'Sherlock' Adds Toby Jones as Season 4 Villain
Fans are clamoring for more of BBC's Sherlock, and who can blame them? With Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman growing in popular in the entertainment world, who knows how long the show has left.
Sherlock's fourth season began filming last month and will air early 2017, and a new name has joined the cast. Toby Jones will play in a villainous role, following his presence in the Captain America films as a Nazi scientist-cross-artificially intelligent threat.
Steven Moffat, co-creator of Sherlock, has confirmed that Jones will play a character from the novels as opposed to a newly-invented antagonist. The actor will, in Moffat's words, be "bringing to life one of Doyle's finest villains."
Jones is the first major guest casting to be announced, joining series regulars under Moffat and fellow showrunner Mark Gatiss.
