Just wrapped up the Sherlock episode from last night.
Star Trek 2 has finally bagged itself a villain, and we’re delighted to reveal that it’s none other than Sherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch!
For months it had seemed as though Benicio Del Toro would be cast in J.J. Abrams’ sequel, but the Puerto Rican actor reportedly passed on the opportunity over a pay dispute…
I have very strong feelings about this but I’m not sure exactly what they are. Just that there are feelings. And I’m having them.
That’s a reasonable time frame! Only a few weeks after UK viewing.
Even though I’ve already seen it and have it forever, I still PVR’d and will watch it again later.
I had quite the shitty day at work today and without boring you with details I will just say that re-watching Sherlock is really going to help. Plus the booze. And the carby, carb, carb dinner.
Cumberbitches: Women Who Love Benedict Cumberbatch
“Throw your boobs in the air if you want some cumberlovin.”
— Cumberbitches, October 8, 2010
Do any of those words make sense to you? They might, if you’re among the thousands of members of “the most glorious and elusive society“ devoted to the appreciation of the “high cheekboned, blue eyed sexbomb” that is Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch, star of the BBC series Sherlock. That “society” is the legion of inordinately dedicated fans of Cumberbatch, a group who call themselves “Cumberbitches” — launching a Twitter profile, Facebook page, Pinterest handle, and, yes, countless Tumblrs, in honor of their beloved star.
Sorry, Cumberbitches — the start of production on the third cycle of this detective drama has been moved from January to March. Sources say the shift was necessary to accommodate the busy schedules of the show’s breakout stars, Benedict Cumberbatch (who’s filming Star Trek 2) and Martin Freeman (starring in The Hobbit).
Well, this is a bit upsetting.
(Oh, you want to know the U.S. premiere date? It’s January 19.)
Fingers crossed for a late November/early December UK release.
