New Q & A - Actors who should be more famous and more...

"For the life of me I will never understand why Audra McDonald isn't bigger outside of Broadway." - Brian

"I will add to that list Irfhan Khan; he gets roles steadily, but in my mind he should be a household name." -Rebecca

"I'll also echo that Rosemarie DeWitt is one of the most talented working actresses, full stop. There is no other Best Supporting Actress of 2008." - Hayden

Say What, Benedict?

We asked you to amuse us by adding a caption or dialogue to this photo the winner is John

Benedict Cumberbatch, I am arresting you on the charge of SERIAL UBIQUITY. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

John gets to choose our banner theme up top this week. What'll it be John?

"Please! Please!... I still have time to prove I can carry a movie!"

"No, please, let me be Dr. Strange. I promise I won't fuck up another franchise!"

"I'll go to your Franchise-only Hell. Just let me win an Oscar first!"

Expanding on what Sad man said:

Guards: You, a hero? Please.
Benedict: Dormammu, then?
Guards: We'll keep it under advisement.

That role is bait-y because of the true life story but the execution for doing a movie and story like that will be risky. It is either going to be too depressing or a botched vanilla white-wash of the true story.

In the end, Waltz will probably be Harvey's lead horse.... in lead regarding the male awards contenders he has.

Across town the Police force's new 'Shipper Unit was also arresting Martin Freeman... and setting up a nice candle-lit jail cell.

My Oscar chances are....an enigma!"

British actor Bendedict Cumberbatch (second from left) is escorted by representatives of BBC Wales back to the set of the TV series Sherlock. According to witnesses, Cumberbatch fled the Cardiff studios, reportedly screaming obscenities and demanding to speak with his agent. No date has been set as yet for the premiere of the popular crime drama's fourth season.

Hahaha paul outlaw, that was hilarious! My friends keep whining about that round the clock

June 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRizz

No, I won't be the lead in the second season of True Detective.


This isn't going the way it was in my fantasy. Or it does? ;)

Watson, assemble the Cumberbitches...

I am not sure that the timing is right for this.

They are honouring D-Day in Europe and Turing was instrumental in contributing to the ending of WWII. It is also the 60th anniversary of Alan Turing's death.
He committed suicide after being convicted of engaging in homosexual acts and offered the choice of imprisonment or chemical castration chose the chemicals. He did this because he wanted to finish his work but the chemicals made him depressed and he killed himself.

It is a story that needs to be told and I hope this film does him justice.

Sorry for putting a downer on this but I just felt it was such bad timing.

June 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMargaret

You've got the wrong man. I'm Benedict Cumberbatch the MOVIE STAR! I've never heard of Benedict Cumberbatch the TV star. I swear!

June 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBird

Don't arrest me now! I don't even have an Emmy yet, let alone an OSCAR!!!

June 8, 2014 | Unregistered Commentercraver

Margaret: Um, there's doubt that it was actually a suicide and not, instead, an accidental death.

"The Fifth Estate was not my fault!"

June 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel

You still don't know my name? I've been in the last 100 movie released and yet you still DON'T KNOW MY NAME???

Is there a time limit for collecting the prize of banner choice? It's just the week that it happens?

June 9, 2014 | Unregistered Commenteradri

Hi Nathaniel, thanks for choosing my caption. Now I know what it feels like to win an Oscar! I can think of three potential ideas for the banner, you're free to choose whichever you feel. 1. Eyebrows (raised preferably) 2. Moustaches (actresses must be included) 3. Palme Portraits (Cannes prize winners posing with their prizes...inspired by Julianne's photo. I came up with this one which is now a bit out of date as I want to see you with a homemade Palme complete with cardboard box display case. Maybe a golden lion and bear too!) Sorry for my indecisiveness!

June 9, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjohn

adri - did you win recently or somethign? some people did not collect their prizes. the past couple of contests

June 9, 2014 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Yes, for the Macbeth. (I was so pleased).
Is it too late to make a request?
