Benedict Cumberbatch Agrees With Claims That He Looks Like An Otter

Benedict Cumberbatch, the world’s favorite Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Strange, sure resembles an otter, which has been repeatedly noted by his fans in numerous photo comparisons. And now the 39-year-old actor has finally decided to prove the fans right! In a twist that not even Sherlock Holmes would have predicted, Cumberbatch was happy to admit that he agrees he does look like an otter.

Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on last Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show alongside Johnny Depp, who assisted the otter-looking actor in replicating the poses of otters, according to Time.

Graham Norton picked a number of photos of otters so Benedict Cumberbatch could imitate them. The photos included one group photo so that Johnny Depp could show his teamwork skills in imitating the animals alongside Cumberbatch. The two actors are currently promoting their Black Mass movie, which hit UK theaters last week.

When Benedict Cumberbatch asked the host of the show if he was casting for his next role as an otter, Norton replied, “You’re in it,” according to Time.

Benedict Cumberbatch was as always quick in the uptake, and that’s exactly what Cumberfans love about their idol the most. He found a correlation between the movie about violent gangsters and his fooling around at the show.

“People [who] like the viral pictures of me and an otter will go and see a film about a violent gangster. Yay!”

Here’s the full video of Benedict Cumberbatch imitating otters with Johnny Depp.

Benedict Cumberbatch loves his life of being a dad to a 5-month-old boy, Christopher Carlton, as reported by People magazine. The boy was born back in June after Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter held a wedding in February in their native England.

In an interview with Graham Norton on his BBC show, Benedict Cumberbatch revealed that he wants more boys.

“I might go for a [Cumber] batch of boys!”

The 39-year-old actor also said that having a boy is “everything.”

“I have a new life form that needs his father’s help in the world and his mother needs a little help once in a while.”

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Shakespeare play closed in October, which means the actor is going to be able to spend more time with his lovely son – and maybe even make more sons – until the fourth season of Sherlock begins production in the spring.

London has become the center of Hollywood superhero movies this week, with Wonder Woman and Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, starting shooting in the capital of the Great Britain, according to Londonist.

Gal Gadot, who plays the Amazonian warrior princess in Wonder Woman, has been photographed in a promo picture for the upcoming movie standing in front of Big Ben in a hoody. But what’s especially exciting is that Doctor Strange has started shooting on location in the capital and at the Longcross Studios on the edge of the M25. Why is it exciting? Because thousands of girls can spot Benedict Cumberbatch in London every now and then. The luckiest ones even manage to take a selfie with the otter-looking actor.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of 12 Years a Slave, plays alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange and was photographed standing next to the 39-year-old Sherlock star.

Doctor Strange is due out in 2016, while Wonder Woman isn’t expected until 2017.

Another Benedict Cumberbatch’s upcoming movie, Zoolander 2 directed by Ben Stiller, has received a great deal of criticism after the release of the movie’s first trailer earlier this month. Benedict Cumberbatch plays a transgender character named All, who is seen by transgender people as a mockery of the transgender community, the Inquisitr reported earlier.
