[RUMOR UPDATE] Benedict Cumberbatch to Play Sith Villain?

I like Benedict Cumberbatch and all, but excuse me while I do this:

I had to.

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).

Exhibit A. You ever need a wise, bald guy? He's your man.

In closing, let’s hope an official casting announcement hits the web soon so that all of this speculation will cease.
