Benedict Cumberbatch might be the cheekiest actor working in Hollywood today. No one else has cheekbones so sharp that they could chisel marble and no other star so happily says and does the cheeky things we would say and do in their place. So, to celebrate Cumberbatch’s imminent Hollywood takeover, we’ve assembled 20 important cheeky Cumberbatch moments for your enjoyment.
As I’m sure you’ve already noticed, Benedict Cumberbatch is invading Hollywood this fall. This weekend he stars as Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate (and appears in 12 Years A Slave in limited release). In a few months, you’ll also catch him as Smaug the dragon and the Necromancer in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Not to mention, he’s also be popping up in August: Osage County and a new season of Sherlock.
Basically, Cumberbatch is taking over, and that’s completely fine! After all there’s no other actor alive who’s as good at providing startlingly sharp cheekbones and awesomely cheeky moments.
