MTV News caught up with Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch at the Golden Globe Awards last weekend – the actor was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for his turn as the world’s only consulting detective. Sadly, he lost out to Kevin Costner’s performance in Hatfields and McCoys (a fact that deserves another whole post/rant on its own), but, nevertheless, this carpet clip is worth a look for all the Cumberbatch fans out there, just because it’s kind of fantastic.
In theory, the thrust of this interview is that Cumberbatch finally shares a favorite line from his upcoming turn as [Mysterious Big Bad Villain to Be Identified Later] in the upcoming Star Trek sequel. Full disclosure: if you’re a Trekkie watching this clip specifically for this moment, prepare yourselves for disappointment now, because the only line the actor utters is something that’s already shown up in the film’s promotional materials. (Dull. /Sherlock voice.)
However, if you’ve ever wanted to watch the man who’s mostly famous for playing an aloof, anti-social genius get super excited because Adele passes by on the red carpet? Then this is the video for you.
