Benedict Cumberbatch Is Like An Animal Stalking Its Prey

If you replace the plains of Africa with Hollywood and Highland and think of U2 as a herd of zebras. )

I wish Benedict Cumberbatch would just get in my vagina already.

TalksTooMuch said...

I really WANT to dig Cumberbatch, but I have only seen him in the really bad Star Trek movie and all I could think was "where's the feathered grey air and bubble vest???". No Ricardo Montalban he.

Tina Mallette said...

You have to see Cumberbatch in a real movie, try Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

I love his photobombing. That boy is not jaded yet.

Tina Mallette said...

He is also great in a film with Tom Hardy, called Stuart A Life Lived Backwards but hard to find, it was made for UK TV.

TalksTooMuch said...

I am trying! But all I see is someone really in love with his own cleverness. I will reserve judgement until I see that movie!

Snapdragon said...

@TTM, give Sherlock a try. Totally.

Candyland said...

TTM - I watched Sherlock and quickly became a Cumbergroupie. I just can't get enough of him or his antics! Not sure I'd feel the same, if I had only seen Star Trek or the Fifth Estate.

Candyland said...

Do it, TTM, do it! Come to the dark side with all of the Cumberlovers!

MISCH said...

He seems to have a good sense of humor, his both parents are actors and he's had a fantastic education…what you see might just be who he is…

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM, one word: SHERLOCK.

I don't find him conventionally attractive but put him and Martin Freeman together and ---

Uh, what was I saying?

(I've not seen him in anything else except his glorious photobombs.)

TalksTooMuch said...

Okay, I will check it oot, thanks, ladies!

I have an irrational love of all things Montalban, so that probably skewed everything. Plus I was distracted by the sweaty coke-bloat that was Chris Pine, acting solely with his eyebrows. And I fell asleep.

Seven of Eleven said...

Oh, doll, I saw the first Star Trek reboot and only stayed awake for Zachary Quinto and my man Simon Pegg. Chris Pine just bores me to tears.

Snapdragon said...

And FWIW I looooved this video. The DETERMINATION with which he gets over there and JUMPS... I was literally LOLing.

@Seven, TOTALLY.

Attentionwhore!

WritergirlinLa said...

He makes me smile!

Guildish said...

You're missing a truly great performance/mini-series if you've never seen Cumberbatch in The Last Enemy.

loopymommy said...

Sherlock is perfection. I didn't even realize he was Smaug (yet another Cumberbatch/Freeman pairing)

I have a friend who curates a "Daily Dose of BC" newsletter. She's sick this week, so I'm going through withdrawal. In interviews, he seems so self-effacing. LOVE him.

BC is going to be in Minneapolis for the Mpls ComicCon. I didn't even know we had one. A bunch of other celebs that I forgot about will be here too. May 2-4.

FlirtyChick74 said...

Actually he will be there on May 3rd

Violet said...

There is nothing I tell you, absolutely nothing, not to love about Benedict.

Ray Nicolet said...

YUP!

Thats an amazing movie. Oldman and Firth are in it!

Ray Nicolet said...

He was also good in Atonement which should be required viewing for all.

loopymommy said...

TTM, to me, BC always looked like one of the aliens from "Close Encounters...." Then he opened his mouth. I'm a sucker for a deep, resonant voice.

loopymommy said...

That movie was all Quinto for me. He carried that movie. He carried "Heroes." He also carried "So NoTORIous." (No judgment, please.) ;)

Seven, did you see "The World's End?"

Marian said...

He hasn't been confirmed for the Minneapolis con yet, but I sure hope he shows up for the Sherlocked cons that are supposed to be coming this year

@Guildish and @Ray, I will be adding them to my "Must See" list. Thanks!!! :)

Seven of Eleven said...

@loopy, yes! I laughed so hard! SO & I are saving the re-watch for our long weekend where we can marathon all three movies. Shaun of the Dead will probably always be my favorite because it was the first, Hot Fuzz killed me, and World's End, I could not stop laughing! Except... now it's over. {sob}

Hazeldazel said...

Omg yes! He is at his finest in Sherlock. So sooo fine

Hazeldazel said...

Omg yes! He is at his finest in Sherlock. So sooo fine

loopymommy said...

@Seven, I totally agree about "Shaun." How awesome was the backyard record scene? I love him and Nick Frost together. "Hot Fuzz" was great as well and I loved Steve Merchant in it (for the three minutes he was there). I'm hoping the Pegg/Frost collaborations are not going to end just because the trilogy is finished.

Turkish Taffy said...

I've only seen him in "12 Years", but it was enough to win me over. He is also very intelligent and well-spoken, and comes off well in interviews.

canadachick said...

did you see Ellens backstage video where she's trying to get to the stage dressed as Glenda the good witch and he's in the way saying :i feel like i'm being attacked by a giant queen......and she says oh like its the first time ZING

Sherry said...

Caraface could not have opened this discussion any better. You win sweetie, you win!

Marina Francisco said...

BC's mother Wanda Ventham was a British Blonde Bombshell (BBB) in the 60's. You'd never know it to look at him.
