Benedict Cumberbatch Celebrity Impressions


Benedict Cumberbatch does 11 impressions in 60 seconds in an entertaining new MTV interview segment on behalf of his movie The Imitation Game. He’s like a chameleon! Check out the video below!

The actor manages to channel, with varying degrees of success, the voices and mannerisms of John Malkovich, Alan Rickman, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Michael Caine, Christopher Walken, Dark Knight Rises villain Bane and Matthew McConaughey. Cumberbatch then tries to impersonate Taylor Swift, which doesn’t go quite as well.

Cumberbatch, recently engaged to his longtime girlfriend Sophie Hunter, recently tried to recreate how Beyonce walks during an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” so impersonating celebrities is nothing new for him. In The Imitation Game, he portrays famed British scientist Alan Turing, whose cracking of the Nazis’ Enigma code helped turn the tide in World War II.
