British actor Jared Harris recently spoke with MTV News about “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”, the upcoming sequel to the 2009 Robert Downey Jr. starrer, and briefly discussed how his role as Holmes’ arch nemesis Professor Moriarty fits into the action.
Harris says his role is “very much in the shadows” for most of the film and he’s not sure if he’ll be back for another entry – “I think they’re still trying to get this one ready and out there before they start thinking about the next one.”
Harris adds that the tone will be faster and more action-oriented than the first film – “There’s some fisticuffs. It’s great fun. It’s sort of like the story kind of starts a lot faster than the last one, almost like you’re coming in the third act of the story almost.”
