About That Time Benedict Cumberbatch Used A Stuffed Monkey To Spoil The Next Season Of "Sherlock"

By Joanna Robinson | Videos | July 19, 2013 | Comments ()


Because they couldn’t make the “Sherlock” panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this year, both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch recorded a short little loving message for their fans. Freeman’s is fine (if a bit terse). It is jarring to see a hobbit in shades. Cumberbatch, however, is a g-d delight. No actual plots we spoiled nor stuffed monkeys harmed in the making of it. Enjoy!

Happy Friday! Byeeee!!!


P.S. More Comic-Con coverage to come this afternoon.

P.P.S. Someone labeled that header photo “Benjamin Cumberbatch.” It wasn’t me, but I would like their job.

    Lemon curry?

  • Yes, yes, I'm 3 days late to this party. Whatever. My vote on the "Benjamin Cumberbatch" thing? The monkey is Benjamin...voila! Accurate labeling!

  • PerpetualIntern

    Benedict Cumberbatch is a DELIGHT.

    Oh, helloooo.

  • PDamian

    Mark Gatiss (Mycroft Holmes) said at the Comic-Con "Sherlock" panel that when on set, Martin is dry and sardonic, and Benedict is funny and goofy. Is there a better combination in nature?

  • emmalita

    No. And I would watch the hell out of a nature show that had the two of them interacting in their natural habitat. Who should narrate?

  • PDamian

    Oh, Sir David Attenborough, of course. "The smaller of the males remains aloof while the taller fans his curls and prances comically ... Extraordinary." Drink!

  • Ginger

    The voice and the curls and the insane cat eyes and the aristocratic nose and the obscene mouth and the calves - have you seen his calves?? - kill me DEAD. I want him to spank me with Sherlock's violin bow. Happy, happy birthday to a hot guy from a cool chick on a warm day.

  • Ginger

    Can't believe I forgot to mention - the hands. Such hands!

  • annie

    Martin Freeman is such a little shit; I love him. Benedict, though, is incredibly adorable and is also lounging confidently and sexily on a leather chair, which is how a few dreams I've had have started, minus some lit candles and baby oil. He's Mr Drama, but the guy has such a knack for comedy, too.

  • profession: none, or starlet

    That was made of win. And monkeys, and invisible machine-guns, but mostly win. Cumberbatch is a baaaaaad man.

  • Haystacks

    Martin Freeman is made of Sass. Have you ever seen him in an interview? He takes no shit. Cumberbatch is sweet and charming in contrast.

  • Jen

    Today is Benedict's birthday, so happy birthday you Hot Fucking Dork!

  • emmalita

    Worldwide Celebration!!!!!

  • koko temur

    How DO one celebrates this glorious event, emm?

    Quick, everyone, whip off your scarves. http://25.media.tumblr.com/tum...

  • PerpetualIntern

    Any day that includes this gif is a good day.

  • Wigamer

    I love me some sexy neck porn.

  • emmalita

    I couldn't have said it better.

    And in honor of the heat - sashay about in a sheet.

    Other Benedict Cumberbatch celebratory activities: Practice with a crop or a violin.
    Notice things about people.
    Solve an unsolvable crime.
    Watch Sherlock on an endless loop.

    Martin Freeman as himself, in Hobbit Gear is possibly the single most adorable thing on this planet. Sorry to all the baby animals out there, but you have a new god and his name is Martin.

  • koko temur

    I love how despite having the most fucking amazing voice ever, he doesnt use it all the time. I mean, if i had that ability i would order people around and pranked and made women pregnant by wispering and just abuse this kind of power all over the place.

  • Ruthie O

    You are so right! If he and Alan Rickman ever teamed up, resistance would be futile.

    But, God I'd like to try!

  • PerpetualIntern

    Is it possible to be part of an audible sandwich?

  • MissAmynae

    headphones- one in each channel. Which is of course What She Said.

  • koko temur

    Mmm have you heard him doing Rickman impression?

  • Ruthie O

    Thank you! How have I missed that? Cumberbatch really is as charmingly silly as I imagine him to be, isn't he?

  • emmalita
  • Meli_V

    Wow, that made me feeling tingly!

  • profession: none, or starlet

    That is scary. And wonderful. Seriously, he and Rickman need to do something together; I think they even look kinda-sorta alike when Cumberbatch has his hair darkened.

    I knew it! The whimpering dog!
