David Arquette is set to star in late Canadian playwright Greg Kramer's production of "Sherlock Holmes" in Toronto.
Starvox Entertainment says the "Scream" star will play the title role in the show, which will preview in Los Angeles before premiering at Toronto's Ed Mirvish Theatre from Oct. 27-Nov. 8.
It will then go on a multi-city U.S. tour, with stops including Washington and Chicago. The award-winning play is an original adaptation inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tales.
It premiered at The Segal Centre in Montreal in 2013 under the direction of Andrew Shaver, who is behind this latest remount.
The nine-person cast also includes Michael Trevino of "The Vampire Diaries" as Dr. John Watson.
"I am beyond excited to play one of the most loved characters in all literature, stage and screen," Arquette said in a statement. "Some may think I'm an odd choice. I am. I'm odd but thankfully so is he."
