I'm kind of Cumberbatched out and it's got me exercising my "don't like it, don't watch it" privileges on shows and films I might otherwise have watched.

He's certainly blown up recently, but he's also incredibly versatile, so it works.
 
2013-10-29 04:59:06 PM  
He kind of looks like a male with that goatee.

Holy crap that dude is weird looking.

For those of you who want to see (well, hear) a very different style of Cumberbatch, try listening to BBC Radio's sitcom "Cabin Pressure", in which he plays a lead role.

It is absolutely hilarious.

Never noticed till I watched Star Trek on my Iphone but he moves his whole body with every single word he says.

that's weird

What's he up to?

Continuing to be a complete and utter DELIGHT, I would imagine.

They're doing motion capture for Smaug? That seems like they're just burning money for the fun of it.

I really would like to see him as Percy Fawcett, a character who's not as well known as he should be.  Not so certain about him playing Turing, as it seems like it would be too close to his Stephen Hawking.

And I really hope he doesn't fall into the trap of playing a Bond villain; that never seems to turn out well for first-rate actors. What would be interesting is casting him as an MI-6 agent, who has to work with (or at least in parallel to) 007.
 
2013-10-29 08:06:52 PM  
He is so very odd looking. But I do enjoy his acting. He played a scumbag wonderfully in "Atonement".

I think pretty much all great actors are weird-looking.  The good-looking people we think of as "great" actors are generally average at best and really make their living as movie stars, working the narrow tracts of their abilities.

Off the top of my head, Daniel Day-Lewis is an exception to that rule. And Bryan Cranston (swoon) but yes, I can generally agree. The great actors I think of, Hopkins, Hackman, Hoffman....(heh, sounds like a law firm) are not traditionally handsome, but striking because of their intensity. Alec Baldwin can bring it and he is a good looking guy. Same can be said for Mel Gibson. Cumberbatch is indeed intriguing and from some interviews I have seen seems like a decent guy who has a self deprecating sense of humor. He likened himself to Sid from Ice Age. That kind of adds to the appeal to me, I guess. If I see his name on the marquee I will watch.

David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser felt it back in '77.  If they can be obscure again, so can Cummerman.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith have the same physical quirk in that they can look handsome and/or sexy in one scene, then wierd even ugly in the next scene.  Sometimes it happens in moments within the same scene, which is one of the reasons I find them so appealing.

He looks nothing like Turing, but I'm still ridiculously excited for the Turing movie. Being a good computer nerd, I've been ranting and raving for years about how much of a crying shame it is that Alan Turing isn't a household name. That's not going to be a problem any more when you've got Benedict Cumberbatch playing Turing in a big budget Oscar bait biopic.

More "Cabin Pressure". I swear, people, listen to more radio plays. You'll never look back.

I had no idea that Cummerbund Bandersnatch was an atheist or even a marine mammal.

And I must add, or fail as a smartass, that I was having fun with CB's name back when it was M. Night Sha-na-na Rama Lama Ding-Dong.

Ha! Beat the web (I think).

Jolie Laid

? I think I saw that headline on a tabloid at the supermarket the last time I was in the store.

But I don't believe a word of it. Angelina Jolie has never been laid. All her kids are of different colours, races, nationalities, etc. She's the United Benetton of Virgin Mothers.

I would make it a comedy.

I saw some pics of him doing the capture the other day, I'd say you're correct.
