Lucy Liu joins CBS's Elementary

CBSLucy Liu has been cast in CBS pilot Elementary.

The pilot is for a modern-day version of Sherlock Holmes based in New York. Jonny Lee Miller has already been cast in Elementary as sleuth Sherlock and now his side-kick Dr. Watson has also been cast – Lucy Liu. A nice neat twist on the traditional Holmes/Watson partnership.

Liu currently plays Jessica Tang on TNT drama Southland and her other notable roles include Nola Lyons in Dirty Sex Money, Ling Woo in Ally McBeal and  Alex in both Charlie’s Angels films.
