Benedict Cumberbatch and Jimmy Fallon played a game of Mad Libs on The Tonight Show yesterday and turned it into a play. A play that took place in a NYC police station’s interrogation room with Doctor Strange as the cop and the NBC late night host as the criminal. But there was nothing criminal about this bit. Well there is one thing, how much of crime it is to laugh this hard!
I love Benedict Cumberbatch like the next the person, but his singing not so much. Sherlock joined David Gilmour on stage yesterday at London’s Royal Albert Hall to sing Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb and that is exactly how I felt after hearing it. His vocals are elementary, my dear Watson, and thankfully his acting is not.
Now having said that, it was still a pleasure seeing him rock out!
Do you think his performance hit the wall?
Marvel released the first trailer for Doctor Strange and it feels like a cross between The Matrix and Inception to me. While those are not my type of movies, a lot of people love them. Are you one of them and will you be there to see it on November 4th?
Many of us can agree that Benedict Cumberbatch is yummy, and now he literally is. That’s because UKTV Play, a new drama channel, created an 88lbs life-size chocolate version of Sherlock Holmes to promote the launch of their network. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 2,000 people were asked who is Britain’s Dishiest Dramatic Actor and he beat out David Tennant, Sean Bean and Damian Lewis for title. Out of that group, I say they were correct.
So how hard was it to make the smooth actor become smooth chocolate? It took 8 people, 250 hours to mold the 500 melted Belgium chocolate bars into the delicious man that he is.
The delectable statute will be displayed tomorrow. No word who gets to eat him, but I would love to take a bite out of that! That is if he spends more time melting hearts instead of just melting.
One last thing that photo is all types of creepy!
Blake Shelton was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of The Whisper Challenge. Basically, one guy wore head phones with blaring music as the other one read him a phrase that he had to guess. The Voice coach got Benedict Cumberbatch and even though he didn’t think he said it correctly, he did. Then after the NBC late night host got it, Shelton said, “That doesn’t even mean anything.” Then when it was explained to him that Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar, he was like, “Who? That’s a person?…I’ve never even heard of that.” Where is Watson when you need him?
How has the singer never heard of Benedict Cumberbatch? I guess that coaching on The Voice, recording new music and touring, there isn’t any time left for him to do anything else.
You know what, now that I think about it. Since Shelton doesn’t even know who Cumberbatch is, I think it would be fun if the Oscars got him to present. Imagine how bad he would screw up the names of the people he doesn’t know, which is probably almost of the nominees. Imagine if David Oyelowo got nominated and he had to try to say that name?
