Things We Saw Today: Benedict Cumberbatch Playing Professor Snape


If you’re a Benedict Cumberbatch fan, you probably already know he does a mean Alan Rickman impression. Well, the creators of The Simpsons have decided to utilize that talent for this Sunday’s Valentine’s-themed episode. Not only does he voice Severus Snape, he also does the Prime Minister. Unfortunately, the video is not embeddable, watch a clip over at Entertainment Weekly

  • The Frisky writes, “With no apparent sense of irony at all, the faith site Beliefnet allegedly hired a guest blogger who writes about feminist issues … and then told her she couldn’t use the word “feminist” anywhere in any of her blog posts.” Umm…
  • According to a new poll, Hillary Clinton is the most popular politician in America. In fact, she had 61% of the vote compared to President Obama’s 51%. (via Death and Taxes Mag)

Vulture has a slideshow of the real-life people who modeled for the characters on Archer. I could have sworn Lana was just Aisha Tyler. In other Archer news, apparently celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is going to be making a guest appearance.

Canada, you’re awesome. The Canadian Mint is releasing another glow-in-the-dark dinosaur coin. (via Geekologie)

  • Today is Seth Green’s birthday. Check out the amazing blast from the past Bonnie Burton posted on Twitter.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if the dinosaur on the one side has a glow-in-the-dark skeleton, the Queen on the other side should have a glow-in-the-dark skull.

    Blasphemy. There can only be one true Snape.
