But wait! The source dished much, much more:

This man has already DOMINATED the role of Sherlock Holmes, is expected to do the same when he takes on the villianous
Khan John Harrison in Star Trek Into Darkness, and NOW he's out-shining Hugh Grant while simultaneously parodying him… AS WELL AS Alan Rickman's Severus Snape in the Harry Potter flicks!
OH, and did we happen to mention that the latter two are both ANIMATED?!
That's right! In honor of a very special Valentine's Day episode of The Simpsons, our beloved Benedict Cumberbatch is guest-starring on the long-running Fox series in an attempt to heat up the romance with a very HIGHlariously familiar-looking British rom-com — Love, Indubitably!
Ch-ch-check him out (above)!
Seriously, we don't even care that we can't see his actual form here!
HE'S STILL FLAWLESS!
We sincerely hope that the producers realized what a gem of talent with which they were blessed for this episode, and utilized him in scenes other than that brief, albeit PERFECT, splash of greatness!
There's just so many more British characters to be parodied who could also help Homer and the guys win their wives back!
What do U think?? Will U be tuning in for The Simpsons this week?
