We knew Peter Jackson's now-trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit would feature the famed dragon Smaug, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, but what we didn't know is when we might meet him. Now it seems Cumberbatch may have let Jackson's scheme slip.
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has opened up about one of the two roles he'll get to play in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit—and his description of that role is absolutely hilarious.
Ever since CBS announced it was doing its own take on a modern Sherlock Holmes with its series Elementary, there's been a lot of hoopla about the project; especially from Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat and producer Sue Vertue. But there's one very important person who's kept mum on the subject, until now.
Okay, this is getting ridiculous. First, Karl Urban says Gary Mitchell IS the villain in Star Trek 2. Now one of the film's writers, Roberto Orci, says he's NOT. Which man is lying?
While at San Diego Comic-Con to promote his upcoming (and according to those who've seen it mind-blowing) Dredd film, Karl Urban tried to explain away his recent Star Trek 2 villain reveal snafu of earlier this week—and then proceeded to make another thrilling reveal.
Considering that Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch may not be playing Khan Noonien Singh on J.J. Abrams' Star Trek 2 (XII) after all, the question is: Which villain is the British actor playing in the highly anticipated film? Well, fellow Trek actor Karl Urban may have just let slip the motherload of reveals during a Dredd press junket. Oops!
Khan-or-not-Khan, whomever Benedict Cumberbatch's villain is on the upcoming Star Trek sequel, he'll have a deep impact on James T. Kirk's growth as Captain of the Enterprise—and that's what a great baddie does, right? And so says Kirk himself, actor Chris Pine.
So is Benedict Cumberbatch playing Khan or not in the upcoming Star Trek 2? In yet another twist to the whole Khan-not-Khan saga, actor Simon Pegg, who plays the U.S.S. Enterprise's chief engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, says he's NOT. And he's really annoyed with you about it.
It seems like the more we learn, the less it all seems to make sense. Star Trek 2 star Benedict Cumberbatch recently tried to answer a few basic Trek questions, but came off seemingly clueless about even the most basic tenants of Trek. Or is he?
After months of endless speculation we finally know which super baddie British actor Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek sequel. Are you guys ready for some major squeeing (or some cursing)?
