Benedict Cumberbatch Tries Out Some New Names

cumberbatch1.jpg

There is no doubt that Benedict Cumberbatch has one of the best names around. It rolls off the tongue, it sounds highbrow and grand, and it can even be shortened to Benny. It has no obvious flaws.

Jimmy Kimmel agrees, but he also started thinking whether he would have quite the same gravitas as a performer if he was called something else; something less obviously brilliant.

Benny, never one to shy away from an experiment, graciously agreed - the results are extremely enjoyable; prepare to be approached in a bar by a rather handsome insurance salesman named Gary Miller.
