Oh yes… yes… yes… twirls you all… I have been waiting for this news FOREVER!
According to an EW Exclusive:
The new year is going to bring Sherlock and Joan face-to-face with an old foe — Natalie Dormer’s Moriarty, seen above in a photo you’re seeing first on EW.com. But what brings the trio together again in the episode, which airs Jan. 2? We hopped on the phone with executive producer Rob Doherty to get the scoop.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Set up the episode for us.
DOHERTY: A young girl is kidnapped in New York City, and Sherlock and Joan come to believe that Moriarty may have orchestrated the abduction, which is a tad confusing since she’s been in federal custody for several months now. So in the episode, they seek her out and she becomes something of a participant into the investigation into the kidnapping.
EW: Moriarty’s presence always brings up complicated feelings for Sherlock. How does that manifest in the episode?
People who have enjoyed the complicated relationship will not be disappointed. It remains as complicated as ever. It’s very interesting for Sherlock to see her and be around her again. And it’s, of course, not just about how it lands on Sherlock but Joan as well, given that Joan played such a major role in Moriarty’s takedown at the end of the first season. There’s plenty of unfinished business between those, so we single those two out for a little alone time over the course of the episode.
Moriarty certainly doesn’t have the power in this situation. Can you talk about how that character deals with that?
She recognizes that she was defeated but she hasn’t quite figured it out yet.
I think she’s certainly one to point out that she has a lot in common with Sherlock, but unlike him, she has remained independent to her detriment and, ultimately, that’s really what led to her downfall last year. She doesn’t have a Watson in her life, and she could probably benefit from one. Sherlock and Joan as a unit tend to be stronger than Moriarity as a solo.

The stars talked about how important it was to get ‘Lone Survivor’ right with The Hollywood Reporter…
But ahead of the film’s New York premiere Tuesday night, the stars and director Peter Berg told The Hollywood Reporter the most challenging part of making the movie was trying to do justice to the fallen service members and their families.
“All of these soldiers had moms and dads and brothers and sisters and widows,” Berg said on the red carpet. “And I knew that at one point when this film was done, I was going to be in a screening room with those families and the lights were going to come up and those family members were going to look me in the eye and they were going to let me know very clearly whether I got it right or not. So that was something that I carried with me everyday.”
Alexander Ludwig, who plays rookie Shane Patton, said he felt an “overbearing need” to get things right.
“There’s a huge weight on your shoulders when you’re telling a story that’s not only true but ended in a really horrible way,” he told THR. “I think the biggest challenge for me was really doing my best to make sure the Patton family was pleased with what I did and that everyone feels like we did justice to the movie.”
Recent news suggests that the georgious Russian God Danial Kozlovsky will be a new Vampire Academy photo!
I can’t wait! Totally fangirling right now!
I mean just imagine this gorgeous face on posters all over the world!
Dr Wes may be hot, but he turned the corner to evil when he turned the Vervain shower on Damon . . . he is now officially Dr Evil in my book!
But, the adorable Aussie who plays him is quite the opposite!
Check out what he had to say about us TVD fans (and more!) with The News Daily recently:
“OH MY GOD RICK COSNETT FAVOURITED MY TWEET!” one scream-types.
“Rick Cosnett tweeted to me! OMG I’m so happy!” Another happily proclaims.
Someone has even created a meme using his face. All this after the young actor has appeared in only one episode of US network the CW’s mega-hit The Vampire Diaries. When told this, Cosnett merely laughs.
“The fans have been so welcoming. It’s been overwhelming.”
Cast as mysterious newcomer Dr. Wes Maxfield on the US network’s popular teen drama, the young Aussie has felt very much “like a deer in the headlights” for the past couple of weeks.
Indeed, this sudden thrust into the limelight is undoubtedly quite a shock for someone who grew up on a farm in small-town Zimbabwe. Cosnett moved to Queensland with his family at age 17, living in Toowoomba before moving to Brisbane to study acting at the Queensland University of Technology. Acting seemed the natural career choice for someone who describes himself as “really passionate about the human condition” and Cosnett made the big move to the US in 2010. From there it was a blur of going “from acting class to auditions to the gym.”
Despite the monotony, the young thespian was by no means immune to the charms of the blockbuster capital of the world.
“During an audition you look out the window over the producer’s head and the Hollywood sign is staring you in the face. It’s surreal.”
Much of his first year in the States was spent onstage, starring in what he describes as a “very racy play” involving public nudity, something he clearly doesn’t have a problem with.
“I’m a very liberal person so I loved it. It kept me out of mischief.”
Like many aspiring actors, Cosnett quickly grew accustomed to the harsh reality of the industry when he booked a role on Ms. Education, an ABC Family sitcom pilot. With the director of Two and a Half Men at the helm and the voice of Homer Simpson, Dan Castellaneta, as his co-star, “we all thought the pilot would go,” he admits.
“They didn’t end up picking it up. You never know what’s going to happen.”
The same was true of the casting process of The Vampire Diaries. Cosnett had originally auditioned for The Originals, a spin-off series from the same creator, Julie Plec. After a long audition process he missed out on the role and was “pretty devastated.” Soon after, he learned that The Vampire Diaries was casting for a new male character and, re-energised, the upbeat actor decided he was “all in.” He sent an audition tape to the casting directors and waited an excruciating two weeks before finding out he had won the part. Whilst he was aware that The Vampire Diaries was a “big step up exposure-wise,” it really hit home when he started noticing the show’s billboards all over Sunset Boulevard.
Luckily, the greatest challenge so far for Cosnett has been perfecting the required American accent, which he maintains between takes to ensure that it becomes second nature. The fans have clearly embraced him, a phenomenon both heartwarming and bizarre given, as the actor himself acknowledges, he has only appeared on their screens for all of five minutes at the time of our interview.
This kind of intense fandom appears to be fairly typical of the show that propelled lead actors Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder to the level of superstardom that inspires throngs of screaming fans. Cosnett has nothing but respect and admiration for his celebrity costars, calling Dobrev “the sweetest, most wonderful girl” and laughing when talking of Somerhalder’s “hilarious” on-set antics. When asked if he’s ready for that amount of public scrutiny, Cosnett is politely dismissive.
“I don’t assume I’m going to get as much attention as them because they’ve been going for five years. I’m just starting out.”
Clearly, based on his Twitter page, he will have to readjust those expectations pretty quickly.
Provenance: Zimbabwe, followed by Queensland and Sydney
Big break: Cast as mysterious college professor Dr. Wes Maxfield on hit series The Vampire Diaries.
Crazy Hollywood moment: “Nothing I can say! The things you think about Hollywood are true.”
Dream director: Marc Forster of Monster’s Ball
Dream co-star: “Michael Fassbender. And I’m a huge Toni Collette fan. I haven’t met her. I’m waiting until one day she comes up to me. That could be a long way off, I’ll be waiting a while.”
On his critics: “I don’t have any haters. But they say you haven’t made it until you have haters, right?”
The only other thing I don’t like about Dr Evil . . . Rick doesn’t get to use his awesome Aussie accent!!!
Catch Rick in action TONIGHT in 5.9 “The Cell” at 8pm EST on the CW!
