Ralph Fiennes And Hugh Laurie Join Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly’s HOLMES AND WATSON

This headline has too many names in it.

According to a new report over at THR, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly's Sherlock Holmes riff, Holmes And Watson, is getting two more powerhouse performers: Ralph Fiennes and Hugh Laurie.

There's no telling who the pair might be playing in the film, but The Hollywood Reporter offers up this note:

Character details are being kept locked up in the basement of 221B Baker St., but sources say Fiennes and Laurie will slip on the shoes of two beloved characters from the Holmes oeuvre.

Hm. My initial response to this news was to suspect that Laurie and Fiennes will eventually be revealed as the film's "real" Holmes and Watson, but maybe I'm wrong. Assuming that THR's suggestion is correct, who do you think these two might be playing?
