In an interview promoting her new film Morning Glory, McAdams said “It’s kind of all still in the process. They’re still doing script work, and we’ll see.” She didn’t totally rule it out, but also added “If I do, it won’t be a very big thing.”

(We saw only Moriarty’s hand and silouette in that picture, and the actor who voiced him has not been named. Rumors that it was Pitt persist.) Daniel Day-Lewis has also been rumored, but we never figured that would actually happen.
Now there’s a report that a less famous but quite capable actor will play the role: Jared Harris. Read More »
