'Mad Men' actors cast in thriller, 'Holmes'

Posted on


Image Credit: Frank Ockenfels 3/AMCIt’s a big day in the Mad Men universe: Vincent Kartheiser and Jared Harris have each been cast in new movies. Kartheiser, a.k.a. Pete “Bitchface” Campbell, has joined Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in a still-untitled thriller “about a society where no one ages beyond 25, except for those rich enough to buy time,” according to Variety. Ooooh, concept-y.

Harris, a.k.a. Lane “Cane to the Head” Pryce, will play the evil Professor Moriarty in the upcoming Sherlock Holmes sequel with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Moriarty will be “the main villain” in this installment, sayeth Variety , so here’s hoping for a major showdown between Downey’s rat-a-tat detective and Harris’ languid, darkly brilliant version of the professor. Contrasts, you guys. Contrasts.

Go nuts, PopWatchers: What other roles would you cast these two in?
