As if reuniting Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly for a Sherlock Holmes comedy wasn't good enough, the cast of Holmes & Watson is shaping up quite nicely. Rebecca Hall, Rob Brydon, and Kelly Macdonald have joined the film which will be written and directed by Get Hard's Etan Cohen. Hall will play Dr. Grace Hart, London's first practicing female doctor. Rob Brydon is Scotland Yard's lead inspector, while Macdonald is Mrs. Hudson, Holmes' housekeeper. This news follows on the recent casting of Lauren Lapkus as a potential love interest and intellectual rival to Holmes. [Deadline]
