Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch on Elementary Criticism: I Was Misquoted!

Benedict Cumberbatch has denied criticizing Jonny Lee Miller for his new role on CBS' Elementary.

"I am both bemused and upset at this misquote," the Sherlock star explained in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "I never said that Johnny took the job for the paycheck nor did I ask him not to do it. What I said is I would have preferred not to be in the situation where we will again be compared because we are friends. I know for a fact his motivations were to do with the quality of the script and the challenges of this exceptional role."
