Benedict Cumberbatch was on Good Morning America today presumably to promote The Fifth Estate. Julian Assange borrowed from Sinead O’Connor this week and wrote a hissy fit open letter to Cumberbatch about his portrayal. Thanks for the publicity, Julian. Don’t you know? Or does he know and that’s the point? Too heavy before a long weekend. Full Story

He’s played real life mathematicians (Stephen Hawking) and imaginary ones (in The Last Enemy), and Very Smart People real and imagined (Julian Assange and Sherlock Holmes), and now The Batch is filming The Imitation Game, a movie about mathematician Alan Turing and his efforts to code-break the Enigma Machine during World War II. Full Story

If 2011 was The Year of The Fassbender, then 2013 is The Year of The Batch. With a blockbuster (Star Trek Into Darkness), another installment of the popular TV show that made him (Sherlock), and a trio of Oscar-y projects that showcase his talents from period drama to modern leading man (12 Years a Slave, August: Osage County and The Fifth Estate), like him or not, you cannot deny this is Benedict Cumberbatch’s year. Full Story

The Fifth Estate opens TIFF a week tomorrow. Am kind of curious to see how many of Benedict Cumberbatch’s fans show up at Roy Thomson Hall that night. And what level of Twi-Hard they reach. Like will they be breaking into all the hotels in the vicinity? Will they offer up their babies to him to hold? (This happened with Brad Pitt a few years ago. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are shooting Sherlock in Cardiff, Wales. Sherlock evidently had his clothes stolen and is trying to escape in someone else’s. Leonardo DiCaprio? It’s like he’s acting out a scene from Leo’s true life, wearing second hand athletic gear and looking for a dumpster to jump into. Full Story

Sherlock’s return

It’s about three months until Sherlock returns on the BBC and/or we all pirate it—no use pretending any of us are actually going to wait till it airs on PBS in twenty-motherf*cking-fourteen—and we have our first teaser. It’s a totally uninformative glimpse of Sherlock playing peek-a-boo with all the main characters and I love it. Full Story

Sherlockiana

That’s an actual word—it’s the name given to the cottage industry that sprung up around Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes stories, of films and television shows and even other stories written by different people. Anything Sherlock Holmes-adjacent is part of Sherlockiana, which means Comic-Con now has a footnote in the Sherlock Holmes encyclopedia, as Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, co-creators and writers of the BBC’s Sherlock, as well as producer Sue Vertue, appeared at Comic-Con on Friday to discuss series three. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch is a Matt Damon fanboy

Who isn’t? Everyone loves Matt Damon. Speaking to Vulture about his Emmy nomination (for the HBO/BBC miniseries Parade’s End), Benedict Cumberbatch confessed he’s got a big ole man-crush on fellow nominee Matt Damon. He calls him “Matt”, imagines having a dinner party with him, and teases the journalist about passing along a message about what a big fan he is, which is pretty much what we all do with celebrities we really like, right? Fanboying all over Matt Damon is the most accessible Cumberbatch has been in ages. Full Story

Hello Kitty Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch is in Japan to promote Star Trek Into Darkness. As you can see, there was an enthusiastic crowd awaiting him there. What happens when a Hello Kitty is also a Cumberbatch Twi-Hard? Is it like combining Mariah Carey and a Belieber into one body? Someone needs to Frankenstein that for me. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch was in Greece yesterday to promote Sherlock. He looks hot. As in temperature. In other Cumberbatch news, a still of him in Twelve Years A Slave, Steve McQueen’s upcoming film starring Chiwetel Ejiofor about a free man tricked into slavery was released yesterday. Michael Fassbender plays an evil plantation owner. Full Story

I’ve noticed it before, haven’t you? That Benedict Cumberbatch is patently embarrassed by the name his fan collective has—as he is quick to point out—bestowed upon themselves? He doesn’t even like to say it. Start watching/reading Cumberbatch’s interviews en masse, as I have done over the last week, and it comes up a lot. Full Story

That was the most excellent term Simon Pegg coined to describe the shivery feeling people get around Benedict Cumberbatch. It came up in this terrible interview, which is worth a watch for how thoroughly Pegg dominates it and how quick he is off the cuff. Full Story

The world premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness (god, that TITLE) was held in London last night and Benedict Cumberbatch showed up in a sharp suit with his long, dark Sherlock hair. This is my favorite Batch—tall, alien, bespoke. Reviews of Darkness are rolling out and, as to be expected, everyone is singling out Cumberbatch and his performance, with a lot of people declaring it the push over the top. Full Story
