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)?
These days Benedict Cumberbatch is celebrating landing the role of the villain in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel, but getting there wasn't so easy. His audition was more than a little unusual, and when Abrams finally offered him the part, Cumberbatch wasn't even sure what he was saying.
Still holding on to the possibility that Benedict Cumberbatch—the man with the most delicious name ever—could play the villainous Master in the 50th Anniversary special of Doctor Who? Showrunner Steven Moffat recently decided to address those rumors once and for all. Kinda.
Benedict Cumberbatch gets all the cool acting gigs these days. He's the enemy in Star Trek 2, Sherlock Holmes on the BBC, and heck—he even gets to play a dragon in The Hobbit later this year.
As excited as we are at the prospect of Sherlock, Star Trek 2 and The Hobbit actor Benedict Cumberbatch playing The Master for Who's 50th Anniversary season/celebration/ritual sacrifice, the current Doctor knows absolutely nothing about it.
After the first leaked Star Trek 2 pics, here comes the first leaked video—which shows the on-set scuffle between Zachary Quinto's Spock and Benedict Cumberbatch's as-of-yet-still-unnamed villain. Kapow!
Benedict Cumberbatch is in a heap of trouble. The Star Trek newbie, who plays the villain in the sequel, is on the wrong side of Starfleet. Because in two new photos, the actor is catching a serious beat down from the one and only, Mr. Spock.
The road sure isn't smooth for CBS' upcoming drama series Elementary. First, the BBC made it clear that they will sue the network if its new show shares too many similarities with the Beeb's awesome Sherlock, and now a producer is blasting the casting choice of Johnny Lee Miller as the other modern Sherlock Holmes.
While we're still waiting with bated breath to know exactly just who-in-the-Universe Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek 2 (or XII, if you prefer), the Sherlock actor has at least revealed some tantalizing tidbits about his mysterious character.
Now that we're over the initial thrill of learning that Benedict Cumberbatch has landed a role in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel, it's time to start wondering what exactly he'll be doing in the flick. When the news came down, we heard Cumberbatch was the flick's villain, but while he's not denying it, Abrams himself won't admit that the Sherlock star is actually Trek 2's baddie.
