English actor Benedict Cumberbatch seems to be everywhere these days, and now he is also everyone.
The star of the The Imitation Game had his impersonation skills put to the test in a recent interview with MTV After Hours Josh Horowitz. With sixty seconds on the clock, Cumberbatch is asked to do his best renditions of 11 famous actors, including Michael Caine, John Malkovich, Owen Wilson, Sean Connery, and Jack Nicholson. Cumberbatch’s abilities are uncanny! Some are better than others but overall this is a hysterical little clip and it was very clever of MTV to come up with their own “imitation game” for the brilliant actor to play on camera.
In The Imitation Game, Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the real-life genius mathematician and logician Alan Turing who is given the job of cracking Nazi Germany’s Enigma code during World War II. The movie also stars Keira Knightley, Match Point‘s Matthew Goode, and Mark Strong. The Imitation Game opens November 28.
Cumberbatch also famously stars as Sherlock Holmes in BBC’s massively popular Sherlock series and played infamous villain Khan in last year’s Star Trek: Into Darkness. He also voices the dragon Smaug in the second and third Hobbit films (the third one opens in theaters next month) alongside Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman and took on the role of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange in 2013’s The Fifth Estate. He really is everywhere!
