Ya know, normally we'd find this performance particularly intimidating…seeing as he's playing a dragon and all.
But Benedict Cumberbatch just looks TOO adorable in that grey motion capture suit.
We just WANT to take him seriously, but without the animation of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug to back up that treacherous voice, we can't! LOLz!
Plus, watch Peter Jackson discuss how perfect Ben was for the role! We love it!
Ch-ch-check out the clip (above)!!!
