Benedict Cumberbatch

Cast

“Cumberbatch - it sounds like a fart in a bath, doesn't it? What a fluffy old name. I can never say it on a Monday morning. When I became an actor, Mum wasn't keen on me keeping it.”

Yes, I know I'm overlooking a lot of contenders, but this man is the "actor of the year." In a short time, he has made himself into a huge sensation (probably by accident). From his suave looks, to his baritone British accent; so few actors have such a specific sex appeal. For a long time he's been a professional actor, working in various roles, and keeping fresh every time. My personal favorite is his modern characterization of Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock" from BBC. But picking one role is like picking a single flower from a bucay, they all blossom so brilliantly.

Don't want to objectify him in any way but he is seriously one attractive man.
