Benedict Cumberbatch Is A “Porn Star Dragon”

It's Apt, Because Dragons Breathe Fire And He's Hot

Oh, good, Benedict Cumberbatch feels exactly as porny about this video of Benedict Cumberbatch acting out the role of Smaug (in “The Hobbit”) as I do. I’m sorry, that’s a fuck-me voice. No one gets to deny it. To capture the performance, Peter Jackson’s WETA workshop put Cumberbatch in a motion-capture suit and built a platform covered in foam and sheepskin from which to act. He called it “dragon porn” and told the Los Angeles Timesregarding his accommodations: “I was like, ‘This is cool, I can slink around like a porn star dragon.’”

Again, cool, we’re on the same page. Watch the video for some behind-the-scenes footage of Cumberbatch filming the Smaug scenes while I go sexualize and objectify Porn Star Dragon Benedict Cumberbatch in my head. [LA Times]

 

Coming Soon: The Lovely Bones

The trailer for the upcoming Peter Jackson-directed film “The Lovely Bones” is out exclusively through Apple and it looks amazing. Based on the book by Alice Sebold, “The Lovely Bones” tells the story of a young girl named Susie Salmon (played by “Atonement”‘s lovely and brilliant Saoirse Ronan) who has been murdered and watches over her family from heaven as she comes to terms with her own death and desire to see her killer — played by a mega-creepy-looking Stanley Tucci — punished. Her parents are played by Rachel Weisz (um, who I sat next to in a movie theater once and she was so pretty and nice) and Mark Wahlberg, in a role that Ryan Gosling was originally supposed to play (he even got chubs!). I love Marky Mark, but every time he opens his mouth, I hear Dirk Diggler and/or David McCall, his character in “Fear,” and it throws me off. Not sure he can play a grieving father, but perhaps I will be proved wrong. Check out the trailer here! [The Lovely Bones] Keep reading »
