"Finally i can photobomb myself!" “Benedict’s figure will be ‘premiere ready’, showing the actor looking impeccably groomed in a stylish dark suit. His immaculate red carpet style will be paired with a warm and relaxed expression, and his famous tousled hairstyle. Work on the figure is well underway, and the actor has been heavily involved with the creation process. Benedict has given two sittings for our talented studios team, during which hundreds of precise measurements and numerous photographs were captured to be used by our sculptors and artists. “Finally I can photobomb myself!” joked Cumberbatch. “What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax. I’ve been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy! The main privilege for me was the process and seeing the amount of exacting work and skill brought to every detail of this art form. It is a wonderful combination of old and new, hi-tech and lo-fi skills. Measurements, hand inserted individual hairs and sculpted features. As a subject, you stand still surrounded by sculpters, painters, photographers, measurers and a whole army of people who bring together your likeness… it’s an extraordinary experience. Also my agents will be thrilled, they’ve wanted a clone of me for some time!” Benedict’s figure will be the latest British star to join our A-list line up, and will take up residence in October, alongside fellow Brits Judi Dench and Kate Winslet, as well as a host of Hollywood names from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, to Julia Roberts and Johnny Depp. More at the website.

more versions on the way, hopefully.
So just sat casually watching itv heartbeat and Benedict Cumberbatch shows up. Now I know he did two episodes in the show but this episode was neither of them but his father Timothy Carlton was in this episode. So Ben was playing a extra in one of his dad’s episodes, this makes me happy. :)
Watch (party guest from around 29:00 - bit above at around 34:55).

Benedict Cumberbatch Looks Pretty Good On The Set Of ‘Black Mass’[HQ]

Black Mass filming in Boston, June 24. #BenedictCumberbatch
Celebrating the life and legacy of Alan Turing who was born in London 102 years ago today, we reveal new image from the upcoming film The Imitation Game (in cinemas Nov 14th) which sees Benedict Cumberbatch give a legendary performance as the enigmatic genius, and founder of computer science.
Early word from test screenings of The Imitation Game suggest that the Alan Turing code-breaking drama will offer one of Benedict Cumberbatch’s strongest performances to date. At the very least, it should erase memories of a certain other intel biopic - it rhymes with ‘the pith pestate’ – and bring cinematic redress to one of Britain’s most unfairly treated heroes. At best, the Oscars could be calling…
These exclusive stills from the new issue of Empire (on sale June 26) show Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a mathematician who turned wartime code-breaker and brought his skills to bear cracking the German Enigma code. Alongside him (left) is Charles Dance as Commander Alastair Denniston, a fellow decrypter, who helped Turing spearhead Britain’s efforts to break the Nazi code. Lurking, fittingly, in the shadows is Mark Strong who plays legendary MI6/SIS head Stewart Menzies
Sadly for fans of enormous whirling machines and people poring over scraps of paper, The Imitation Game is not a remake of Enigma. Instead, Norwegian director Morten Tyldum, the man behind ace blackly-comic thriller Headhunters, is focusing on the struggles of the man himself – specifically his sexuality and the social pressures that weighed so heavily on him.
“It is such a complex story,” explains Tyldum in the magazine. “It was the gay rights element, but also how his ideas were kept secret and how incredibly important his work was during the war, that he was never given credit for it.”
Tyldum’s pledge is to make the story “as multi-sided as possible”, and to help him do that he can also call on the talents of Keira Knightley, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech and Matthew Goode.
The Imitation Game is out on November 14. Pick up the August issue of Empire, on sale on Thursday, for more on the movie.
