Benedict Cumberbatch hates English villain stereotype

Feb 4 2013, 5:34am CST | by

Benedict Cumberbatch doesn't want to be stereotyped as an English villain.

The 36-year-old actor was concerned about being perceived as another well-spoken, British bad guy when he took on the role villain John Harrison in J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi sequel 'Star Trek Into Darkness'.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I am very aware of the English tradition of an actor being from a different culture coming over and they are being like, 'God, this guy does theatre and c**p. We'd better give him the bad guy role and a cape and just make him be really horrible.' "

The 'Sherlock' star also admitted he couldn't identify with the franchise's loyal group of fans - known as 'Trekkies' - because he has never been obsessed with anything.

Although he was aware of the TV series and films, Benedict admits 'Star Trek' didn't mean a "huge deal" to him growing up.

He confessed: "I watched it and knew of it and I've seen pretty much every generation of it and I've seen some of the films, but I have never been an obsessed fan.

"I've never had that longing to be in the club, even a soccer club actually. I guess it's something to do with being an only child. I was very gregarious, but, I think, never obsessed with anything. I just sort of bought the T-shirt."

Tom Hardy: ‘I’m a pr-ck…I’m not a great reader or watcher of films’

Nov 4 2014 6:10am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

We’ve been covering a lot of Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch lately, and I think we’re due for some good old fashioned blokin’. Just FYI: I don’t control the promotional gossip cycle! If I’m not covering one of our favorite men, that’s probably because there are no new photos of interviews. Luckily, Tom Hardy’s The Drop doesn’t come out in the UK until mid-November, so he’s still doing some promotional work. Hardy gave a decent interview to The Independent back at TIFF, but it j ...

Benedict Cumberbatch: ‘I always returned to the nest with great joy’

Benedict Cumberbatch has another in-depth interview out now to promote The Imitation Game. This one is with The Telegraph and the tone is a lot different than the somewhat cutesy, fan-baity and sexy interview he gave to Elle UK. I keep seeing Eddie Redmayne promoting The Theory of Everything in America and every time I see Redmayne, I think: “Well, he’s doing a very visible Oscar campaign, I wonder if that will work?” Meanwhile, Benedict still hasn’t come to America yet to pro ...
