Things We Saw Today: Benedict Cumberbatch Will Be On Sesame Street


Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch will be on Sesame Street.  No word on exactly when, though. Let’s count the ways we’re excited for this! (Via PBS)

  • Looking for a way to focus on the stuff you love about comics? This “31 Days of Comics” thing looks like it’s worth a try. (via Comics Should Be Good)
  • This adorable book will teach your kids how to code.  The Kickstarter campaign is going ridiculously well but who doesn’t want to support something that awesome? (via NerdApproved)

Empire has some new stills from X-Men: Days of Future Past including this one of Jennifer Lawrence looking murderous as Mystique. There’s also a nice still of Hugh Jackman looking insanely muscley.

  • The actual women that Portlandia‘s feminist bookstore women are based on will be livetweeting the Super Bowl at the @IFCPortlandia Twitter account. Could be hilarious or interesting or something else entirely. (via IFC)
  • This gorgeous tee by graphic designer Brandon Meier won a The Last of Us design contest over at We Love Fine.

    That photo of Jackman is absolutely gross. IMHO.

  • Ashe

    Uh, am I the only one who thinks Jennifer Lawrence looks completely non-threatening? It’s a babyfaced teenager’s Halloween costume coupled with her usual deadpan delivery. Blech.

    That Kickstarter is AWESOME. Just look at how much it made, with twenty days to go!

    You think you are learning. You are not. (whisper, whisper) What? Oh, apparently you are.

    It’s been hard for me to enjoy Cumberbatch after listening to The Nerdist’s podcast featuring Brent Spiner. Spiner recalls an incident where Cumberbatch insults Star Trek to Spiner and Stewart’s faces. Bleh,

  • IndianSuburb

    Insults “Star Trek”? Goodness he didn’t. Spiner was even laughing about it and Stewart has been associate with Cumberbatch pre-Sherlock because of West End. He was just worried if a role in a blockbuster would be a big impact in his planned career path (it will) as he was a simply television/theatre actor and that is new territory altogether.

    “Dammit, Bennie, that Hiddleston’s beating you in the polls again! Get out there and hug some bloody muppets!”

  • Hinoema

    RE: Ruby- I literally want to buy all the books. A girl character and coding? I was literally doing the bouncy arm wavey smiley at my computer. I don’t care if I just lost my job, I’m sending them money.

  • Saraquill

    I still found it quite rude of Cumberbatch.

  • Mag14

    Oh, yeah, a pathetic TH fan losing her face on the web again. Anything new?

    VEINS!!!

    I agree, somewhat, though to me it feels like her deadpan look may be at least partially a make-up issue? There isn’t much depth to the blue which is giving her a sort of flat look to begin with, and the stick on bits (scales? What do we even call those?) may also be interfering with her ability to move her eyebrows into a more threatening position.

    That said, I don’t know a lot about Jennifer Lawrence… is she known for being somewhat deadpan?

  • Hinoema

    Be nice. I think it’s funny the way those two diss each other. No need to get all YouTube about it.

  • Ashe

    That could definitely be a factor. Heavy make-up isn’t known for being expressive.

    I’ve seen a few of her movies and she seems to float in the comfortable area of ‘can genuinely emote at times but isn’t it so much trendier to deliver lines with flat dry snark?’. It’s starting to feel like I’m watching a one-trick pony who receives a little too much praise.

    Exactly the demand I made.
    He’ll almost certainly do Word Of The Day, but I long for the days when guest stars got some real scenes to play, like Jeff Goldblum playing Bob’s archaeologist brother, Minneapolis Smith.
