Lucy Liu: Watson in Sherlock Holmes Pilot ‘Elementary’
Lucy Liu stops by the Ritz-Carlton New York and Wella Professionals Beauty Bar booths at the Official Presenter Gift Lounge at the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards held at Santa Monica Pier on Saturday (February 25).
The 43-year-old actress is set to play Joan Watson, Sherlock Holmes’ sidekick in CBS’ drama pilot Elementary, written by Robert Doherty.
According to Deadline, the series is “set in present day and stars Jonny Lee Miller as eccentric Brit Holmes, a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City. Just out of rehab, Holmes now lives in Brooklyn with “sober companion” Joan Watson (Liu), a former surgeon who lost her license after a patient died, while consulting for the NYPD.”
Other pics include Matt Bomer picking up a pair of New Balance running kicks and also checking out Wella at the Spirit Awards.
Shailene Woodley, who won a Spirit Award, was such a good sport, stopping off at a few booths – Tree Hut, Emergen-C, Fashion Forms, AMC Theatres, and Crunch!
