great success and accolades this year for his small screen turn in FX‘s unexpected ratings and critical hit, Fargo. He’ll also be hosting SNL on December 13. Cumberbatch has been in a million things lately, but has major Oscar buzz on him this year for his performance in The Imitation Game.
