benedict cumberbatch will play shere khan in live action jungle book

Benedict Cumberbatch is going WILD!

Well, he will in the Andy Serkis directed Jungle Book: Origins remake for Warner Bros., that is!

The Hobbit actor is the first lead to be officially signed on and he's going to voice Shere Khan!

Ya know, the evil tiger who opposes Mowgli in the film!

Totally sounds like a perfect fit for the Sherlock star's voice!

We wonder how he'll stack up to the Disney live-action version where Idris Elba will be voicing Shere Khan!

More importantly, does this mean he'll have to pose for pictures with tigers now, instead of penguins?

We're on board with that!

Benedict with cute animals wins any day of the week!

Something is NOT rotten in the state of ticket sales for Benedict Cumberbatch's Hamlet!

According to the ticketing website Viagogo, the forthcoming 2015 production of Hamlet starring Benedict has become the fastest-selling ticket in London theater history.

In fact, in the hours prior to the release of tickets, the website logged that more than twice as many searches for Hamlet tickets than for Jay Z and Beyoncé's On The Run concert in ye ole London!

Sure, Beyoncé might be the Queen Bey, but Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark! For sooth!

Now, online tickets may be gone for Hamlet, but you won't have to suffer the slings and arrows of this outrageous fortune!

The Barbican theater is releasing 100 tickets per each performance, and apparently more info will be released about it in 2015. Huzzah!

Well, there seems to be some method to this madness! Congrats Benedict!

Benedict Cumberbatch Looks Positively Perfect Posing With A Penguin At His First Comic-Con!

| Filed under: Film FlickersComic-ConBenedict Cumberbatch

benedict cumberbatch poses with a penguin

So, if you're Benedict Cumberbatch and it's your first time at Comic-Con what do you do?

Obviously pose with a person in a penguin suit to make the internet go crazy, DUH!

Well, there IS totally a reason for this picture being in existence, OBVIOUSLY, but for a second we'll let you think up your OWN explanation…

Ok? Done?

The Sherlock actor is appearing at SDCC to promote his film The Penguins of Madagascar which hits theaters in November and features his voice!

Which means that, sadly, the movie doesn't show his beautiful face, but you still get to hear his brilliant British drawl!

While we wait for the movie to hit theaters, MORE PICTURES WITH PENGUINS!!

Benedict Cumberbatch's Birthday Sparks An Attempt At A World Record! See The Sherlock Takeover HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaGIFsBenedict Cumberbatch

happy birthday benedict cumberbatch fans attempt sherlock holmes record

Well, this is certainly one way to celebrate his birthday!

Fans of Benedict Cumberbatch got together in London on Saturday to record a birthday shout out for the famed actor because, why wouldn't you?

But, what makes it that much more special is that the fans did it dressed as Sherlock and may have possibly, probably set a world record!

How cool is that??

The 113 attendants had to be wearing a cape and have a magnifying glass in order to be considered as taking part in the world record attempt, which is currently under consideration by the judges!

However, the get together at University College London wasn't JUST for Ben's birthday or to break a record!

The group gathered due to their support of the Undershaw Preservation Society which is currently undertaking the task of preserving the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, aka the man who created Sherlock Holmes!

So, a birthday wish for Benedict, a possible world record, and some harmless fun in the name of a worthy cause? Sounds like a great day to us!

Ch-ch-check out the attendees in costume (below)!!!
