The slightly strange looking man that played a brilliant Sherlock and will also star in the Hobbit said that he had to make an audition tape for the role on his iPhone whilst at home in the country over Christmas.
Benedict told the New York Times that he couldn’t make it the the auditions for J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi so he sat in a friends kitchen and recorded one.
When J.J Abrams received the clever Apple inspired video he called it ‘one of the most compelling audition readings [he]’d ever seen’. Well done Cumberbatch! Maybe Apple should contact him and get it for their next advert.
It just goes to show, you can do anything so long as you have your iPhone, or any sort of Apple product most likely. In fact, we’re not brainwashed at all, go everyone, take over the world!
