We Don't Know Why Benedict Hosted a Sports Show, but We'll Take It

Mar 26 2014 - 7:36am

Benedict Cumberbatch took on an unusual role on Wednesday when he hosted the 2014 Laureus World Sports Awards in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia. While we don't normally associate the star of Sherlock with the world of sports, we welcome any excuse to look at Benedict being charming in front of the camera — and we think our "Cumberbitches [1]" will agree. Benedict will soon be on the move again as he prepares to film The Lost City of Z alongside Robert Pattinson [2]. (Cue fangirl freak-out!) He's also slated to play the lead role [3] in Hamlet at the Barbican Theatre in London from August to October 2015.

If you are a Benedict fan, don't forget to vote for your favorite geek icon in our March Man-ness poll [4]. He's currently trailing behind Supernatural's Jensen Ackles, but there's still enough time to get him to take the lead!
