Robert Downey Jr., Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris in new photos from Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

This isn’t technically the first image of Jared Harris as Moriarty since he was in the background of Robert Downey Jr.’s big headshot on the first poster for SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS. But this is the first real look we have at Holmes’s arch nemesis. Harris is probably best known to American audiences for his work as the goofy Lane Pryce on ‘Mad Men’ or possibly as the creepy David Robert Jones in TV’s ‘Fringe’. But pretty soon, he’ll be known as Moriarty. And I know that some of you are still disappointed that rumored A-listers like Brad Pitt and Daniel Day Lewis didn’t take the part, but give Harris a chance; the guy has been great in the small parts he’s had so far. We also get a few new shots of the gang back in action. I’m still interested to see how they work Noomi Rapace into the film.
SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS (yes, that’s the real title) is loosely based off Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story ‘The Final Problem’, which featured Holmes tracking Moriarty through Europe. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Stephen Fry and Noomi Rapace. The Guy Ritchie directed film hits theaters on December 12th.
