Benedict Cumberbatch says he is one of the "greatest players" around.
The 42-year-old screen star is about to come to the forthcoming British religious spy for Greville Wynne in the Cold War film Ironbark, and in 2004, the film The Fifth Estate was released by Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, and the star has revealed he likes to play the role of "smart characters, because he is focused on them "because they are so different to whom he is.
Talking to the Star Magazine, Cumberbatch said: "Great pleasure [of acting] is transformation – a departure from what I know or who I am. It's perverted, I'm probably one of the most stupendous players I know. I played one of the smartest characters because I attracted her. They are so different from me. "
Cumberbatch is best known for displaying geniuses on the screen, as he also portrayed the mathematical expert Alan Thuringia's The Simulation Game, and outstanding detective detective Sherlock Holmes Sherlock, written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatis.
His latest film sees his voice titular and tricky in the upcoming animation of The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss's 1957 book "How Grinch Stole Christmas!", And he acknowledged that the only work on the project presented new challenges to him.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: "It was weird. It was wonderful. It was all that as a voice artist in a long project like this. It was very happy, hard work, but fun."
Cameron Seely, 11, shows Cindy Lou Qa's personality and, although she and Cumberbatch's Grinch together make up most of the scenes, they never met during the recording.
Benedict said: "It's an odd thing that she should not be in the room, but it's not new to anyone who has ever done any of these [animated films] Before that, it's strange to be satisfied for the first time during the promotion of Cameron films. "
