A source close to the situation explained:
Something Is NOT Rotten In The State Of Denmark Now That Benedict Cumberbatch Is Set To Play Hamlet In 2015!!
To be or not to be, that is the question!
And the answer is to be, clearly, since Benedict Cumberbatch is now confirmed as Hamlet, Prince of Denmark in an upcoming production of the famed William Shakespeare play in London!
From one iconic literary character to another!
Benedict is set to take the stage of the Barbican Theatre in London starting August 2015 and will play the Hamlet until October.
Book your tickets now, Cumberb*tches!!
We just hope he'll have time to film Sherlock either during his stage run or long before!
Otherwise the fans will NOT be happy!!
