Benedict Cumberbatch is busy promoting his new movie The Imitation Game so he’s probably answered the question “can you do imitations?” about a billion times just this week. This would be one billion and one.
Cumberbatch nails John Malkovich, Alan Rickman, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Michael Caine, Christopher Walken, Bane and Matthew McConaughey but his Taylor Swift is really the best I’ve ever heard. In fact, I’d rather hear Cumberbatch sing Swift songs for two hours than Taylor herself.
My only gripe is everyone does this impressions. You can’t be an actor unless you a Walken or Nicholson. We need new people to imitate. Maybe I should work on my Benedict Cumberbatch impression. I’ll do it. First question — who the hell is Benedict Cumberbatch?
