Stealth promotion for Fifth Estate, maybe?

I'd do more than fan girl, if you know what I mean.

Couldn't he just blame Mycroft?

Everything he does just makes me love him that much more.

What I take away from this is that they're finally farking filming more Sherlock!  Finally!

Is this man the last Doctor Who?

Yup. To be broadcast late 2013 or early 2014.  2014 is more likely as Moffatt will be wrapped up with the Doctor Who 50th and Mark Gatiss has his movie about the origins of Doctor Who to promote.

I'm having trouble parsing the headline, so I go to RTFA.

TFA starts, "Noe there's a thing."

WTF is 'noe'?

No, but he will be in the next season of Game of Thrones.

They already shot the first two episodes for the season back in the spring, and this is the third episode that's shooting now. I'd guess that everything is still on schedule for the winter release.

yeah, PBS is rebroadcasting ssn1 and 2 to lead into 3.  they do it with Downton and other of their popular imports.  it should be this winter.

I don't get what it is about this foppish British guy that everyone is jizzing over, especially choosing him to play Khan. I mean WTF is that?

Know how I know you've never watched "Sherlock"?

Anyway, yes, he did have the political messages, but he also sang Happy Birthday to one of the HUNDREDS of fans there:

He's a genuinely nice guy.

This.

I was a fan of his use of the paparazzi with his Egypt message, but to hold up the signs while doing interviews is stupid, even if his points are valid.

You sir, are a git.

Say what you want about Star Trek Into Darkness...but he made that movie.  It's worth putting up with all the other stuff ("BS" or no "BS") to see Cumberbatch go.
 
2013-08-21 07:36:57 PM  
Well, that's unfortunate.
 
2013-08-21 07:37:24 PM  
Looking foreward to hearing him do the voice of Smaug.

But considering the character he played, there was no way he could possibly match what had been portrayed before.

Right, the foppish English guy playing the bloodthirsty East Indian dictator, that totally worked.

JJ took the perfect actor for the recreation of "Where No Man Has Gone Before", and turned him into Khan.  Cumberbatch was meant to be "Gary Mitchell".  J.J. Abrams, a visionless prick, sucked the Marrow from Gene Rodenberry's corpse to make that movie... So naturally give him Star Wars, as if Lucas did not drain the soul from that one enough....

Plenty of people from India are white. That will only increase in the future.

And the first guy who played Khan was Mexican.

Welcome to a Sherlock fans life. It's between that and "WTF Elementary? WHY YOU STEAL?!"

Although, if what I've heard about Moriarty is true, it's fairly brilliant.

They're almost done filming series 3.  Only a few more months until 3 whole new episodes...then years of waiting again.

Interestingly, a lot of Indians (As well as Persians) play Hispanic roles these days.

No one would have paid the incident any attention if he just had a Twitter, subs.

Publicist, a few minutes prior: "Seriously, if you're going to pull that political stunt, you've got to find a positive act to allow people to make excuses..."

Yeah but at least he was somewhat ethnic and imposing. I mean what, they couldn't get Hugh Grant?
