Benedict Not-Posh

Last August, in advance of the HBO drama Parade’s End, Benedict Cumberbatch gave some interviews in which he talked about his background, the poshness thereof, and the relative annoyingness of Cumberbatch talking about it versus other people talking about it (we get annoyed when he talks about, he gets annoyed when we talk about it). Full Story

Looking good in that overcoat

There. I said something nice about re: appearance and Benedict Cumberbatch. He does wear an overcoat very well. Here he is with Martin Freeman in London working on Sherlock. Timely too because this morning I read a headline on Deadline with the following title: Sherlock Producer Pleads With Fans To Keep London Filming Locations Secret I guess the Sherlock faithful are going Twi-Hard on the set and they’re now worried about plot spoilers. Full Story

I’ve not yet started watching Parade’s End yet. I know! F-cking award season, right? But my travel slows down in a week or so and in between having a nervous breakdown over my deadlines, Parade’s End will be my jam, I promise, and I will probably love it, which will make me hate Downton Abbey even more, and I do really love to hate Downton Abbey. Full Story

After the fright wig situation Benedict Cumberbatch sported while filming the Julian Assange biopic The Fifth Estate just a couple months ago, he is back now the way I prefer him—with Sherlock Holmes’ longer, darker hair. This is Cumberbatch at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards in London, doing a lot to erase the horrors of the Assange look from my mind. Full Story

Can’t Unsee: Benedict Cumberbatch edition

In a piece of fantastical timing, I had no sooner defended my crush on Benedict Cumberbatch (again), than Dreamworks released the first still from The Fifth Estate, showing Cumberbatch in character as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Cannot unsee. Look, if Benedict Cumberbatch is not your flavor, I get it. Full Story

I have heard the name for years. I’ve seen the articles and whatnot. I knew he existed, but I never really paid attention until now, you know? I finally sort of really connected the face to the name for good. I feel like someone is f-cking with me. Like is this a big joke? Did you all get together just to punk me in this particular way? Guys, come on. Full Story

Star Trek Into Benedict Cumberbatch

Because the first teaser for Star Trek Into Darkness is all about The Batch. As I mentioned earlier this week, we don’t know a lot about the plot or new characters in Star Trek 2. This teaser does little to shed light on either of those things. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch Treks into Darkness

I cannot stop making fun of the Star Trek 2 title, Star Trek Into Darkness. It sounds like an Annie Lennox song. “When the world ends/And hope is lost/We will rise again/Star Trek Into Darkness/Yeah/Star Trek Into Darkness”. In my head, it’s set to an 80s synth beat, at least as good as the Skyfall theme. Full Story

Atonement. Remember how gross Benedict Cumberbatch was in Atonement? It’s a testament to his skill as an actor but I can’t help but hold it against him anyway. Poor Robbie took the fall for Paul’s underage creeping! Can you be TOO good at your job? Atonement was the second time James McAvoy and Cumberbatch worked together, having previously co-starred in Starter For Ten which I quite liked and think is underrated though I can’t remember Bendy in it at all. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch goes for Oscar as the “fifth Beatle”

THR is reporting that Benedict Cumberbatch has signed on to play Brian Epstein, the late Beatles manager widely considered to be responsible for taking the band to superstardom, “the man who threw the biggest party of the 1960’s, but ultimately forgot to invite himself”. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch wins knives

Sherlock was honoured by the Crime Thriller Awards last night in London. Here’s Benedict Cumberbatch at the event. He won Best Actor. They hand out knives encased in glass instead of trophies. I have to ask my ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, to be sure but I feel like that would be bad luck, giving out knives meant as congratulations and especially putting them up around your home. Full Story
