Amazing Internet Things: Benedict Cumberbatch's Chewbacca Impression

So, does anyone else have a list of links that they turn to if they’re having a bad day? And you can just watch them whenever because they never stop being awesome and making you smile? Today’s Amazing Internet Thing is one of those.

(It’s really not an internet thing in the strictest sense, however, as it’s not a fan creation or anything like that, but since it’s a clip that lives on the internet and is not exactly new news at this point, I’m going with it. Indulge me, thank you muchly.)

Anyway. Sherlock star and general internet heartthrob Benedict Cumberbatch recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote his Wikileaks drama The Fifth Estate, and it just so happens that one of the other guests on Norton’s red sofa that evening happened to be movie legend Harrison Ford. Both Cumberbatch and Ford have been rumored to be taking part in the Star Wars sequels that are currently in pre-production, though no casting details on any of those films have been released as yet. Plus, well, Ford’s already been in Star Wars, and apparently Cumberbatch is a big fan, so there’s no way this topic wasn’t going to come up.

And that’s how we know that we can add the Wookie Chewbacca to Cumberbatch’s impressive list of on-point celebrity impressions. Which is basically the definition of must-watch.
