The Many Faces Of Benedict Cumberbatch

Last week saw the premiere of Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange in all sorts of places worldwide, and today the sorcerer supreme projects himself on screens across the USA and Canada. I thought the film to be a fun and spectacularly trippy addition to Marvel's Cinematic Universe, and I had no qualms whatsoever about featuring its star Benedict Cumberbatch in our quiz this week.

For Benedict Cumberbatch isn't just a good actor with a great talent for vocal mimicry (seriously, he can parody virtually everyone with his voice), he can also change his charisma at will. When needed, he can disappear in the background as the thoughtful shy guy, or command the screen with an arrogant presence.

So once again I'm going to use eleven close-ups of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which movies or shows they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun. Try to see how far you get without using IMDb!

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (or earlier if someone gets all eleven of them right).

James Marsh and Kurt Halfyard contributed to this story.

And here he is, as Stephen Strange, in Doctor Strange.

This picture isn't part of the quiz yet, but the others are. Browse through them all, and see how many you recognize!

#1 - Star Trek: Into Darkness
#5 - Oh gods. I didn't see it, but is that Zoolander 2?
#9 - Not sure. Is that a scene from Black Mass maybe?

Wish I knew more of his work. My eldest daughter and I just binged Sherlock. What a great actor he is. The whole cast of that series for that matter.

Do I? I don´t have my magical band-aid anymore, but Kowalski said it quite clearly "no doublevees". Ain´t it classified, btw.? ;)

kikukaNovember 4, 2016 8:21 PM

oh,#9 I skipped - that happens when I don´t read properly :)
plus, the tie looked a bit like Alan Turing´s, but not much the hair&facial expression. and then I saw HER! Mrs. Cumberbatch. so that´d make
#9 Burlesque Fairytales
unless I´m wrong, that´s one they played together.

Ard VijnNovember 4, 2016 9:29 PM

All correct!
That just leaves 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11...

Ard VijnNovember 4, 2016 9:31 PM
