  4. Smaug Announces Endorsement for Rand Paul 2016 In Exclusive Colbert Report Interview

    Never laugh at a live dragon, mothaf***a.

    Among other things, Smaug also believes that his negative portrayal in the media is due to a liberal Hollywood bias, calls out the dragon triplets from Game of Thrones, invokes the Stand Your Ground law while defending his attempted murder of Bilbo Baggins, corrects Colbert's pronunciation of his name, and calls Benedict Cumberbatch a hack. What a most specially greedy, strong and wicked worm.

  6. [UPDATED] Wondering Who Did the Voiceover Work for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer?

    My Paaaalpatiiiiiiine!

    On first inspection, the voice in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer sounded a great deal like Benedict Cumberbatch (who still refuses to talk about Star Wars) to me. Names like Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow were also being tossed into the ring. Over the weekend, movie critics were saying they had confirmation of Serkis but weren't even giving vague sources so I remained skeptical. But Good Morning America has claimed it definitively as an exclusive.

  7. Review: Shallow Imitation Game Lacks Convincing Thesis and Purpose

    The Benedict Cumberbatch Show, for better or worse.

    The biopic banner covers every inch of The Imitation Game, ultimately to the point that the film is more concerned with the prestige that comes with the true story/biopic genre than it is with telling a compelling story of Alan Turing’s accomplishments and his tragic downfall.

  9. Actual Dragon-Man Benedict Cumberbatch Smaugs Around On The Floor In The Hobbit‘s DVD Extras

    "Cumberbatch Cumberbatch DRAGON PELVIS LUNGE Cumberbatch Cumberbatch."

    Delivering quality voice work while capturing a dragon's snakey physicality can't be easy (especially without other actors or sets to work off of), but it seems Cumbersmaug handled filming like a champ. A faintly ridiculous, mildly terrifying champ.

  19. Benedict Cumberbatch Looks Like He’s About to Leap Out Of My Computer Screen and Kill Me

    Turn that frown upside down, Richard III!

    Benny, I... I didn't mean it when I said you're being cast in so many things and talked about so much that I'm maybe getting a little fatigued of your presence. I swear. And I've never used the Benedict Cumberbatch Name Generator; I don't even know what that is! Stop looking at me like that.

  20. This Just In: Benedict Cumberbatch Can’t Say the Word “Penguin” [VIDEO]

    Peengwons. Porkwerns. Poongies?

    Remember that SNL sketch from the '90s where Charlton Heston clammed up (pun intended) during the audiobook for Madonna' Sex and kept saying "vagina" instead of... you know, the actual word on the page? I imagine the mood was similar during the ADR sessions for the 2009 BBC nature documentary South Pacific, in which Benedict Cumberbatch was forced to endure the horror that is the word "penguins." Such a brave man.
