Is Jared Harris Sherlock’s Moriarty?

Looks like Guy Ritchie has found his Moriarty for Sherlock Holmes 2.

After names like Brad Pitt and Daniel Day Lewis were bandied about for Sherlock's ultimate nemesis, Latino Review are reporting that the role has gone to British actor Jared Harris.

Harris, son of acting legend Richard, is currently appearing in Mad Men (as pictured above), following roles in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Extraordinary Measures.

He's the latest cast member to be revealed, following Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace in her first Hollywood role. Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law return as Holmes and Watson in Ritchie'a sequel, due out December 2011.
