With rumours swirling that Benedict Cumberbatch was set to be in J.J Abrams’ revival of the Star Wars series, I now know the perfect role Benny could play.
Not Darth Vader. And no, not even Darth Maul. If anything, he should really be taking on the role as Chewbacca.
Stopping by The Graham Norton Show, host Norton discussed Cumberbatch’s ability to give spot-on performances such as his role in the new film The Fifth Estate, in which he plays whistleblower Julian Assange.
But lo and behold, Benny pulls out his favourite Chewbacca moment and it’s absolutely hysterical. So much so, that he even seems to shock Harrison Ford!
*sigh* This man just keeps getting better and better.
