Benedict Cumberbatch is a busy man…

February 28, 2012 at 5:37 pm by greendragon  - 

We reported last week that Gandalf was spotted in Manhattan; we also know that Smaug isn’t in Middle earth right now either!  Benedict Cumberbatch is busy in Los Angeles, where he has been filming his role in the forthcoming Star Trek movie.  Two of his previous movies were Oscar nominated this year (War Horse and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), and as he was in town, Cumberbatch went along to watch the ceremony from Elton John’s party.  Later, as he headed into the Vanity Fair party, he told BBC’s Radio Five Live Breakfast show that he got ‘incredibly excited’ about his first time being in LA for the event, and that the ‘glamour… doesn’t stop.’  (You can listen to the interview with Cumberbatch on the BBC’s website until March 3rd; it starts around the 20 minute mark of this programme.)  He also told television reporters from the UK that he found the event ‘overwhelming’ and ‘extraordinarily… high-octane glamour’.  If you’re in the UK, you can watch the television clip here; or you can read a report on what Cumberbatch had to say, as reported by digital spy.

Cumberbatch also told the BBC that it was a ‘great honour to be invited to the party’.  We know of a good Oscar party at which he’d be very welcome next year!  If he thought things were overwhelming this year, just wait until all the excitement for The Hobbit at the 2013 Oscars!
