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

"Cumberbatch Cumberbatch DRAGON PELVIS LUNGE Cumberbatch Cumberbatch."

Recommended Videos

I’ve never really considered the motion capture work that must have gone into Benedict Cumberbatch’s role in The Hobbit, but this clip from The Desolation of Smaug DVD is a reminder of the part’s demands. 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.
