Benedict_CumberbatchBenedict Cumberbatch has said that he doesn’t think he’ll end up typecast as a typical English-accented villain after the movie.

He told a certain newspaper: “I am very aware of the English transition of an actor being from a different culture coming over and they are being like, ‘God, this guy does theatre and c***. We’d better give him the bad guy role and a cape and just make him be really horrible’.”

“It was the pitch that J.J. gave me, a couple of scenes to audition with and he fleshed out the whole world of the rest of the script, and there’s a purpose and intention to his otherwise violent and pretty distressing actions that made it really intriguing.”

“And I thought, ‘Well, OK, there’s a purpose to this man’.”
