John Noble (Fringe, Sleepy Hollow) has joined the cast of Elementary for its upcoming fourth season as a series regular.
Noble, whose other notable television credits include The Good Wife and 24, will play Mr Holmes, Sherlock’s wealthy, estranged father who arrives in New York City to deal with the aftermath of his son’s recent relapse.
The character has been referenced in past seasons as being instrumental in Sherlock’s first stint in rehab three years ago and in pairing his son with Joan Watson, his former sober companion, now his current investigative partner and friend.
“We could not be more delighted to have John Noble taking on such an important role”, said executive producer Robert Doherty. “We’ve enjoyed his work for many years now – especially his tremendous run on ‘Fringe’ – and cannot wait to see him opposite Jonny and Lucy. It’s going to be an exciting season.”
