Hello - since you collect interviews … Here is the translation to the Tudou Chinese interview’s narration from yesterday:
In 2010, a curly headed, morose, highly intelligent great detective grabbed the world’s attention. He is the modern Sherlock played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Following the popularity of the show, BC was suddenly popular, and became British pop culture’s new calling card.
Lovely new pics of Benedicts from the LA Times!
…Cumberbatch said he tries to trip up expectations in “the politest ways” when choosing roles. “Into Darkness” certainly sees him wearing the mantle of action antihero more overtly than ever before, though it’s the sequences in which he attempts to manipulate Kirk and Spock with his cool intellect and seductive baritone that perhaps most directly capitalize on the actor’s signature skill set…
Those lens flares!
A lot of praise for Benedict.
“He’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) literally one of the best actors I’ve ever seen.”
- JJ Abrams
You know you’ve made it when you show up in Entertainment Weekly & People in the same day. Good on you, Mr. Cumberbatch.
How wonderful to see an interview that attempts to get to know him personally and appreciates showcasing his exemplary body of work.
Aside from this lovely (inside back) page, the current edition (#1260; May 24, 2013) of Entertainment Weekly has a review of “Star Trek Into Darkness” starting on Page 62. Fair warning, if you haven’t yet seen the movie: While Owen Gleiberman gives STID an A, his review is not spoiler-free.
