Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Break Nazi Codes In 'The Imitation Game'

He plays an intelligent British man. Stop us if you've heard this one before. After having dabbled in Star Trek and The Hobbit, Benedict Cumberbatch has returned to more human pursuits. This time, he's playing renowned codebreaker Alan Turing, who uses his math skills to put those damn Nazis in their place during WWII. Keira Knightley will play friend Joan Clarke, and lots of other British actors you may or may not recognize, but certainly don't know by name, will be in it. The Imitation Game will also dive into some of the darker aspects of Turing's life, like his incarceration in the 1950's for being a homosexual, and his suicide shortly thereafter. Codebreaking!

Jon Stewart Tells Benedict Cumberbatch He Wants To Rip His Clothes Off

But, like, in a professional, journalistic way, I'm sure. Benedict Cumberbatch sure has been making the rounds recently to promote The Imitation Game. It seems you can't swing a dead cat without some story about Cumberbatch being charming as hell and imitating the Queen or turning toxic waste into roses or something. The guy is matched only by Chris Pratt in the "can do no wrong" category. So it's little surprise that Daily Show host Jon Stewart had a hard time controlling his urges when interviewing the British actor. In fact, Jon Stewart didn't just have a hard time controlling his urges, he ignored them completely, asking Ben to remove his clothes.


Benedict Cumberbatch Does A Wicked Jar-Jar Binks Impression

Why? Because he can, that's why. Big ups to fanboy (and especially fangirl) fave Benedict Cumberbatch, who, despite his upright British manner and role selection, seems to be something of a giant goofball. In this interview, with little prompting, Benedict, who calls himself a bit of a poseur when it comes to fanboy culture, offers up not one, but two killer impressions. The first, as mentioned in the title, is nobody's favorite Star Wars character, Jar-Jar Binks. The second, slightly more understandable impression, is Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Take a look and fall in love with Cumberbatch all over again.


Benedict Cumberbatch Said Smaug Motion Capture Suit Made Him Feel 'Like An Idiot'

Somewhere, Andy Serkis just collapsed to the ground. There's a price to pay for being in the adaptation of a Tolkien work. You have to appear very small, or have hairy feet, or...something. It's mostly downside, apart from the prestige. And the normally agreeable Benedict Cumberbatch admitted to Radio Times that playing Smaug in a motion capture suit, he looked like an "idiot," and a "penis." I agree with the first one, but don't really see the second one. Maybe he's seen some grey penises in body stockings with little ping pong balls attached. I can't speak to his experiences. Anyway, take a look at what went into making Smaug for The Hobbit film. Not only was it costly, but the producers made Benedict Cumberbatch feel like a penis.


Latest 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Trailer Focuses On Alice Eve In Underwear (And Reveals Benedict Cumberbatch's Character)

Plus, an Easter Egg! We've seen a few trailers at this point and heard all of the rumors but now, thanks to this UK trailer, we finally see the proof with our own eyes and ears. Alice Eve does indeed show up in skimpy underwear in Star Trek Into Darkness. Oh, and the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain is revealed at long last. Cumberbatch plays John Harrison, a top Starfleet agent who is now dedicated to f*cking up their sh*t. Against Starfleet's wishes, Chris Pine's Kirk vows to bring Harrison to justice. The young captain seems in over his head as his reckless pursuit of the terrorist puts his crew and loved ones in jeopardy. Now, back to Alice Eve in her underwear. The not-easily-distracted folks at TrekMovie noticed an URL hidden in the shot of Ms. Eve showing off her space panties which did not lead to more pictures of Eve sadly. Instead, it revealed the film's new international poster. How did I not notice that? Just think of all the coded messages I may have missed by oogling actresses in their underwear all these years?


George Clooney Imitates Tim Allen’s Neighbor In ‘The Descendants’ Trailer

Poor George. His daughters are impervious to his charms. George Clooney has played many varied roles throughout his career. He's played political figures, a fisherman, a fast-talking prison escapee, a nippled superhero, a frequent flyer, and he's fought off the attacks of killer tomatoes. Now he's headed into new territory under the tutelage of Alexander Payne: Stressed out dad. In The Descendants, Clooney's stuck actually having to raise his daughters after his wife goes and messes her shit up in a boating accident. Not cool, wife. Don't you know a guy like Clooney needs to be out there planning his next steps in his on-going prank war against Brad Pitt? If he lets his guard down for one minute, he's likely find his Bugatti Veyron parked beneath power lines in an area highly-trafficked by pigeons.


‘Midnight In Paris’ Trailer: Now It’s Owen Wilson’s Turn To Imitate Woody Allen

It was either him or Vince Vaughn. Woody Allen has done it again. The trailer for his latest, Midnight In Paris, has debuted and this may be his most ludicrous plot yet. In the film, Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams play a young, engaged couple spending time in Paris. Wilson's character develops a fondness for wandering alone around the City Of Lights. He then finds that he prefers to do that over spending time with Rachel McAdams. See what I mean? That's less believable than Sleeper.


'Game Of Thrones' Second Season Teaser

"You win or you die." Is this about Words With Friends? HBO had a surprise hit on their hands last year with Game of Thrones, presumably due to all the nudity and decapitations HBO is famous for providing its viewers. And they're doing the smart thing and not letting anybody see any beheadings for free, if this new teaser that just premiered is any indication. Still, you might be into it if you like the show. Enjoy, and try not to speak with a British accent for the rest of the day - unless you actually are British, of course.


Third ‘Game Of Thrones’ Trailer Hits HBO

The third teaser trailer for HBO's "Game of Thrones" premiered last night on HBO. Based on the books George R.R. Martin, the fantasy series will most likely fulfill every dork's wet dream (at least until The Hobbit hits theaters). The third teaser trailer for HBO's "Game of Thrones" premiered last night on HBO. Based on the books by George R.R. Martin, the fantasy series will most likely fulfill every dork's wet dream (at least until The Hobbit hits theaters). Considering the trailer featured the three B's of fantasy films (beards, blonds, and beheadings), I, myself, am not ashamed to say I was a little turned on by the whole thing, which is odd, considering the amount of radiation this laptop has pumped into my crotch. Thanks, HBO! (Deadline)
