Benedict “Actually Looks Like An Actual Otter” Cumberbatch is out promoting his new movie The Imitation Game, a true story about the British mathematician Alan Turing.
As anyone who follows celebrity news knows, long days of promotion and being asked the same questions over and over can get a little boring for stars. Thankfully, a reporter for MTV asked Benedict to do some impressions of other famous actors, and it would appears that Benedict had a great time doing so.
Even though he only had 60 seconds to do as many impressions as possible, he managed to channel (in order): John Malkovich, Alan Rickman, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Michael Caine, Christopher Walken, Bane (from The Dark Knight Rises), Matthew McConaughey, Taylor Swift (wow) and Christopher Walken (again, this time in Pulp Fiction).
You may remember Kevin Spacey did the same thing a couple of weeks ago on Jimmy Fallon. Let’s compare…
So, who the master impressionist between the two?
Spacey’s Christopher Walken impression is arguably better, but Benedict’s are overall more…well, charming. Combine that with the sheer difficulty of being John Malkovich (just ask John Cusack) and it looks like we’ve got a winner here, folks.
