If you’ve been watching the BBC’s Sherlock (and you really should be watching it) then you’ve been exposed to the awesomeness that is Benedict Cumberbatch.
You should get used to hearing his name this year. He is the main villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, and has a two roles in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy as the voice of the dragon Smaug and the Necromancer. (It should also be noted that Martin Freeman, who is Bilbo, also plays Watson in Sherlock.)
What we have for you here is a pic of Cumberbatch as Wikileaks co-founder, and international fugitive, Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate.
That’s Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as Daniel Domscheit-Berg.
The film is directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Kinsey) and is based on the book Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange and the World’s Most Dangerous Website by Domscheit-Berg, as well as WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy by journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding.
