I like Benedict Cumberbatch and all, but excuse me while I do this:
Anyways, yesterday, I posted about the possibility of Cumberbatch being cast in the Star Wars: Episode VII. As of today, however, Badass Digest is claiming that Cumberbatch is not only joining Episode VII, but he has also been cast in a majorly, villainous role for the entire trilogy….probably as a Sith warrior.
As per usual, nothing has been confirmed yet, but people already can’t stop talking about it. If you ask me, being cast as a Sith warrior would be right up Cumberbatch’s alley, especially after his involvement as a villain in Star Trek Into Darkness (I’m still wondering why there’s no colon in that, but whatever).
Whether you were a fan our not, most people agree that he did really well as bad guy. However, if I were Cumberbatch, I might be a wee bit cautious about this, lest he get typecasted or anything, (unless he’s okay with that, because trust me, it has worked for some people).
In closing, let’s hope an official casting announcement hits the web soon so that all of this speculation will cease.
