Benedict Cumberbatch is more than just the star of “Sherlock” — he’s also a master impressionist. A video from Comic-Con 2014 makes that clear as the actor imitates Jar Jar Binks, Gollum, a Frenchman, a Bostonian and more.
The impressions come in an interview with MTV that rapidly devolves into silly impressions after Cumberbatch is asked about the Boston accent he had to use in the recently filmed Whitey Bulger biopic, “Black Mass.”
More impressive than Cumberbatch’s Boston accent would be his Jar Jar/Gollum. Both sound rather similar but both are also quite lovely.
Voiceover work is definitely waiting for Cumberbatch if this whole “Sherlock” thing doesn’t work out.
